New Music: Lil’ Kim – ‘I Am Kimmy Blanco’

I Am Kimmy Blanco

While Black Friday came and went without her mixtape Hardcore 2K13, Lil’ Kim comes through with a new song. Following the dancehall-infused “Dead Gal Walking,” the rap mafiosa extends her reign on her ominous anthem “I Am Kimmy Blanco.”

“I am Kimmy Blanco/ The motherfuckin’ head honcho/ So you better have your poncho/ I’m about to rain on you pronto,” she declares.

She also posted the tracklisting for Hardcore 2K13. The 13 tracks include appearances from Miley Cyrus (“Bad Bitch”), French Montana (“Suicide”), Yo Gotti (“Stadium Muzic”), and Jadakiss (“Real Sick”), plus three bonus tracks.

Listen to the Queen Bee rule with her bossy banger.

Tracklisting: R. Kelly – ‘Black Panties’

Black Panties

The Black Panties are coming off. R. Kelly has revealed the tracklisting for his upcoming album. Due Dec. 10, the standard edition includes collaborations with Ludacris, Kelly Rowland, 2 Chainz, and Jeezy. The deluxe adds three tracks including the Future-assisted “Tear It Up” and “Show Ya Pussy” featuring Migos and Juicy J.

“I’m on a Benjamin Button-type of mission right now,” Kellz told Fuse. “I’m going back to the old school R. Kelly days where he did the 12 Play, the sexual songs mixed with the hip-hop songs.”

Those who pre-order the album will get an exclusive bonus track called “Lights On.” If you pre-order the deluxe bundle, you will receive your very own pair of black panties.

See the tracklisting and listen to a snippet of “Legs Shakin’” featuring Ludacris.

Tracklisting: B.o.B – ‘Underground Luxury’

Underground Luxury

Bobby Ray is back for the third time with his album Underground Luxury. The Atlanta rapper has revealed the official tracklisting via iTunes ahead of the Dec. 17 release date.

The 15 songs include the Future-assisted single “Ready” and ratchet banger “HeadBand” featuring 2 Chainz, with appearances from Chris Brown (“Throwback”), Priscilla Renea (“John Doe”), and T.I. and Juicy J (“We Still in This Bitch”).

He considers the follow-up to 2012’s Strange Clouds to be his most eclectic and well-rounded project yet.

“On this album I plan on introducing to people and reintroducing to people the side of me that they didn’t see on the first album,” B.o.B told Rolling Stone. “On that album, I didn’t really show my underground side and I didn’t really tell my story as much and as vividly as I’m telling it now.”

See the tracklisting below.
