Lil’ Kim Unveils New ‘Dead Gal Walking’ Cover Art

Dead Gal Walking

Lil’ Kim has revealed the new cover art for her single “Dead Gal Walking.” A zombie Kim lurks in the background on the dark and bloody artwork designed by Dusty Designs.

Ravndahl tells TMZ that she posted the selfie online and soon noticed that Kim was using it on her social sites. She is hoping to reach a financial settlement and avoid a lawsuit.

The song, which dropped on Halloween, is set to appear on Kim’s mixtape Hard Core 2K13, now due on Nov. 29 aka Black Friday.

But you just don’t know how to make that final move and let go of it. Like it’s not easy, it’s something that you have to learn how to do, and I think we’re all still learning.”
