Originally announced in July 2013, the project has experienced several delays since its Halloween 2013 release date.
But Royal Reign’s mother has been making up for her absence. In the past week, she has dropped remixes to Beyoncé’s “Flawless” and Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Nigga,” and released the Nicki Minaj diss track “Identity Theft.”
Hard Core 2K14 marks the follow-up to Kim’s 2011 mixtape Black Friday.
She also plans to launch a tour to support the mixtape.
