It's the year of Y2Kim, which is precisely why Brooklyn's own diminutive diva is massing her musical troops at the border - preparing for a no-prisoners hip hop takeover of the multi-platinum variety. Since establishing herself as a major solo player in 1997 with an RIAA platinum certification for her breakout '96 HARDCORE album, platinum with the daring "Not Tonight" and gold for her unforgettable "No Time" single, the Junior M.A.F.I.A. vet has become a true star - so much so that earlier this year she was invited, alongside such presenters as Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, Patti Smith, and John Mellencamp, to induct Earth, Wind & Fire into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. In between, she contributed to recordings by Jay-Z, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Mobb Deep, Funkmaster Flex, Black Rob, labelmate Lil' Cease, and Tommy Lee's Methods of Mayhem. The second release from Kim's own Queen Bee label, the incendiary album finds Kim collaborating with such serious talents as Prestige and Lil' Cease, not to mention executive producer partner Puff Daddy. The superstar studio team is sure to turn heads with the album's standout style and Kim's distinctive lyrical twist on true blue sexcapades. Achieving magna cum louda excellence on such ground-shaking tracks as "Suck My D!#k," "Single Black Female" and "Who's Number One", THE NOTORIOUS K.I.M. will define the new hip hop moment and open wide the doors to Kim's singular musical vision and outspoken world view. This Queen Bee is on the buzz.

Muze PNote If the Notorious B.I.G. was the King of Rap, then his female protege Lil' Kim is without doubt the Queen. After postponing the release date of her album for a year, the Queen Bee finally delivered her long awaited sophomore album THE NOTORIOUS K.I.M.
Muze PNote As with her debut HARDCORE, Kim sticks to the original bad girl formula that made her famous. With songs like "Suck My D**k" and "Aunt Dot," Lil' Kim kicks rhymes that make the hardest male MCs seem soft. However, she shows her feminine side on the Biggie tribute "Hold On," featuring Mary J. Blige and the sentimental vocals of an almost-in-tears Kimberly Jones. Guest appearances from Redman, Sisqo, Puff Daddy, Junior Mafia, and Grace Jones all make for a well-rounded CD.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (8/3/00, p.52)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...A suprisingly upbeat party record....[She] still has an admirably tough and nasty mouth on her, and it's good to hear a Queen Bee sting."

Q (9/00, p.101)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...Hip hop's reigning queen and this tough, funky, star-studded album...can consolidate her supremacy....hip hop has never been sexier."

Mixmag (8/00, p.173)
- 5 out of 5 - "...With explicit storytelling and roughneck sagas mingling with robotic beats that are heading for a dancefloor near you....Kim proves herself an on-point, hilarious MC; totally filthy and totally entertaining."

CMJ (7/10/00, p.31)
- "...The Queen Bee still knows how to get a rise out of the hip-hop nation with her XXX fantasy flow and sensually guttural voice..."

The Source (8/00, pp.221-2)
- 3.5 mics out of 5 - "...The Queen Bee is still incomparible when it comes to delivery, flow and near-comical filthy content..."

Rap Pages (8-9/00, p.106)
- "...[Her] second offering of sexually-driven content will not disappoint." - Rating: A-

NME (Magazine)
(6/24/00, p.42)
- 8 out of 10 - "...Easily the best record to come out of the Junior MAFIA gang since Biggie's posthumous LIFE AFTER DEATH....proving she's still the queen of rap."
