Lil’ Kim Joining 50 Cent’s G-Unit?
Lil’ Kim once rocketed to fame as the first lady of Notorious B.I.G.’s Junior M.A.F.I.A. crew. And now, years after cutting ties with Junior M.A.F.I.A. and moving out of B.I.G.’s shadow, Kim may, once again, be aligning herself with a male hip-hop star, an old friend and former nemesis, 50 Cent.
According to HipHopDX, on June 18, at Atlanta’s own Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash 16, G-Unit’s latest signee, Shawty Lo, brought out special guest, Lil’ Kim, to the stage, where Kim announced her allegiance to G-Unit.
“If y’all don’t know, this my boy right here. G-Unit South, that’s where it’s at,” said Kim. “And I’m family too, down with the G-Unit camp. We got surprises for y’all.”
Kim’s comment has left many assuming that she’ll soon officially join G-Unit Records, if she hasn’t already done so.
A possible union between Lil’ Kim and 50 Cent has been circulating in the rumor mill for some time now. The two rappers have a long history together that includes their 2003 No. 1 hit, “Magic Stick.” And despite having beefed with each other in the past (a battle which resulted in Kim’s former boyfriend shooting at 50 Cent and his G-Unit crew) , the two have become friendly again in recent years.
50 Cent has also been adding to the rumor mill with his recent comments about Kim.
“I haven’t had the opportunity to record with her,” said 50 Cent. “We was talking about getting together to do something so we’ll probably get together. When she said we was working together we had conversations about going in to do it cause you know, we had ‘Magic Stick’ in the past and we made some things that felt good so I was like ‘I’m open to it.’ So we’ll find some time to get in and go ahead and do something.”
Could this lead to a revival of Lil’ Kim’s career? –nicholas robinson
