VIDEO OF THE DAY:
Lil Kim – “Crush On You”

Lil Kim > Nicki Minaj
I genuinely enjoyed Kim’s music. I was a preteen listening to that raunchy sh– on Kim’s debut album “Hard Core.” How is that compared to little girls listening to Nikki Minaj today?
It’s obvious the quality in today’s mainstream music is “different” then that of just a couple decades ago..
Besides the fact that Junior M.A.F.I.A. was that deal, Kim brought that originality, that real raw sh–. Nicki Minaj is straight Lil Kim x Lil Wayne. & I personally don’t approve of Lil Wayne, but that’s just me.
