Hey Everyone! I just uploaded a Lil Kim mini mix to IG. I have had so much fun doing these mini mixes and diving deep into these artists amazing catalogs. I love finding new original samples and learning more about the creative process behind the production by deconstructing songs in this way.
Lil Kim has a sense of political awareness around her sexuality where sex is more than just desire and pleasure. It’s about power. She has paved the way for artists like Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and the wave of sexually empowered female rappers of today. From her iconic outfits that push the boundaries of censorship, to finding her way as a female in the industry. She was one of the first in Hip Hop to flip the male gaze to her advantage and capitalise off of being sexualised. Alongside Biggie, she created a sexual icon in Hip Hop that has rippled out into the forefront of popular female MCs even 20 years later. Kim has undoubtedly been an iconic figure in Hip Hop and pop culture.
Lil Kim is a multifaceted Woman who has had a huge impact on modern music, female artists, fashion and Hip Hop.
Peace and Love to the OG Queen Bee x
