Lil Kim

Li'l Kim returns to take her spot atop the hip-hop hierarchy with a new track, titled "Took Us a Break".

The Queen B returns to teach the rap newbies a few lessons.

Kim, 42, dazzles her hardcore fans with razor sharp lyrics such as:

I was raised in the school of hard knocks/ These bitches is class clowns / Giving y’all my old clothes, my old flows like hand-me-downs / I see y’all watching my Snap / Trying to see what else you could jack.

"Took Us a Break" is Kim's reminder to all newcomers that she didn't retire, and now she's back with a vengeance.



  • Clorox

    i love her. and i bet she ain't lyin bout that either.

  • Kayke

    Would love to love it but....she should've stuck to her own sound, not this autotune garbage.

  • Victorious82

    So Kim, I love you but it’s a no for me dawg

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    She needs to take a break from all that plastic surgery.


  • cherrypie

    But why she sound a little like Lil Wayne tho???? old is she now?

  • Kimberly King

    Mane I love me some Kim, but she looks terrible in this video. Can she un-bleach her skin and get rid of the blonde wigs ?

  • Tazhette

    Love the sound. I listened to it a few times this morning. A fan since her first album and this song does not disappoint

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Love Kim. Hate the hook, too much like trash Future. Loved when she went to her own voice, tho. Hate this new rap. Sigh. Funny how she still throwing shade with the bloody barbie.

  • Rayne

    It's gotta future flow to it. Kinda sound like Wayne, but it's Kimberly. I can get with it.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    She looks good up top! finally still miss your original face doe!

  • SweetTEE

    Man... deep ?. I grew up on Kim and Fox, Digga and all those bomb chicks. I hate this new stuff. But good luck Kim,glad you are back

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    People still use auto tune? Women at that. Nooooo Lil Kim!

  • MsVAllDay

    I wasn't feeling it until she used her regular voice! Good beat, good flow, but that fake voice ish ya'll doing plz leave that to Future.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Ms.Vanilla

    Oh please. We haven't had real music since the 70's.

  • Benjamin

    If she would have left the autotune alone, this would have been decent. That being said, her self hate is so sad and disturbing, and it's really unfortunate that she messed with that pretty face that God blessed her with.

  • SayWhatNow?

    Kim looks really pretty

  • Keisha Hannah

    Lil kim fan but i dont like this.

  • Julia Lyons

    About damn time!??????

    I do miss the pretty little dark skin Lil Kim!


    She does.

  • Marlika

    Now I've been a Queen B fan from day 1. With that being said this shit is straight GABAGE!!

    So the plastic surgery messed with her vocal cords? I can't understand a word in the hook!! And really you using auto tunes??

    On top of everything I can't stand to phucking look at her deformed ass!!

    I hope Kim is reading this. Your straight PURE PHUCKING TRASH!!!

    JUST LOOK AT HOW YOUR PHUCKED UP YOUR SKIN & FACE!! Who is really hating on you? You have absolutely nothing to be jealous of. The only thing you have that someone could be jealous of is your memory of BIG.

    You really pissed me off with this garbage!! ?????

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    It's ight

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    this gif kills me every time lol

  • Crazy tee

    She is going for the younger crowd but I'm an old school Kim fan and this is not the Kim I like...I hope it work for her but I want "No Time" Kim...she need to mix old and new in that cd or it may flop

  • Anunnaki

    Not my type of music, but , I won't knock a hustle...

  • ShWa

    I just wish she would have left her face alone, just can't get used to this half white looking Kim.....

  • klwbaby

    I thought that skin bleach was permanent.

  • ShWa

    For real!

  • klwbaby

    I don't know if this was a rumor but I heard that if Biggie was still alive, she would have never had plastic surgery.

  • TheWildChild
  • Junkanoo

    American popular culture infantilizes people at 42 l would expect more substance.Rap doesn't need autotune it doesn't sound cool or better its pointless. She needs to stay on break and find her original face while she's at it. I like Kim but this is subpar not much effort went into this crap

  • Noirluv45

    Girl, you ain't never lied! ????????

  • Lena Justin

    I can't take you serious Kim bragging about buying what you want when I've read on a few occasions your house is going up for auction.

  • Kilroy

    It’s ok...

  • sunni_daze

    Kim looks good in that picture and its not up for debate. My bish coming back all thse females rapper... the game is being infused.

  • Noirluv45

    I miss the conscience days of rap. The messages were positive, encouraging, and spoke to the truth of life in the hood or our lives as Black people. Now...??

  • shun king


  • Rachel


  • Sinny

    Say what you want about Lil Kim-Lee; but she ALWAYS had swag. I can't understand half the stuff she's saying though, but she's definitely looking like someone's down @ss swaggin' auntie lol I think might download this, drop the top on the whip today (it's 75+ degrees here!), and pump this on repeat in these DC streets!

  • Django the God

    Is this a Beyonce dwarf?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I'm here for some Kim....... setting Trends ..... blewp ... hate if ya want..... Kim stay in rotation .... add this to the track list..... oop .
    ..... 1111111 ?

  • Ms..N

    Lmao not Scooby doo. Lol they need to bring back the basic cartoons..

  • Ms..N

    I would think Pac calling her ugly may have given her a complex

  • Blaque Mahogany

    "I've been gone for a minute now I'm back with the jumpoff".

    It's current. Catchy. She has the autotune on the hook for the mumble rap fans. The beat knocks. She has some metaphors and punchlines in there. It's cool with me.

  • Coy little wink

    3 roses is not back with a vengeance...good luck Charo...

    Everybody cooling their heels allowed Cardi to kick the damn door off the hinges ?

  • stav

    Sorry not sorry, that snippet up above is better than anything I ever heard Minaj spit, IJS!

  • Ridingfinest

    I believe that.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I wish Eve wasn't over there trying to chill acting like a poodle not a pitbull. After her grammy with Gwen she got all Grey Poupon on our azz.

  • Kayke

    One man can't give a grown woman a complex....he spoke to something she already felt inside herself. I bet her father is absent.

  • MzKeriBabee

    I miss this Lil Kim... :(

  • Ms..N

    He can if he says it in a song that's been heard by millions of people.

  • HalleMerry


  • Mia Said so

    She married a billionaire. She choking really hard.

  • Mia Said so

    And waving the 4.4 for real

    Are you guys experiencing ads on the bottom portion of your screen? It's making scrolling unbearable on a mobile platform.

  • NeverSurprised

    It's hard to believe that, in the 21st century, black folks are still BLEACHING THEIR SKIN to look " whiter." She"s lucky that the majority of black people are too dumb to take a stand AGAINST such self-hatred. So long as she recites some elementary school rhymes and throws in the requisite profanities, black people will actually SUPPORT someone who hates her race so much that she has whittled down her nose, bleached her skin and sewn some blonde horsehair on her head, all in a futile attempt to distance herself from her race. Sad.

  • SexyScorpio

    I love it

  • Queen B

    She looks good but she has tortured herself what a shame ?

  • Kayke

    Only to a woman with an already fragile mind state about herself.
    I don't think I'm ugly, never have....and it wouldn't matter who says it, sings it, or writes it....only a hit dog hollers.

  • The Goode Queen

    Tag me when Sandra post a pic of lil Kim. I don't know who this lady is in the picture. ?

  • Queen B

    It was cool she sound like Lil Wayne tho lol

  • Keesh5000
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Weird. In that top picture she looks like a brown version of Kim Zolciak.

  • missarewa

    just a reminder to respect God's work and creation. all of this calling people ugly and look at the best that the surgeons could come up with.

  • sunni_daze

    She has but this is the best she looked in a while. I miss brown Kim

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I miss the old Kim smh. Playa's anthem was the first cassette tape I brought when I was 14. When I saw the video I fell in love with her. Never saw a female rapper that looked so feminine and beautiful. It just hurts my heart to see her now cause she made me fall in love w/ hip hop.

  • The Chosen One

    That song is solo tacky and whack, by Card B. I can't stand it.

  • SandraRose

    She looks good, doesn't she? ?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Nope. I listened to 4.3 seconds and stopped it. If you're going to start rapping, singing, moving like this generation of "artists," game over for you. You're Lil Kim, so a 14 y/o would never buy your music EVER. You can't appeal to them enough to make an impact that equates to millions of $$. She'd be better off ghost writing for another female artists and lease out her swag.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah, black man got her, she's a pitbull in a skirt. White guy get her and she's so demure and pleasant. SMH.

  • 19awesomegrl97

    issa mess

  • 19awesomegrl97


  • Lorenzo Chaps

    or hiding her Bentley.

  • 19awesomegrl97

    yes! drives me nuts!!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Would you buy a song of your mama rapping? That's how kids view the artists from the 90's. They're not buying the old skool artists music like that.

  • 19awesomegrl97

    lol not a poodle tho!!!

  • pecancandy

    Keep THIS makeup artist!

  • SDot

    me toooooo!

  • SDot

    Im mad she did all that to herself too...but I still love her and I like the song.

  • Yetunde

    I feel so sad every time I see her now.

  • KLo

    love it


    From "Thisis50. "

    "The female MC recently interviewed with This Is 50 and clarified the misconception about her husband. “He’s not a billionaire. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Please Jesus,” said Eve to host Young Jack Thriller. "People keep saying it. People will say, oh you married for [money]. And it’s so not like that. Like my dude is comfortable yes. But I still do my own thing.”

  • tintin

    i agree, she looks good here but then again it can be the filters on phones that make everyone look good

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    Rich white men don't play that ratchet "pitbull" ghetto mess... Will put your "animal" acting arse on the curb real quick. That "man" has business partners, family and close friends that would look at him sideways if Eve acted any less than a "poodle" #IJS....?

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    Don't NOBODY remember Tupac calling Kim ugly in "I hit 'em up"??? ???. Ole girl went off the deep end after that..

  • Tee Bullock

    yes queen

  • bemetoo

    Who this woman? This is not Kimberly jones..

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    If you say so. She looks like a plastic blow up doll to me. I liked the way she looked before all the surgery. Its a no for the song too. Im just not liking it.

  • klwbaby

    I remember Tupac saying that and she wanted to get bigger breasts and a face lift but Biggie said u don't need it. But after he died, she started getting surgery.

  • free

    kim, you too old, fat and chopped up for this shyt.

  • The WholeTruth

    No thank you. Rihanna went hard on Lemon for a singer. She would have slayed this track.

  • free

    that's what i said but i made it to 1:13.

  • free

    she needs to hang it up talkimbout "my rooftop got a rooftop".

  • Trace da Ace

    ok...I made it to 1:08 on this and no no no no no no no no!!!!! First off she sounds like a grown azz man. Second she is to short and stumpy to be wearing what she has on ( nice try tho) and whoever directed this should have NOT made her start out in that 1995 "squat" pose from her poster....cause that time has come and gone for Kim and I bet they had to yell " cut" to help get her off that floor!!! #facts. I love me some Kim, but its time for her to get her grown woman on and stop trying to compete with the younger crowd.....just saying. Happy Friday!!

  • Boonella

    I really wanted to like it....I tried to get myself to bob to the music....but least I made it to the two minute mark.....

  • V Dubb

    All you need to take a break from is cuttin on ya face!!! Sat down!!

  • V Dubb


  • Urbn distinction

    Yes that makeup artist brought her to life !! That makeup is flawlessss

  • MythCalledLove

    It's so sad how she felt the need to do this to her face. Before the surgery she was pretty. I use to think she changed her appearance for Biggie. She didn't think she was pretty and if she was changing her look to feel attractive. She picked the wrong thing. You can hv all the surgery to change your looks. But if your heart & mind are broken they tend to fight against each other. Your heart is broken and you hv no self-esteem. Usually they will choose their appearance. Then you keep doing it trying to get it. She was broken and she needed to address the self doubt.

  • rere

    Well keep the damn filter???

  • Dr. P

    She's so out of breath, bless her plastic sucks...

  • Dr. P

    She looks just like Renee from Mob Wives...

  • ?E?E?M?A

    She stole this entire rapping flow from a rapper called Phresher and the song is called Wait a minute. The hook is the same and the heavy breath he uses is identical. He should sue her face shifting ass for stealing his song.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Aww! Hey lil brother!

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    She need to go back to black....smh!

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    its ok, she is wack at it

  • RealATLPeach36

    OMG Kim you look pretty again??

  • Indigo

    24/7 Star
    Gosh time flies

  • KarmaBackAround

    Love la bella..but u dont look the same and ur flow is still the same..????

  • Not Down With The BS

    Nope! She looks horrible and that auto-tuned song is wack. She'd make more money just touring off of her old songs. Biggie was her best ghostwriter.

  • cheechee1x1

    No thanks! another rapper rapping about materialism. The voice is a no for me.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    Yeah she’ll pop up to do a barbershop movie every now and then for kicks and giggles but she is madd retired.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Issa NO for me. I only understood about 30% of what she was saying and of that only 1% was of anything.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Cut! Someone help Kim off the floor!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    America’s first female Trans Asian rapper?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Hard to tell in black and white filming. But she was nicely camouflaged lol

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    But Kim “felt” that she was really an Asian trapped in a black womans body. Would we call that Trans Asian?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Looks like she only kept one side of her nostrils now.

  • Chuck

    Kim’s lyrics used to be clear.. I can barely understand wtf she’s saying.. too much auto tune, and the Lil Kim that I remember clearly didn’t need phucking auto tune. In addition to her horrible singing, she looks atrocious.

  • Crazy tee

    I get what your saying but this young music is garbage to me...can't even hear half of it...well if this is her focus I wish her luck

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I completely agree. I can't make out half of what they're saying so I finally accepted I'm old and just keep my car radio tuned to oldies (90's+).

  • Coy little wink

    The beat is hypnotic. Its just like I'm bad by LL with cuss words ?

  • Guest©

    Still bleaching?!? I thought black folks didn't start bleaching til the 21 century (outside of celebrities that is).

  • Berry Melon

    Too much auto tune. But that's what everyone else does, so meh. She even does her classic pose at the end - nostalgia.

  • Benjamin

    That's true.

  • kennedy campbell

    it's still out there..just not mainstream

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    I like it.

  • Noirluv45

    It's too bad that it's been replaced and that it's no longer mainstream.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Interesting. It's nice to see her recording. However...

    Lil Kim never followed the "flow of the week". Somewhat indecipherable lyrics, run on chorus and bridge. She should have come out hard in her on Lil Kim style and maybe followed up with this style just to show she could. Maybe she's not concerned with her old fan base and wants the new fans that will forget about the song in a week or so...

    Dunno, I give it 2.5 stars

  • SDot

    Me too!

  • SDot

    How are you too old to do your craft?

  • free

    too old to be talking bout the same shyt she was talking bout 20 years ago.

  • SDot

    I hear ya but know they all do it. All. It’s just it’s ok for those we care for. But I hear ya ?

  • SDot

    Now I agree. I like her as an artist but her face and body omfg. Ugh

  • Trace da Ace


  • Blue


  • Jussjess25

    Why hasnt auntie talked about tamars divorce? We knew its been coming but whats the tea.
