“I am working on my album. I’m gonna be dropping some singles soon. I’m not concentrated on dropping an album so soon, but I will be dropping singles.”

Kim also revealed to Hollywood.TV that she’s been working with an onslaught of artists and producers including Keri Hilson and Polow Da Don. She also adds that she’s the latest artist to lend vocals to Dr. Dre’s long awiaited Detox album.

As previously reported Detox was supposed to land in stores in the fall of 2005 but has been delayed as Dre continues to work as a producer and as an entrepreneur with his “Beats By Dre” headphones.

Speaking on Detox and working with Polow and Keri, Kim says,

“I’m doing a collaboration right now in the studio with Keri Hilson…I’m so excited! So you might be hearing that song really soon. Shout out to Polow. I love you Polow. ‘Cause he did the track, Polow Da Don…I’m gonna be working with a lot of great people on my album. Timbaland is someone I’m really close with…I’m on Dr. Dre’s Detox album. I’m really excited about that one!”

“I’m constantly growing, my album came out in ’97 but I started doing music in the early ‘90s,” she said. “One reason that I’m still here and I’m still relevant to this day – probably even more relevant than a lot of new people who come into the industry – is because I know how to reinvent myself, I know how to change with the times.”

The 34-year-old discussed how the industry has changed since she first released music.

“I think that, no matter who you are these days; you could be young, you could be old, you could be new, you could be an artist that’s been in the industry for a minute, I think it’s all about a hot record these days, it’s different,” she claimed.

“I think that’s the only difference I could point out, you know, you could have a hot song back in the day but it may not break through. But now if you have a hot song – it doesn’t have to have a lot of thought behind it, it doesn’t have to be a deep record.

“You don’t even have to be very talented as long as you come up with something that’s catchy and, you know, something that is now.”

Diddy: I want to say I love Lil Kim man and I’m sorry that she’s mad. I never would have thought by me working with another artist that she would take it the wrong way but if she’s taking it the wrong way, it ain’t meant like that. Nicki has never did anything to her. She ain’t never not pay her homage. She ain’t swagger jack and say nothing negative about her. I think Kim needs to understand that Nicki as a whole, it’s always been respect. Nicki isn’t trying to be her. We still riding with Nicki and we still riding with Kim. We love and respect the days in history that we’ve had with Lil Kim but Kim is going to be an emcee. When emcees come back out, they talk crazy and do what they do but at the end of the day everyone respects Kim for being the Queen B… Anybody that comes after Kim, or me, or Jay or whatever, people get inspired. It’s nothing wrong with her being inspired as long as she takes that inspiration and carves out her own lane. If we do ever manage her, we’ll make sure she carves out that own lane.

“For the last year she has been subliminally taken shots at me. Subliminally taken shots at the other girls in the industry. I mean come on, we read that interview where she said “Being that the other rap chicks in the game ain’t got sh*t to do right now, when I’m by the pool they can feed me grapes”. I remember that sh*t, I keep my ears to the street at all the time. Just because I do my Hollywood thing and you know my Malibu Barbie thing don’t mean my ear isn’t to the streets at all time. The last thing she did that was very subliminal “Did I kill the Queen?” and Puffy sitting right next to her riding with that bullsh*t?” Come on! We ain’t stupid.

Let’s go all the way back when when she first came out and was doing all of my songs over. There was certain interviews that she was doing and my fans got upset because she was busting shots at me. Actually she was throwing pebbles. It was nothing. I was blowing them out my face like flies. She said some sh*t on twitter like “Oh f*ck all you Lil Kim fans. Nicki Minaj is the sh*t right now”. I still let that ride

So a little while goes by, I see her at the Lil Wayne concert and I show her love. She sitting here saying she showed me love, I showed her love. She reciprocated it but it was a little war on her behalf. A little obnoxious but whatever. Now from that time on right, I would go on the internet and see little pebbles thrown my way. Anybody that’s in the hip hop industry, we know how this game goes. We know the sh*t she was saying was subliminal, we know it’s a competitive sport and little people are going to try to claim their spot.

My thing was, homegirl got a nice little buzz going. It’s obvious I’m who she wants to be like. It’s obvious that she likes me and wants to be like me but she’s not paying this homage.

Lil Kim has teamed up with Three Olive Vodka to debut their new purple vodka. With Kim signing to Jay-z’s Roc Nation and all this Nicki Minaj beef, it’s safe to say she is pulling out all the guns with the safety off. In a recent interview, Lil Kim refers to herself as a brand…

YRB: Lil’ Kim has become a brand, and you’ve pretty much transcended Hip-Hop. Was that something you predicted back when you first picked up a mic?

Lil’ Kim: Well, I always knew that I was different. I always knew that I wasn’t going to come into the industry and just be labeled as a “female rapper.” I never even saw myself as just a female rapper, because I know that one thing I do very well is entertain. My mama always told me that, ever since I was a little girl. I would put on her shoes and put on her lipstick and stand in front of the mirror with my brush singing. I always knew that when I came into the industry I would elevate. I didn’t know a lot of the things that came to me would come. I thank God for it; I feel blessed. I can only be myself and do what I do the best. So yeah if that means something as wonderful and gracious as Three Olives Vodka comes my way, I’m gonna jump on it because that’s the direction I want to go in. I want to be universal, and that’s the one thing I feel also about Three Olives vodka is that everyone can enjoy it. Except for those who can’t drink… under 18 [Laughs].

“I don’t give a f*ck what Lil’ Kim or nobody else talkin about, you’re tha baddest chick to ever run this sh*t!… I respect you too much, so I’m not gonna call you the baddest B*TCH in the game, I’m gonna say you’re the baddest WOMAN in the game.” After Drake dissed Lil’ Kim, Nicki turned around laughing, then came back and hugged him. He told her “I love you.” Then he left the stage.

Last night at her NY concert, Lil Kim was performing and was said to be ALL OVER Ray-J. Brandy’s little brother obviously has her back… because the little man-whore decided to call out Nicki Minaj with Kim backing him up.

NICKI MINAJ VS. LIL KIM

Rumors are swirling that a reported Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim beef is brewing especially after a recent Queen Bee concert.

Lil Kim performed in Buffalo, New York Wednesday and got tongues wagging when she took off one of her trademark wigs and said,

“I’m going to another level. I love the wigs and everything but I’m so above this. I’m so above this…I’ll be back!”

While it’s debatable whether that was a subliminal diss to Minaj, Nicki’s response was more direct. She took to her Twitter around the time the video started circulating to say,

“Raise ya hand if u don’t have 2 diss ppl to feel better about urself. Jealousy is a disease. It kills @ a fast pace. Kisses 2 my bad b*tches.”

 

As previously reported Kim tried her hand at a remake of Waka Flocka Flame’s “O Let’s Do It” and previously released tracks to the net including “Pu**y  Purr” and “Sex Toy”

Now according to HipHopBeef, Kimmie’s the newest addition to Jay-Z who will executive produce her album.

An official statement on her new signing is expected to be announced this week.
