Lil Kim aka Queen Bey is rocking all black on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Out Magazine.
Inside Kimmy opens up on the legal issues that have stopped her from dropping a new album, her relationship with Diddy and why she will never do reality television.
Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:
On why it’s taking so long for her to drop a new album:
It really wasn’t about taking my time — I had legality situations where legally I could not record because I was in situations where I couldn’t.
Being so behind the scenes and taking on this boss lady role, I’ve come to know that you don’t announce your album. They can definitely look forward to singles from me this summer, for sure. But the album will come as soon as it’s ready and the time is right.
On her complicated relationship with Diddy:
Puffy called me one day and he tracked me down through some people I knew,” she says of how this latest endeavor together came about. “[He said] ‘No matter what, you’re going to always be my sister.’ We always go through things like that. At the end of the day, we’re tied to each other through B.I.G.’s estate and B.I.G.’s iconic, historic legacy.
On if she’ll ever do reality television:
I never say ‘never,’ but I don’t look at television shows or reality shows and say ‘I want to be on this show. Not really. I’m more so into just watching them for entertainment purposes.
On her music career:
I just think that my fans not even just my fans, but even potentially new fans — are ready to hear some new Lil’ Kim music and everyone knows that … I put a lot of my reality into my music [that] people can identify with. People are ready to hear real rap — real s— coming from a female. Because I’ve always been different, no matter what. My music has always been very sexual and very pro-women. Now I get to do that through my new artists. I have my label coming out, which makes me very driven.
On having any regrets so far from the industry:
I’m pretty sure everybody in the industry — and in life, period — has things that they feel like they would do over, but I don’t really regret much in my life,” she claims. “There are certain things that I would do over — and certain things that I would do differently. [But] the things that I go through and the things that I’ve gone through have become a major part of who I am today.
