Cardi B plans to have Lil’ Kim on her forthcoming sophomore album.
Cardi B: “I Want Lil Kim on My Album”
The Bronx native is currently working on the follow-up to her 2018 debut LP ‘Invasion of Privacy’,
In newly 1-hour interview with Hot 97 Ness Nitty, the “WAP” rapper revealed she’s got a few track in mind for a possible Lil’ Kim collaboration in the near future. After addressing her decision to push back the follow-up to Invasion of Privacy, she revealed she wants to make sure that it’s a big moment not just for her, but for Kim, too.
“I even hit her up, I want Lil’ Kim on my album,” she said at the 15:00 point of the interview above. “I do have a song that I think, ‘Aight she’s good for it,’ but then I’m also debating on another song. Because I kinda want her on this one, too. What I really wanted to do was like an ‘Aunt Dot’ with her. … But then I’m kinda debating, is that gonna be like a little bit outdated? How’s it gonna be? … I just want the song I do with her, I want it to be like a super, like, great comeback. I just don’t want to put her on my album on a song and it’s like, ‘Cool, yeah, she had a Lil’ Kim feature.’ I want this to be like her insane…her moment.”

Cardi B just dropped her first single in a year and a half, titled “Hot Shit,” on Friday (July 1), and features Kanye West and Lil Durk.
Cardi announced the collaborative track on social media this week, revealing she had been sitting on the single for about three years. “I think this record is actually older than ‘WAP,’” she said on Twitter Spaces. “It is everyone’s favorite.”
More recently, Cardi teamed up with fellow Bronx rappers Kay Flock and Dougie B for their April song ‘Shake It’.
