Over Twenty years ago, Lil Kim changed the game with her debut album, Hard Core. Now she reflects on the project that made her a superstar.
Lil Kim lives up to everything that the word “hard core” stands for, including the sexually explicit nature, which is why the word was a fitting choice to title her debut album, Hard Core
Coming up under the tutelage of The Notorious B.I.G., Kim reminded everyone it was ladies night, every night. She took sex talk to a new level on the Jay Z-assisted banger “Big Momma Thang” (“I used to be scared of the dick, now I throw lips to the shit/Handle it like a real bitch”), took famous dudes to bed on “Dreams” (“Babyface can pay the rent and cook me five meals/But momma got the whip appeal”) and warned that she shouldn’t be messed with on “Fuck You” (“Ain’t scared to bust my pistol, sippin’ hard on Cristal”). Remember, she had no time for fake ones.
