It's been over a year since we first heard about Lil' Kim's plans to debut new material. Now the wait is over as the Queen Bee finally shares a release date for her forthcoming mixtape.

'Hard Core 2K14' is set to drop on Sept. 14. This is the follow-up to 2011's 'Black Friday.'

Lil' Kim announced the project in July last year. While the tape was slated to arrive on Halloween 2013, it was delayed a number of times.

Fans might be skeptical about the release, thinking 'Hard Core' will get pushed back again. However, Kim's been tweeting a lot about it and even announced an upcoming tour to support the mixtape. In addition, she has also released remixes for Beyonce's 'Flawless,' Bobby Shmurda's 'Hot N----' and let's not forget the Nicki Minaj diss track,'Identity Theft.'

So be sure to mark your calendars.
