Lil’ Kim Shows Love for Money and Auto-Tune on New Single
Lil’ Kim hasn’t released a studio album since 2005, the same year she went to prison for committing perjury, but the pint-size Brooklyn MC hasn’t lost sight of the superstar lifestyle.
On ‘Spend a Mill,’ a new single she debuted last week on DJ Absolut’s Hot 97 radio show, the Queen Bee sends a message to all prospective paramours: If you want her love, you’d better have some deep pockets.
“You know I love stones/ No I don’t mean zodiac,” Kim raps, making heavy use of Auto-Tune, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend/ Where my homies at?”
“You ain’t seen nothing ’til you spend a million bucks,” she says at the chorus, adding, “You ain’t ballin’ nothing ’til you pull out the cash and splurge on my ass.”
It’s unclear whether the track will appear on Kim’s long-awaited fifth album, the follow-up to her Nicki Minaj-dissing ‘Black Friday’ mixtape, which dropped in February.
