The Source February 1997 issue featuring Lil Kim and Foxy Brown
Remember when these two young women were the premier ladies of hip-hop…or rap depending on your personal definition? Their public images seemed to be based solely on their sexual escapades and in the ‘get money’ era of 1997, that’s what sold. Truth be told, I never liked these chicks at all and never bought any their albums. But I did like Lil Kim’s ‘take no shorts’ attitude. She was going to get hers no matter what the cost but sadly, the one thing she really wanted for herself (Biggie) eluded her. Makes you wonder what would have happened if Biggie had married her instead of Faith. And Foxy? I can’t even give her one kind word.
Moving on to the Redman review, does 4 mics really satisfy you? That's a 4.5 mic gem to me. And what about Camp Lo? 3 mics?
