I don't know why this makes me laugh so much, but Lil Kim calling Nicki Minaj a "stupid hoe" was extremely, extremely funny to me. It's like Kimmy is almost being vindicated or something after Nicki's terrible performance from the Grammy's. Sure, I think their beef, that Nicki Minaj is largely responsible for continuing, is stupid, but homegirl kind of walked into that one, making that terrible song called "Stupid Hoe" with the terrible video that was later banned by BET. Ah, the irony. Spotted at HHNM

I use the term "hot mess" freely, and more oftentimes than not, endearingly, mostly because it's such an all encompassing term. In other words, I use it both positively and negatively. Plus, it works well with the whole name of my blog and all. Case in point, that hood Harry Potter post is a hot mess...in a good way. One of the funniest things I've seen this year. I love it...a lot. Anyway, here's my list of the 13 Hottest Hot Messes of 2011. See this increasing list size as I go? Yeah? 13. Lil B is falls under the affectionate definition of "hot mess." As positive, loving to his fans, and appreciative of his cat, as he is...he's still kind of a hot mess. But, he's the Based God. Arguably, Lil B's verse from "Grove St Party" on Weezy's Sorry 4 The Wait could have occupied this list spot. Or Sorry 4 The Wait could have. But, Lil B is not the Based God for nothing. Thank you, Based God. 12. Gucci Mane was sentenced to 6 months in prison in September for pushing a woman out of a moving vehicle, after he had mistaken her for a prostitute, and she wasn't. Of course, it's completely natural and normal to be picked up in the morning, asking if you want to go to breakfast. Um, no. She should get her own number in this Hot Mess list. 11. If you thought Gucci was bad, TI probably set the record in returning to prison. He was released from prison, and picked up by a luxury ...
Real talk, if I had a choice, I'd much rather run into Nicki Minaj than Lil Kim in a dark, back alley. Kimmy doesn't play around. Anyway, Lil Kim raps over Uncle Murda's "Warning" is responding to that YMCMB song "Y.U. Mad" that dropped like a month ago. I just listened to "Y.U. Mad" for the first time after hearing Kimmy's response, and it's alright. It's pretty unmemorable, but would be a nice addition to my workout mix. You know how I feel about people using letters instead of writing out the whole word: that shit makes me uncomfortable. I bet Birdman is responsible for that grammatical atrocity. Y U can't write words out, Birdman? Kim's response is more amusing than that half acronym of a song. Not only is she super blunt, which I love that, but she makes some valid points: “This Lil’ Kim clone/ Ooh I can’t do it/ Seen this bitch on the awards/ Ooh she look stupid” “Me and Wayne got on the same jeans/ Ooh something wrong” “Ni**as rappin’ like Baby/ Ooh that mean they trash” “Lookin’ at Mark Zuckerberg like ooh, he could get it” Not sure about the Mark Zuckerberg fascination, but everything else Kimmy Blanco says makes sense. Unlike Birdman, I can actually understand what she's saying. She's probably referencing that stuffed animal outfit Nicki wore to the VMA's (Exhibit A) and then Weezy's jeggings from that very night (Exhibit B). And Birdman's rapping...yeah. The only thing he has going for him in that arena is the #BirdmanHandRub. Spotted at Rap-Up
I feel weird saying this, since I've been ridiculing Lil Kim for this entire Black Friday fiasco, but the mixtape isn't that bad. The whole premise, however, is a little more than absurd. I guess I might as well compare it to Pink Friday, since that's the reason she made it in the first place. Both of them have approximately 0% replay value to me, but at least in Black Friday, she's making less weird voices than Nicki makes in Pink Friday. But on the whole, it's just absurd, and I think Black Friday would have made more sense if it was just the instrumentals from Pink Friday.The absurdity starts immediately with the Intro, with the singing about the queen, and then it segue ways into "Pissin On Em," her version of Nicki's "Did It On Em," complete with her making all those bodily function sound effects. Her version of "Hustle Hard" wasn't terrible, either, and she was kind of funny ("same old shit, just a different toilet").I found a fair amount of her songs to be ironic, but I don't know if that was intended. The 4 foot tall Kimmy Blanco rapping over "6 Foot 7 Foot" ("6 Foot Tall," but who really cares about being grammatically correct?) and then "Do The Kimmy," where she's rapping about how she's lighter than a frisbee. By the way, my ears have still not forgiven me for my assault on them with Pill and Kim's versions of this trainwreck song. Furthermore, there is the IRS Freestyle over "So Appalled," and it's just funny to me that they're rapping about tax season and "what you going to do when the IRS comes to you? Pay yo money." If ...
On the anniversary of Biggie’s death, Lil Kim speaks on how she thinks the government is up what happened to him and Tupac
Speaking of conspiracy theories...today is the 14th anniversary of Biggie's death. Lil Kim called in to DJ Lady T and talked about both Biggie and Tupac's deaths, and how she thinks that the mystery behind their deaths is deeper than what people think, and that the government is involved. She thinks that both of them could have successfully ran for something like Mayor, like The Governator, and chaos would have ensued or something. You can listen to what she says here.I agree with Kim. I don't think she is crazy...at least about this (Black Friday, on the other hand...). I believe there is something deeper than just the East Coast/best West Coast feud. I know the police are covering their homicides up, but beyond that, I would guess that it had to do with money. Some of the most prominent conspiracy theories tend to center around money, with the artists being too expensive, wanting to leave their respective labels, or gang involvement requiring pay. TruTV has the best background on the circumstances surrounding their deaths, as well as the conspiracy theories and a bibliography. Someone should really ask Big Sean what he thinks about this...So what do you think? It's making my mind spin, trying to think about how different the rap game would be today if Biggie and Tupac were still around. I also wonder how that would have effected Bad Boy Records... What I find especially unfortunate is that, no only are we speculating how different the game would be, but we're also speculating how and why they were murdered. It's just sad.Spotted at AllHipHop
Watching this video is probably equivalent to reading a trashing gossip magazine (guilty), so yes, I might admit that I found Lil Kim's video for "Black Friday" very entertaining. I'm not going to lie, this video isn't that bad (translation: she doesn't look as terrifying in it as she usually does). I could have posted this yesterday, but I've been trying to limit the amount of "hot messes" that I post in one day, and for that matter, the amount of Lil Kim posts I make in one day.The amount of irony found in this one video is unreal. She just makes it too easy for us. She starts with the "Hate Me Now" instrumental (Kim, we get that you hate Nicki, and now everyone is starting to hate you). Then, she's stomping on a dead wig (probably while she's wearing a wig, or at least extensions, and she was the original purveyor of bright colored wigs). And then the Barbie dolls...first of all, why does Kim's doll look white? The ass and wig falls off Nicki's doll...and even IF Nicki's ass is fake (I swear, that's like the 8th wonder of the world), there is no way that anyone could argue, and win, that Kim is less plastic than Nicki.I don't know if Kim thought she was being really clever about the above ironies, but I'm pretty sure that we are all having the last laugh.
I don't think that Kim will ever give this up because she is practically relevant again! Plus, I would guess that she likes the attention way too much, and to be honest, I think the public is eating this fiasco up. I mean, she definitely giving me something to write about, and some laughs as well. Rap Up was lucky enough to score this interview, and as usual, Kim brings 2 parts delusion and 1 part comedy. Brace yourself for some hilarity.Rap Up: You tweeted that you sold 113,000 copies of Black Friday within 28 hours. Is that accurate?Lil Kim: Right now it could be more.Rap Up: What do you say to those who question the authenticity of those figures?Lil Kim: At the end of the day, you’re always going to have your haters. We need the haters. There was actually a representative at PayPal who basically didn’t really confirm or deny it, but also that they’re very happy and proud of the success of Lil’ Kim. I think numbers in other areas speak for themselves. I mean, why aren’t they questioning the Black Friday being at 2.5 in less than 18 hours? Why aren’t they questioning that? What’s the difference? How can you add up one thing and not the other? I just feel like people pick and choose the area that they want to attack .Rap Up: Do you know the current sales numbers?Lil Kim: No, I actually don’t know right now. I have a team that kinda checks up on all that. We’ll keep you posted.Rap Up: Nicki Minaj laughed off your sales claims. Did you see that?Lil Kim: I heard about it. ...
Lil Kim and her Black Friday mixtape are the hot messes to end all hot messes in history. And I'm being objective and unbiased when I say that. Her whole beef with Nicki is just overplayed. Unless I'm mistaken, she got all bent out of shape when Nicki paid homage to her with this picture, and then I guess Nicki justified (thus vaidating?) their beef when she spoke with Angie Martinez about it, which probably sent Kim over the edge (or to the plastic surgeon). Or inspired her to create the very cleverly titled Black Fridat disstape (I just thought of that...never cease to amaze myself). Also, ironically enough, it looks like the cover of Black Friday kind of bites the cover of Pink Friday...so have we come around full circle? Can the beef end?And now Lil Kim is claiming to have moved 113k units in only 28 hours. Lil Kim needs acquaint herself with this decade, and digital downloads. I honestly can't imagine her selling that many units in such a little time period, especially when compared to current album sale trends. I am being completely objective when I say that Lil Kim needs to give up her delusion. The facts are facts, and the only person they're "lying to" is Lil Kim. It's one thing to make me, a relatively unknown blogger, think that she's lying, but now she's making my media heroes Karen Civil and Julia Beverly call her bluffs.In fact, here is what both Karen Civil and Julia Beverly had to say via twitter about Lil Kim supposedly selling 113k copies over PayPal.Karen CivilFor people not familiar with paypal. New business users can ...
As reported last night, Lil Kim is selling her Black Friday mixtape...on PayPal. iTunes didn't even want her! If for some reason you want to buy it, don't expect to get any type of download link because they are mailing the CDs, signed, to you. If she's trying to turn a profit, it doesn't make sense to get all those CDs printed up and then pay for shipping. Nothing about this makes sense.Kimmy is also claiming to have sold 113,000 copies in 28 hours (I guess that means I'm about 112,998 off in my initial estimate at how much she would sell). I don't think there is anyway that that can be true, so I will believe that when I see it. I just don't see how she could possibly sell more copies in 28 hours than most artists can sell in a week. It makes less sense to me than why the Obama administration is pushing for that $53 billion high speed railway project.
Apparently, Lil Kim thinks that she can move a milli units of her Black Friday mixtape for a whopping $9.99 a pop on lilkimfanclub.com. Or at least sell enough (one? two?) of these to actually turn a profit. I am trying to be objective when I wonder who would actually buy this. Plus, she's using some false advertising on the mixtape cover. Honey, we know you haven't looked like that for years, or at least since you've had all that plastic surgery.Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Drake has had the only successful run at selling a mixtape. And his music was bearable! And what's worse is that I think his Grammy-nominated debut album is perpetually on sale for $7.99 at Best Buy.Poor Kimmy, she just needs to...I don't know...not do this.
