The Case: Determined to rebuild her image, Lil Kim has stayed in the media with little new music on the charts. In 2009, she appeared on the hit show Dancing With the Stars and opened an upscale fashion boutique earlier this year in New York City. Kim is currently working on a fashion line 24/7-Star and a new album.
The Verdict: Kim only managed to release one single last year and shifted her attention to slandering the rising femcee Nicki Minaj in 2010. After citing Nicki’s refusal to pay her homage as the cause for her attacks, Brooklyn’s poster girl used every chance she received to bad mouth Young Money’s first lady. Lacking any real grounds for the barrage of public disses and any clever or witty remarks, Kim might as well and team up with Hammer at this point.
