Lil-Kim-HotShot-Barbie

Diary Of Kimberly Jones (June/July 2011 Sex Issue Feature) (Pg. 9)

 

Smith: Once you do one thing, you think, Maybe I can tweak something else. You go for a consultation and the doctor starts pointing out other things he can fix that you didn’t even notice before... Her attitude is: If that’s what makes a person feel good, then I don’t see what the big deal is.

Rayce Denton (TV producer): I heard her talking about not liking her look. I told her we should have her plastic surgeon on her reality show [Countdown to Lockdown]. It was obvious she had surgery. Why not tell that story? She wasn’t having it. She doesn’t say she’s had plastic surgery. She just says her look has changed.

Hector Xtravaganza: She needs someone to tell her, “Bitch, what are you doing?” You need someone to say you look crazy.

Dopwell: I’d be like, “Kim, if you go back and do one more thing on your nose, we gon’ have to change your name.” And we’d start laughing. I know she was just doing it because she had to, but I’d make jokes to try to make her feel better.

Jackson: I love the old Kim. I love “Player’s Anthem” Kim. She learned a lot by experience. I don’t know what lesson you learn from that.

D-Dot: I met Nicki Minaj before she got with Young Money, after Kim came home. It was sort of like déjà vu. Nicki was humble, aggressive. She was cute. Had a crazy body. So I reached out to Kim. I said, “I think this chick Nicki should be your protégée. This is going to be the next chick.” Kim had this record that never came out. I told Nicki to get on the record so I could send it to Kim, because I felt like Kim could introduce her to the world. Nicki recorded the verse with me. She even shouted-out Kim’s name. I sent it to Kim and her people were kind of like, “Ehh.” They were aware of who this girl was, and they chose not to acknowledge it. Nicki was 100 percent on board with acknowledging Kim’s greatness.

York: Kim was 4’11” with a butt and no boobs and went to the fashion world like she was 6-feet tall. She was hanging with Sofia Coppola. She was signed to Wilhelmina. She had Candie’s and M.A.C deals. I see Nicki Minaj? It’s a clone.

Prodigy: Kim is right up there near No. 1. People think Nicki Minaj has that spot right now. But you can’t talk about who is hot right now. You have to look at who has had a groundbreaking career.

Jadakiss (rapper, formerly on Bad Boy): If there’s a hall of fame for rap, she’s definitely in there. Not even for females, but just hip-hop in general.

Storch: I’ve watched so many MCs try to emulate her. I’m not naming names. You have to have your own style. She’ll always have that.

Dopwell: A lot of girls were running around saying they don’t do this and that. But when they got a whiff of Kim, everybody was running around sucking dick [laughs]. She made females come out of that shell. I think she really made females feel beautiful.

Producer J. White Defends Iggy Azalea Amidst 'Copied Beat' Claims

The Internet has been comparing the beat of Iggy Azalea’s latest song “Sally Walker” to that of another female rapper's hit- Cardi B’s “Money.” J. White Did It, who is famous for producing hits for both MCs including the aforementioned tracks, chimed in on the endless comparisons. “Iggy Azalea really went in studio and said to producers, 'You heard that Cardi record Money yea make me one too,'" one Twitter user wrote, to which the producer commented, “Actually that’s false.” Many sided with the Grammy-nominated producer, adding that the beat wasn’t stolen considering J. White made both of the songs. “My heart hurts that y’all people are so idiot [sic],” another wrote. “SAME PRODUCER. SAME PRODUCER CANT STEAL HIS OWN BEAT. Y’all people are dumb or what?” Azalea congratulated Cardi on her Grammy Award win for Best Rap Album back in February, writing “Super happy to see a female rapper win a Grammy, you dominated 2018 girl & @JWhiteDidIT congratulations to you too!” There certainly isn’t any beef between the two, so let’s not start any. “Sally Walker” has been getting favorable reviews since its release last week (Mar. 14). Its funeral-style video has over 20 million views as of press time. Take a look and listen below.

Maxine Waters Comments On College Admissions Scandal

In light of the recent college admissions scandal where affluent families were caught administering bribes for their children to get into specific colleges, Maxine Waters shared her opinion on this example of wealth and privilege.

“I am heartbroken and disgusted by the lying and cheating of the ultra-rich parents," Waters said. "And their allies who orchestrated an egregious college admissions scheme and robbed highly qualified students of the opportunity to attend elite universities."

The U.S. representative went on to celebrate the investigation that led to the discovery of more than $25 million dollars between 2011 to 2018 paid to William Rick Singer, a college admissions counselor who reportedly misrepresented students by forging standardized tests and a student's athletic abilities.

"I applaud the work of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, federal prosecutors, and the nearly 200 federal agents nationwide who exposed the lies and toxic privilege leveraged by wealthy elites to buy their children admittance into selective colleges," Waters continued.

The California rep went on to offer her support to minority students who experience discrimination during their application process. The 80-year-old congresswoman promised to one day make education accessible for all.

“There should be no toll or tax on one’s path to success besides hard work. I stand with students across this country—particularly those from minority, low-income, and rural communities—who have been unfairly denied admission to elite universities as well as the students who have filed a class action lawsuit against the schools named by federal prosecutors. I will not stop until we have an education system that is accessible, affordable, and equitable for all—not some.”

The "Everybody Dies" rapper's bloody teaser track serves as the first look into the album's vibe, accompanying a haunting new video where Logic is seen bleeding out from a neck injury as he raps, smokes and loads a gun. The track, which urges listeners to put their "ego on the shelf," is a lyrical experience that comments on drug use, suicide, depression, and the expectation from others that ruin one's self-esteem.
