Lil’ Kim goes the classic 50 Cent route by putting her own flavor on popular cuts of the moment. Plies “Fountain Blue,” OT Genasis’ “Cut It” and Drake’s “Summer 16” get the “Beemix” treatment on her new mixtape, “Lil’ Kim Season.”
“It always seems like it’s a time every year when everyone’s either playing my music or paying homage with some of my most iconic looks,” she says in a recent interview with Billboard.com. ” The other day, Kylie Jenner posted a picture of me and it was about my whole look of different colored hair, and she was like, “Oh my goodness, I love her,” that kind of thing. Just a month before that, Solange threw a “Crush on You” ball where she had people come and they had to dress like me…I go on the Internet, I see Taraji P. Henson performing the whole “Benjamins” [verse], and I see La La Anthony performing one of my other songs, “Get Money,” I think it was. It sometimes just feels like Lil’ Kim season, and this mixtape is going to be an advertisement [for that]. We’re painting everything up right now.”
