So who is this bumblebee? Why, it’s Royal Reign, the daughter of the original queen bee, Lil Kim! The rapper stepped out for Halloween festivities with her little one (who will be five months old this month) and they both wore matching costumes. Not only am I loving little Royal’s look, but is she not giving the cutest side-eye ever?
Royal Reign was born on June 9 and ever since then, the MC has been gushing over her little lady. As Lil Kim told Ray J and Erica Mena while visiting “106 & Park” recently, “It was the most expensive gift God has ever given me. And the most beautiful gift God has ever given me.”
Check out more adorable images of mother and daughter celebrating Royal’s first Halloween!

Lil Kim, Missy Elliott And Da Brat Will Reunite To Perform “Ladies Night Remix” At The Soul Train Awards
If you’re a big fan of the “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix),” you’ll be happy to know that Lil Kim, Missy Elliott and Da Brat will come together during November’s Soul Train Awards to perform the classic jam. The performance will be part of a tribute to Kool & The Gang, as the remix samples the soul/funk group’s “Ladies’ Night.” Kool & The Gang are being honored with a Legend Award and will be recognized by not only Lil Kim, Missy and Da Brat, but singer Joe as well.
“Ladies Night Remix” also featured the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Angie Martinez, but it’s unclear whether or not Martinez will be a part of the performance.
If you’re interested in checking out what should be an epic performance, you can tune in to the Soul Train Awards on November 30, which will air on both Centric and BET at 8 p.m. Wendy Williams is set to be the host (and that will be interesting considering that Lil Kim and Martinez both have had issues with Williams in the past).
Anywho, until November 30, you can check out a classic performance of all five of the women doing the song at the MTV VMAs in 1997.
Happy Fun Friday!!!!! From myself and Royal Reign!!!!! #royalreign #lilkim #queenbee #lilbee
Warning, looking at photos of Lil Kim’s daughter will give you severe baby fever!
The rapper posted two adorable pictures of her 4-month old daughter Royal Reign on social media this past week. The posts were a treat for Lil Kim fans since she rarely post pictures of her beautiful baby girl.
The Queen Bee called motherhood “the most expensive gift God has ever given me and the most beautiful gift God has ever given me,” during an interview with 106 & Park back in September.
Lil Kim surprised us all when she first revealed she was pregnant earlier this year. The rapper mentioned she was expecting a child with fellow rapper, Mr. Papers. The couple welcomed Reign to their world on June 9th, 2014.
Look at my little princess face!!! Royal Reign #royalreign #lilkim
The tension between Lil’ Kim and Faith Evans is well documented and dates back to the 90s when Biggie Smalls was still alive. However, it appears that Faith has been ready to bury the hatchet for quite some time. In fact, she says that she tried to record a song with Kim several years ago.
“I actually have tried to [record a song with Kim] in the past,” Faith told The Breakfast Club.
It also seems that she would still be open to doing a song with Kim under the right circumstances.
“I would if it was the right song, for sure. My ex-husband actually was trying to make it happen. I think this was around the time she [Kim] was dating Scott Storch. I don’t really remember what happened.”
Bizarrely, although Faith seems to have washed her hands of her throwback feud with Kim, it doesn’t appear that Kim is ready to make amends. According to the “Love Like This” singer, the last time she saw Kim, she was serving major shade.
“The last time I saw her, actually was a few years ago at Puff’s white party. This was maybe like five years ago and I congratulated her on her ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ this was around that time. But she asked me, ‘Who was I?’ But I mean, you know — it’s all good.”
Ouch. We won’t sit around holding our breath waiting for that Faith/Kim collaboration, but it’s nice to see that Faith is able to let go of the past and move forward in a positive way. Speaking of Kim, when asked how she felt about the Brooklyn rapper speaking openly about her sexual relationship with Big, Faith explained why it doesn’t bother her.
“No, it doesn’t bother me. I know that they were, you know, getting it in. I mean, it probably bothered me when I first found out just because I didn’t know anything about it. When Big died, all of that stuff, to me, was really over. I’d never hold on to any grudges over him if he’s not even here.”
Watch Faith’s interview below.
This past Saturday, Lil Kim was paid $23,000 to perform at The Manor nightclub in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her appearance was supposed to include a VIP meet-and-greet, but the Manor nightclub says Lil Kim came to their venue late and skipped the meet-and-greet session. Therefore, the nightclub had to issue refunds. Lil Kim, however, took it to Twitter to refute their claims. She tweeted:
Fort Lauderdale. I love y’all so much. Shit was LIT 2night!!! Please get ur $$$ back from the club. I never knew about a meet n greet.
— Lil’ Kim (@LilKim) October 5, 2014
The Manor’s website has several fliers that advertise a $75 pre-sale tickets to participate in the meet-and-greet:
The nightclub also posted this contract between them and Lil Kim on their Facebook page , with the caption:
The Manor’s Owners and Staff would like to thank our customers and supporters for joining us to celebrate our fifth anniversary last night. Unfortunately due to acts beyond our control the “Meet & Greet” never happened. Due to upcoming litigation, per our attorneys, we are unable to get into further details about last nights events. The contract is posted for our customers to come to their own conclusions. Everyone who purchased tickets for the “Meet & Greet” has been FULLY Refunded for their troubles. Thank you for your loyal support.
The Manor’s attorney Howard King reported to TMZ (via The Daily Mail) that there will be a lawsuit will be drafted because of this financial ordeal. and Lil Kim may have come face-to-face with karma as she was booed by patrons when she departed from the nightclub.
There are just so many people K Michelle has fallen out with. Sooo many people. From all of her cast mates on “Love and Hip Hop,” to her ex, to Elle Varner and just about anybody else. K Michelle has a problem with just about everybody. Generational beefs, including one with Lil Kim.
The two got into on it on Twitter about a month ago when Beyoncé’s “Flawless” remix came out and K Michelle agreed that Nicki was the Queen of Rap. Of course Lil Kim’s fans came for her, calling her disrespectful and Lil Kim agreed with them.
But apparently, they have more issues.
Which is kind of sad, considering K Michelle is a well-documented fan of Lil Kim and even alleged that the two had gotten so close Lil Kim almost made her the godmother of her child.
Well, Lil Kim stopped by the Breakfast Club to clear all of that up. Here’s what she had to say about K Michelle.
That chick is a bag of pecans. Like, a trail mix. You know when you eating a trail mix and the nuts that you like, you eat and the ones that you can’t stand, you put back in the bag. She’s the bag of nuts that you put back. Like a black jelly bean. She is so nuts, you are liable to see her skipping. Who skips?
Why would I ever make her my child’s godmother? I’ve only met this woman one time, one time in person! We talked on the phone after that because she’s a fan of mine. I appreciate that. Anybody shows me love, I’m going to show them major love back.
We never had a conversation about her being my child’s godmother. I don’t know you. Why would I do that?
The chick is sour because she’s a huge fan of mine. Everybody knows that. She’s been bitter and sour because you guys had 105 Power last year. I performed with Kendrick. I was supposed to perform with K. Michelle but the sprinter got lost. It just never happened and she was sh*tty, sour, pissed.
There you have it. K Michelle’s mad. Lil Kim is over it.
You can watch Lil Kim’s full interview, where she speaks mostly about Nicki Minaj, in the video below.
Lil Kim is devoted to keeping Biggie’s memory alive. In fact, she says that she visits him in spirit everyday.
“I visit his spirit everyday and this week is the 20th anniversary of Ready To Die, so yeah, it’s a pretty amazing thing,” the new mom tells Hello Beautiful. “You know the crazy thing is when I was recording this ‘Hard Core’ mixtape? I felt BIG’s spirit in a lot of the songs I was doing.
The ‘Gotti’ record, I felt his spirit a little. Even when I was doing ‘Whenever You See Me,’ ‘Trendsetter,’ when I was recording those songs, I felt his spirit and I definitely feel like he was with me with this project.”
The 40-year-old also addressed rumors that her deceased mentor and lover used to write her rhymes.
“Well, I look at it like this, after Biggie died, I had hit after hit after hit. So, I guess that answers the question. Anybody who has written with me in the studio knows I get busy. I wrote a whole song with Swizz Beatz, I wrote a whole song in front of B.Hot. I write in front of people, so that’s a joke to me.
It makes me laugh. I love writing with people. That’s something we’ve always done in ciphers. We rapped with each other and that was something that was always fun. I’ve also written for P.Diddy. if you look on the “No Way Out” album, I have credit on a song that I’m not even on. So, let’s just be real.”
It’s interesting that this is still something she has to defend so many years after his death.
Last month, K. Michelle and Lil’ Kim had it out on Twitter after Kim felt slighted by K supporting Nicki Minaj for her VMA performance (You can check out a full transcript of their showdown here). During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, K explained that she never intended to offend the Brooklyn rapper with her comments. But y’all know K has never been one to back down, so they’re still at odds.
“I’m not stunting that lady,” K said of Kim. “I was in the studio and I’m looking at Nicki like, ‘It’s a Black girl at the VMAs. She up there and three and four times. She’s always been nice to me.’ I like Nicki Minaj. Shoot me. I tweeted and said: ‘Yes, Nicki! The Queen Of Rap.’ I wasn’t offending anybody. I ain’t got nothing to do with [their beef].”
She went on to say that Kim definitely could’ve addressed her privately if she felt slighted by her tweet.
“Kim has my number. You’ve even talked about me being the god mother to your daughter. You have my number. You know how to talk to me.”
But Kim wasn’t the only one K had to face because of her support of Nicki. Kim’s fans actually went after her first.
“Her fans immediately began attacking me, talking about my child and everything. So me being me and being in my zone, I was real belligerent. I went and tweeted, ‘F*ck all you Lil’ Kim fans goddamnit. You motherf*ck*rs aren’t going to tell me what to say.’ I like both of them. That’s what I said in the tweet. I didn’t say, ‘F*ck all you Lil’ Kim fans and f*ck Kim. I said, ‘F*ck all you Lil’ Kim fans coming at me’cuz I’m gonna like both of them. Y’all ain’t gonna bully me off no Twitter.”
And then, Kim felt the need to defend her loyal followers against K, which resulted in their feud.
“B*tch, trying to get a VMA moment. Neither one of us was there, motherf*ck*er. God damn. At least I’m in the studio working. It’s my first album, you could’ve at least been a guest. You been in the game […] I’m not bothering no body. They come for me ‘cuz they know I’m going to say something”
“I look up to you. You know how much I respect you, Kim, as a legend. Why would you go talk to me on Twitter to keep them lil’ three fans you got? You could’ve been a woman and texted me. I don’t get that. I have been so supportive of her. But you tell your fans to attack me.”
K adds that Kim ignored her attempt to reach out to her privately, but says that she won’t be swayed by Kim’s “petty b*tch” antics.
“Yes, I still like Nicki and I’m still gon’ shake my a** to her music. But how you did me that was very petty. You got a new baby, shouldn’t your breast be in that baby mouth? You should be doing some sh*t like breastfeeding instead of bothering me. I’m out here trying to get to where you was.”
Watch K’s interview below.
Why does it seem like after every award show two random female artists get into it on Social Media? Oh because that is what always happens, and last night’s VMAs were no exception. Lil Kim And K. Michelle are currently beefing because, to put it simply, Kim got in her feelings for absolutely no reason when K. shouted out Nicki Minaj as the queen of rap and subsequently told Kim’s fans who came for her to eff themselves. Here’s how the drama broke down.
Instead of calm her fans, Kim defended them and called K. out as shady, writing:
Then K. Michelle bowed out gracefully, posting the following:
It’s a rare occasion that we can say K. Michelle took the high road, but in this instance she most definitely did (minus that whole drink a cup of bleach comment). Why does bigging up Nicki Minaj who, factually, is the only Black female rapper doing anything substantial today, have to equate shading a top Black female rapper of yesteryear? And if Kim wanted to jump in and say anything she should’ve told her fans to chill and stop drumming up unnecessary drama — though I’m inclined to think she should’ve stayed off Twitter to begin with and focus on bonding with her newborn baby instead of Tweefing. The best comeback she had for K.’s comment was:
“They Make It Seem Like There Can Only Be One”: Remy Ma On Why Today’s Female MCs Can’t Seem To Get Along
“What I think happens with females in this game, they tend to allow other people to pit us against each other. I’ve said this before. They make it seem like there can only be one female. It can be a thousand guys that’s putting out music and rapping and doing what they do, but when it comes to females in this hip-hop business, they make it seem like it can only be one, and if there’s more than one then, ‘Alright, y’all better be at each other’s throats every chance that you get.’ And anytime you say one of those things, they be like, ‘Oh yeah! She has to be talking about this person when she said that!’ And I just feel like it got really crazy. I wouldn’t tolerate it, me personally. But some people are easily led astray. If you have enough people like, ‘She’s coming at you! She’s getting at you! You gotta say something!’ Or, ‘You tryna get on, ma! You gotta diss her to get on ’cause she’s who’s winning right now.’ Like, that’s not what it’s about. I’m around all day. I don’t have to go at somebody else for Rem to do her.”
Remy (aka, Reminisce Smith) has already said that she would love to do a track with Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea, and if possible, all three women all on one song doing their thing. But do you see that happening anytime soon?
