The Queen Bee is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming record Nine, her first studio album in 14 years, and fans can’t wait. While Lil Kim recently announced that the project is slated for a May 17 release date, the rapper shared today that her label is giving her the blues. “EOne has pushed back the date of my album y’all if you have an issue take it up with them,” Kim wrote on her Instagram Story. “This has nothing to do with me. I am beyond upset with this and couldn’t wait to show you all what I’ve been working on.”
“Also Spotify is hating on me,” she continued. “I can’t understand why after all of the favors I’ve done for them. Direct all of your energy towards them too.” Nine looks as if it’s having a difficult time reaching fans, but at least it’s still on its way. Giving fans a little gift for being patient, the New York rapper released a brand new single titled “No Auto Blanco.” Lil Kim is always one who spits rhymes as she boasts about her boss moves, but this beat, partnered with a cadence that’s reminiscent of earlier on in her career, is meant to strike fear in the hearts of rapper who may think that she’s giving up her reign.
