Lil’ Kim’s long-awaited 9 album was released yesterday at the end of a week where she received her I Am Hip Hop Award from the BET Hip Hop Awards. It is her first album in 15 years and fans have been eager for new music from her. The number 9 has personal significance for her because it is the day her daughter was born, March 9th is the day Biggie Smalls passed, the Junior M.A.F.I.A. was originally 9 members and it is currently the year 2019. Musiq Soulchild, O.T. Genasis, Rick Ross, City Girls and Rich The Kid make guest appearances.
