YMMV / Lil' Kim

Go To

  • Broken Base: The Notorious K.I.M. and Black Friday. The former with some fans finding it a worthy follow-up to Hard Core and others finding it inferior, the latter with some finding it a much-needed diss towards Nicki Minaj and others finding it hypocritical due to the fact the mixtape includes her collaboration with Minaj and Birdman titled "Gridin' Makin' Money" and to commercialise her feud with Minaj.

  • Best Known for the Fanservice: As mentioned on the main page, some people only know her for her outrageous outfits, despite her being a capable emcee.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Lil' Kim fans vs. Foxy Brown fans, mainly due to their real-life rivalry.
  • First Installment Wins: Hard Core is considered by many fans to be her best album.
  • Never Live It Down: Everytime you see a blog post and/or an Instagram post that focuses on her, you would see people comment on her numerous plastic surgery procedures.
  • Moment of Awesome / Awesome Music: When she performed Cyndi Lauper's hit "Time After Time" alongside the woman herself at Nelson Mandela's 2009 birthday bash. Also doubles as a Heartwarming Moment.
  • Misattributed Song: No, she did not appear on Ice Cube's "You Can Do It". That was Ms. Toi.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: According to an interview in the late 1990s, she was appalled at how some of her fans were proudly playing her songs for their young children. Lil' Kim was well-known for her sexually-explicit lyrics, extolling the virtues of oral sex (giving and receiving) among other topics.
