Rap godmother and Dancing With the Stars alum, Lil' Kim, recently revealed the tracklisting for her upcoming mixtape, Hard Core 2K13, which includes some interesting collabos.
The tape was originally scheduled for a Black Friday release, but looks like Kim is taking her sweet time perfecting this one.
She took to Instagram to apologize for the delay (sort of) and drop the 13 track names. She captioned the list:
"I just want to make U guys happy..Please standby.#HARDCOREPLAYLIST 3 bonus tracks included! 🎶🎶 I love U guys! 💋💋"
Fortunately, the listing should make us guys very happy indeed as the "Thug Luv" rapper is working with the likes of JadaKiss, YoGotti, French Montana and (drum roll please) Miley Cyrus.
I guess this explains Miley's impressive Halloween homage to Queen Kim—good to know it's mutual admiration.
Here's the Hard Core track list in full:
1. Intro—In A Minor Part 2
2. Real Sick ft, JadaKiss
3. Kimmy Blanco
4. Be Careful
5. Dead Gal Walking
6. Stadium Muzic ft. YoGotti
7. Whenever You See Me
9. Crush on You Part 2
10. Work Da Pole
11. Suicide ft. French Montana
12. Bad Bitch ft. Miley Cyrus
13. Look Like Money
Kim announced last year that due to an ongoing lawsuit with her previous record label, she was not legally allowed to release music—thus the mixtape instead of LP route.
"Contractually, by the courts, I could not record any music," she said last March.
"I wasn’t supposed to put any music out. Technically, Black Friday [her last musical endeavor] was a mixtape, so I was able to get away with that. But technically, they could have come after me if I were to put out an album."
We're guessing the legal drama is still going strong as there is still no official album of any kind in the works. But who cares what it's called as long as we keep getting tracks like "Kimmy Blanco."
