Since parting ways with Atlantic Records in 2008, Lil’ Kim has been linked to nearly every record company possible; including Roc Nation, Cash Money, and G-Unit. Well, the bidding war is finally over, and the speculations can be put to rest, as Kim has recently signed a new record deal. Despite offers from many major labels, The Queen Bee has chosen Universal Music Group as the place to begin the next phase of her unprecedented career.
The pint-sized rapper has already begun recording an album for the company, which includes the new ‘not-yet-released’ single “Looks Like Money,” and is scheduled to be released later this year.
There is still no word as of yet if the deal with UMG is set to include Kim’s own imprint/record label or not, but it is safe to say she has a major company backing her and has now been added to their roster as well. It’ll be interesting to see how things pan out for The Queen Bee. We, at VIBEVixen, are wishing Kim the best of luck with all future endeavors!
