Lil Kim Says She ‘Passed the Torch’ To Cardi B: ‘She Has the Crown Now’

Lil Kim has been blazing the streets of New York in support of her forthcoming studio effort, ‘9’ (her first in 14 years).

First spotted working the talk show circuit over at ‘Strahan, Sara, and Keke,’ she followed up with a lengthy sit down with our friends at ‘BUILD’ series.  There, she dished on the creation process of the project, why she waited so long to put out an official body of work, and more.

When quizzed on today’s leading divas and what an updated version of her 2001 #1 hit, ‘Lady Marmalade,’ would look like in 2019, Kim sang the praises chart-topping rapstress Cardi B – even proclaiming the 26-year-old is who she’s passed the torch to.
