Lil' Kim's Hard Core Mixtape Has Arrived

First there was the album, and now...

Lil' Kim is back. Just a few months after the birth of her baby girl, the Brooklyn rapper delivers her 12-track Hard Core mixtape. Fans were so exited to hear the project that they crashed her site on Thursday night, but we're back up and running now.

Features include Jadakiss, French Montana, Yo Gotti and Cassidy and the tape starts with men discussing the effects of that iconic poster of Kim squatting in the promo for her 1996 debut album Hard Core (over Eminem's "Lose Yourself" beat nonetheless).

Stream Hard Core below.
