Lil' Kim goes reggae on her new track, "Dead Girl Walking."
That's right: The first lady of hip-hop has just dropped the reggae-tinged "Dead Gal Walking," the first sampling off her forthcoming Hard Core 2k13 EP, out Nov. 29.
Listen to Lil' Kim's "Dead Gal Walking" after the jump.
Set to a lush, laid-back, reggae-tinged track (think Robyn's "Dancehall Queen" meets Rihanna's "Man Down"), "Dead Gal Walking" features Lil' Kim flexing her vocal muscles on the song's hook ("She's a dead gal walking.../ There's a war going on outside"), followed by a hefty dose of The Queen Bee's signature flow: "Red Christian Loubs/ Match the red lambo Viper." (Ugh, if only.)
About her new song, Kim told MTV News,"It's a very strong, serious record, but at the same time, feel-good." "There's a lot of things that can turn you into a dead girl or a dead man walking and nobody wants to be that. So, I guess my message is 'Don't become a dead girl or dead man walking. Live your life right'."
AMEN! Raise your hand if you can't wait to hear more Kim's Hard Core 2k13! *Arm nearly pops off from enthusiasm*
