The Ultimate Random Party Playlist

Before I started downloading songs from bursalagu, I would use all kinds of tricks to get music for free, short of pirating them from file sharing programs. I would download music videos and rip the audio from them using free software. The results weren’t as good as the actual song files found on a CD or music download service, but they were good enough for me. Later, websites started hosting their own methods for ripping audio from videos hosted on the web, which made it even easier for me. Now I don’t even bother with those methods and just download the audio file.

Recently a friend of mine decided to have a party at his house and wanted me to help him track down some songs. His list included some old songs that I haven’t heard in a long time, and some obscure ones that were new to me. Since my friend grew up in Europe, he was used to hearing a lot of songs that never came to America outside of a few small circles or some very specific radio stations. He’s really into those fast Euro beat songs and likes to dance along to them when he thinks no one is watching.

We found the songs easily and burned them to a disc. For some reason, my friend didn’t want to buy a dedicated music player that can handle song files, and he didn’t want to use his phone as a music player during the party because he thought that someone might call his phone and interrupt the music while it’s playing. It’s not really a big deal, because I sometimes use my old CDs in my car, but it would be easier for him to just have a dedicated player. At least he wouldn’t have to pay for blank discs.

Lil Kim’s Restrictions on Releasing New Music

New is out that the reason we haven’t heard much new material from Lil Kim (except Black Friday, of course) is that she has not actually been allowed – for contractual reasons – to record any new music. Unfortunately, this has meant that Lil Kim’s fans have a long wait for a new album from their idol.

The Queen Bee has not officially released any new material since way back in 2005 – a time at which she was releasing the likes of The Naked Truth and her infamous duet, Here We Go Again, with singer, Kelly Rowland. It turns out that Lil Kim’s restrictions are down to a long-standing and ongoing lawsuit with her previous record labels.  The news all came out in the open when Lil Kim appeared in a rare interview with MTV. She told of how, in 2005, she was unhappy with her then record label, Atlantic Records, and wanted to look for a way out of the contract. Kim was going through tough times at that point, as we remember, and she ended up spending a stint in prison.

The truth comes out

Kim poured her heart out to MTV, and issued a statement, explaining how she tried to come to a deal with her record label bosses. “When I came home from prison in 2006, I was really unhappy with my label so I wanted to get off, and I didn’t get released,” she said. “I wasn’t dropped. I had to pay them. So, at the end of the day, it’s like that takes time.”

This explains why Lil Kim turned to other means of earning a living; in the years that followed, we saw her on many reality TV shows. She also made a living through sales of an abundance of Lil Kim merchandise – from T-shirts and engraved gifts to the launch of her own clothing line. “For two years, I fought and fought and fought and finally there was a break. During those two years, I did my Hollywood thing, I mean doing reality shows, ‘Dancing WithThe Stars’ and all that good stuff.”

The “break” Kim refers to was the emergence of a new record deal with another label, Trackmasters. However, not long into signing the contract with Trackmasters, it was clear to Kim that things weren’t working out the way she had hoped. Her artistic direction was very different to the one in which Trackmasters tried to steer her. “It didn’t work out,” she said. Getting out of the contract “took another year or two.”

Big break turned into second label disaster

However, things weren’t that simple for Kim. Rumour has it that when she was having issues with Atlantic Records, Trackmasters paid them $200,000 to free her from her contractual obligations. They then spent a further $240,000 on the production of a new pipeline album, which never got released, as well as paying out for her rent each month.

When things didn’t work out, Trackmasters filed a lawsuit, suing Lil Kim for $2.5 million. A clause in her contract also meant that she was prohibited from releasing any new music. If she proceeded to release a new album, she would be liable to pay her former record company even more money.

Black Friday – a mixtape not an album

What about Black Friday, though, the track that Lil Kim released during the climax of her feud between fellow rapper Nicki Minaj? “Technically, Black Friday was a mixtape, so I was able to get away with that,” Lil Kim said during her recent interview with MTV. “But technically, they could have come after me if I were to put out an album. I couldn’t do it.”


“So, this is something that my fans don’t know, but now you know. Legally, I wasn’t allowed or able to do music. And ‘til this day I’m not going to say I’m glad that the lawsuit happened with Trackmasters, but it made me more of a businesswoman.”



Finally on the up

However, the good news is that everything appears to be sorted for Lil Kim now. As we know, she’s just made Keys to the City with Young Jeezy, a track that has had many brilliant reviews. The hard and heavy hip hop track is, according to Kim herself, “the vintage Kim mixed with the new Kim.”

Eve Speaks Out On the Lil Kim vs. Nicki Minaj War of Words

Rapper Eve has shown where her loyalties lie this week when she dished out her opinion regarding the ongoing feud between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj. The ‘Blow Ya Mind’ rapper told BET that she feels Minaj should show respect to Lil Kim for paving the way for her own success. “It’s not about publicity. It’s about wanting that respect,” she says. “I think maybe that’s where Kim is coming from, like, you’re doing your thing right now and no-one can take that away from you, Nicki – we all see it – but at the end of the day, if it wasn’t for Kim, she wouldn’t be here and that shit is real.”


The feud between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj escalated in 2010 when the two began sniping at each other through their records. In February 2011 Lil Kim released the mixtape Black Friday which was a response to Minaj’s song Roman’s Revenge. The title was a play on Minaj’s debut album Pink Friday and the artwork on the mixtape shows the MC veteran holding a samurai sword, covered in blood with what looks like Minaj’s trademark pink wig at her feet. With lyrics such as ‘You lames tryna clone my style and run wit it/You’s a Lil Kim wannabe, you just hate to admit it’ the title track was as ruthless as the artwork and together they conveyed a clear message – the Queen Bee would finish the Harajuku Barbie.

However Nicki Minaj wasn’t going to take the jibes lying down and in April 2011, snippets of her unfinished record Tragedy were leaked online. In it Minaj mocks Lil Kim for selling Black Friday via Paypal and calls her ‘a tragedy’ and ‘a parody’. She has since released other records such as Stupid Hoe which contain subliminal disses towards Lil Kim and other female haters.

Despite these more recent musical exchanges, critics and fans could argue that the rivalry between the two rappers has been brewing from as early as 2007. Some of Minaj’s early promo photos bear a striking resemblance to the photography used on Lil Kim’s 1996 album Hard Core, which fuelled Lil Kim’s accusations that Minaj was trying to emulate her style. The two accounts of the pair’s first meeting also differ with Minaj claiming their first exchange at a Lil Wayne concert in 2009 was much more civil than Lil Kim suggested.

However it wasn’t until 2010 that the public slating really began. At a club gig at Blondie’s in Detroit, Lil Kim addressed the ‘beef’ that was occurring by speaking to the crowd about someone ‘biting her style’. Although she didn’t mention Nicki’s name directly, it was clear who she was talking about. When both artists took part in interviews on radio station Hot-97 FM it became clear that neither of them were concerned with keeping their feelings quiet any longer. Taking on Angie Martinez’s leather sectional sofa, Minaj openly branded Lil Kim a ‘sore loser’ and suggested that she is only back in the spotlight due to her feud with the more contemporary rap star. Similarly, when Lil Kim appeared on the same radio show, she made sarcastic comments about making a record with Minaj and informed fans that the feud was far from over by saying ‘I’m not taking my foot off her neck’.

The ongoing feud has left fans questioning whether all of the animosity is really necessary. Surely two powerful women in the world of hip hop should be supporting each other and collaborating instead of dissing each other on songs. Some fans argue that Minaj has always shown respect to Lil Kim by recognising her as one of her major influences in early interviews. Others agree with Eve’s stance that Minaj should be more respectful of the fact that artists such as Lil Kim paved the way for her own success. But with clear similarities between the two artists, fans of The Notorious K.I.M will no doubt support the rap veteran’s claims that Minaj has tried to copy her style and agree that she is right to pull the younger star up on this. Either way it seems a shame that the two rappers can’t work out their differences and record a track together – judging by their lyrical wit and feisty attitudes it would no doubt be a chart topping success.
