Another of the Notorious B.I.G's women--Lil' Kim comes into her own with Hard Core, perhaps the most explicitly pornographic album ever made by a woman. With the possible exception of soulmate Foxy Brown, Lil' Kim is the hardest woman in R&B. Sexual over and undertones abound with songs like 'Take it!', and the album features the usual handful of guest appearances, including the now-late Biggy Smalls and members of her former band Junior Mafia. Production chores are handled by the hottest kids on the block: Sean Combs--a.k.a Puff Daddy, Badboy second-in-command Stevie J. and SoSoDef supremo Jermaine Dupri. With the rudest introduction and interlude sections ever recorded, the album features the single "Crush On You" (not to be confused with the Jets/Aaron Carter) which is confusing since Li'l Kim's only contribution to this track seems to be intermittently moaning the word "true". Incidentally, the album's cover is stolen more regularly than any other from London's largest chain of second hand record shops, although what this says about the music is perhaps open to question. --Ronita Dutta

Kim led the way for female rappers, yes there were many who came before but she set the trend for females showing they can be as blunt and as carefree as the man them. This is a must have for any rap fan - this is where female rap STARTS.. Big Momma Thang/Spend a Little Doe/Crush on You - instant classics. My only beef with this is that she remixed Big Momma Thang out of respect for 2pac.
Otherwise your collection is missing out if this is missing.
Lil Kim at her very best!!!
