Conclusion

Pro-social Content

On “Last Day” Kim claims she fears nothing but God and plans to be with Him.

Objectionable Content

It’s hard to tell what’s more vile, her language or lust for lewd, casual sex. At times the two join forces. A duet with rapper Maino employs harsh slang for male and female genitalia before launching into an ode to oral and anal sex (“Gimme That”). Kim prostitutes herself, guiding listeners in the creation of mental porn by telling them to picture her in specific, explicit scenarios (“Kitty Box”). “Kronik” compares sex with the rapper to the finest marijuana. A guy berates females who dare object to Kim’s sleazy persona, implying that their anonymity makes them worthless (“Shut Up B--ch”). More than 70 f-words litter the lyrics and one title. Weed, cocaine and alcohol are drugs of choice. Young fans learn “money is power, sling crack, weed and powder” on “Lighters Up.” Cold-blooded murder factors into six raps. Kim, now serving a year in prison, shows contempt for the legal system (“Slippin”). CD photos qualify as soft porn.

Summary Advisory

We only thought a prison term would silence rap’s first lady of raunch. She may be off the streets, but the lyrical sewage is still flowing. Lil’ Kim tells a rival on The Naked Truth, “Your mouth’s a cage for your tongue if you’d just close your teeth.” Good advice.
