Lil’ Kim Marks Kevin Gates as ‘#Mine’ on Her New Single

Just days after releasing a swaggering remix of Desiigner’s slick, Future-lite “Panda,” Lil’ Kim’s back with her own single. “#Mine” (yes, the hashtag is included) heavily features Islah rapper Kevin Gates, who serves as a worthy foil to Queen Bee. Kim herself is in pretty spectacular lyrical form here; for all the criticism she’s gotten in recent years for everything from the way she looks to the way she breathes, the rap legend’s happy to cede her spotlight to Gates in order to save some of the most salacious, tongue-twisting shockers for herself. “He said that I stay on his mind / I bet sittin’ on his face,” she rhymes slickly. Kim! More of this.
