In the newest issue of Rolling Out magazine, Kimberly “Lil Kim” Jones makes it clear that she is the one and only Queen B.
Inside, the rapstress talks everything from keeping her legacy alive in the hip-hop community, whether she’d ever do a reality show as well as her personal and business relationship with Diddy:
ON CONTINUING HER LEGACY:
I’m a real artist. I [have] basically been in the game for a minute, [so it’s] where I feel like it’s time to go to [another] level in my career. I think every artist has that moment — if you’re a real artist. I care about what I do, so in different things [you’re] always concerned about your next step — but that doesn’t stop me from taking it.
ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH SEAN “DIDDY” COMBS:
I mean … business is business and personal is personal. I think that’s always been clear, but you learn more why it’s clear as you live it. [...] Puffy called me one day and he tracked me down through some people I knew. [He said] ‘No matter what, you’re going to always be my sister.’ We always go through things like that. At the end of the day, we’re tied to each other through B.I.G.’s estate and B.I.G.’s iconic, historic legacy.
ON HER TITLE OF QUEEN B:
That’s something I was born with. When you’re born with talent, you also have the talent to conduct your own business. With me, that’s how it is. I just know how to turn it on and off. I just know what I want from myself [...] In my field, I am the blueprint of what I do. I’ve always starred in my own lane.
