Lil Kim has revealed that she has written tracks for different artists, including Sean “Diddy” Combs in the 1990s.
In an interview with XXL that celebrated her iconic status in the music game, the “Black Friday” raptress compared her repertoire to that of Michael Jackson and revealed that she once wrote for the famous multi-hyphenate.
“To me, my albums start from ‘Notorious K.I.M.’, because ‘Hard Core’ is a classic,” Kim mentioned. “It’s just something different. It’s a staple. It’s monumental, like something that just is like in a museum. You don’t even put a number on it, you know what I mean?”
The New York rapper added, “It’s just something like how I look at Michael Jackson’s albums, you know what I mean? It’s just a classic. And by the way, all this talk about writing, I’ve wrote for other people. I’ve wrote on Diddy’s album. Check your credits, homeboy. Whoever his name is, I just learned about some guy that was talking smack. Whatever. Yeah. Do your homework, el stupido.”
As it turns out, despite Lil Kim’s earlier claims dating all the way back to 2014 that Biggie wrote all her raps, she was, in fact, a prolific songwriter on some 1990s Rap classics.
