  1. It’s nice to see Kim getting involved with positive things these days.

  2. Kim is the victim of a society that doesn’t appreciate the beauty of Black women and she fell victim to that world and what we see now is the result of that.

    Everytime we as a people make “you so dark” or “your hair is so nappy” jokes, we help create the next generation of Lil Kims.

  3. Add drugs, deviant sexual behavior and lack of parental guidance – and you have Lil Kim 😥

  4. Again- you must leave a space between your last letter and smiley in order for it to show up.If you don’t you get this->:thumbsup: instead of this :thumbsup: .

  5. I was typing so fast, I forgot to insert a space, but thanks :thumbsup:

  6. I am happy to see Lil Kim doing something positive for a change. Now if she can only rap about something positive, instead of that non-sense she rapped about in the past. Hopefully she will continue to do positive things with her life. Her next move is to reduce her boob size back to normal. And stop wearing so much makeup and try to wear a normal type of hairdo. She was a bueatiful young lady when she first became popular. But unfortuantely look at her now. :stop:

  7. I’m suprised she hasn’t been doing alot of giving back considering she just got out of jail. I want a Kim album. She should title it “Can you Hear Me Now” For the haters, lol.
