The line between Lil' Kim's personal life and public persona has always been thin, but on her latest album, The Naked Truth, it disappears entirely. A veritable State Of Lil' Kim Address, it deals with the circumstances that led to her prison sentence with visceral outrage and single-minded purpose. So how is rap's most shameless exhibitionist, emotional and otherwise, feeling these days? If The Naked Truth provides any indication, she's angry, bitter, and horny, in roughly that order. Kim's aptly titled new album provides a window into the tormented mind of the controversial hip-hop icon and wildly divisive sex symbol, and it's as dark and chilly as the synthetic beats provided by a committee of producers who specialize in recapturing the icy electro-funk of early Bad Boy. Part soap opera, part crime melodrama, part oral porn, The Naked Truth radiates anger and intensity as it surveys a grim landscape dominated by fork-tongued gossips, bitter rivals, and vitriolic hateration.
Lil' Kim - The Naked Truth (U.S. Amended Version) - worldxnews.info Music
A trial for a perjury charge stemming from a shooting found the Queen Bee in court. She watching her former Junior M. The wounds cut deep, and to put it bluntly, she was pissed. With just months to tidy up her affairs, she channeled this energy into a body of work as controversial and transcendent as her debut: The Naked Truth. This album resonates unlike any other body of work she has released to date, with its raw anger, brash lyrical assaults and, of course, an essential dash of sex. Kim is known to be a perfectionist and take years to create albums, but she concocted this body of work in less than a year. Her creative process was sparked and constrained by her trial and sentencing, leaving her mere months to gather her thoughts and put them on paper and wax.
