Lil Kim Announces the Release of Her First Album In 14 Years

Don't call it a comeback.

Lil Kim is gearing up to release her first album in 14 years.

The rap legend formally announced the release of her fifth studio album, 9. The announcement follows the release of her latest single, "Go Awff" from last month, which is slated to appear on the album.

Kim released the album release date at a recent show saying, "Alright, while I’m here, fu*k it. May 17th. Nine, the album. It’s my fifth album,” announces Kim. "I got some sh*t for y’all. One of my favorites is this record I got with Ricky Rozay. Crazy.”

The Queen Bee released her last studio album, The Naked Truth, in 2005. Since then, she's dropped four mixtapes, 2008's Ms. G.O.A.T., 2011's Black Friday, 2014's Hard Core 2K14, and 2016's Lil' Kim Season.

Kim's longtime collaborator and fellow legend Missy Elliott is just as excited as the hive is.
