By  | 

On this episode of People’s Party, Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh sit down with rapper, songwriter, and hip-hop icon Lil Kim. We get insight into a number of topics — including her latest album “9,” a college course created at SU dedicated to her lyrics, her first interactions with Biggie, her biggest influences in hip-hop and fashion, and what it is about Brooklyn that made the borough such a rap motherland through the genre’s early years.

Later in the episode, Kim offers her cadid feelings about being titled a feminist icon, what it was like being in the targets of C. Delores Tucker during her crusade against rap music, shares her experiences with Donald Trump on his show “The Apprentice,” and speaks on “Girls Cruise,” now airing on VH1.
