Rapper, Lil Kim, has gotten fans upset with her new appearance which obviously looks like she has caved into the pressure of the industry.
Some of the 41 year-old’s features which appeared to have been worked on were her eyes. They seem stretched back.
This reconstruction has sparked rumors that she had a face lift. Those who saw her at an event in LA on March 31 confirm that Lil’ Kim’s face wasn’t so ‘pulled’ during her outing at Brinks 5th Year Anniversary Party in Los Angeles.
Kid Cudi And Kanye West Back On Good Terms – Kid Cudi quit Kanye West’s G.O.O.D Music about 3 years ago, but both rappers are now back on good terms.
The duo reunited in the studio for Kanye’s The Life Of Pablo album, and in a recent interview with Billboard magazine, revealed they both sat down and resolved their issues.
That was the first time I had been around him and his team in a while. In order to get back into the creative process, we had to talk. I’m not one of those people who’s just going to come around after a while, jump in and make music. We needed to have a big bro, lil bro convo. As soon as we had that, we were good. Whatever we were dealing with, it was a beautiful thing to clear the air about. I’m really happy to be back working with my friends.
‘Ye and I have speckles. Maybe we’ll both be in the same place at the same time and be like, “Let’s do this” and have 30 songs with each other. But for now, I’m just happy to lend a hook. The last thing I want to do is write a rap for someone else’s song. I’d much rather have a hook and fall back. And that’s what Kanye wants from me. I sing and Kanye ensures me that it’s dope.
I enjoy creating. The first song Kanye sent me is “Waves.” He sent me that in December. It was different than it is now. I remember one night we were all just sitting there and I was hoarse from a show the night before where I lost my voice. I was in New York listening to the latest edit. Chris Brown was already on it and we were thinking about how we could make it better. Chris really has this amazing voice. But there were all these ad-libs around it. So I cleared out all the extra and let’s just hear him. That’s ultimately what you hear now. We all bounced ideas around and came up with this minimal version. Once we got that, I hummed on it a little. Kanye had been working on that album for a while. And as you can see, it’s still changing. That song wasn’t even going to make it. But I was like, “We have to do something.” And then Chance the Rapper pushed. And Mike Dean and Plain Pat were key players, too.
Cudi, who is releasing his 5th studio album, revealed that the album would not be a continuation of his Man Of The Moon series.
Guys, you have to realize: I came up with ‘Man on the Moon’ when I was a young man. People change their vibe! We can follow the same template and do the five-act split. Sonically, I’m still going to be where I’m at. Honestly, I was ready to live up to the obligation and do Man on the Moon 3. I haven’t been dicking around. I was planning on doing it after ‘Speedin’ Bullet.’ But the ‘Speedin’ Bullet’ response tore me up. It made me realize what’s most important. I’m getting back on the bike again and doing what I do best: me.
