Lil’ Kim’s new album The Naked Truth, which dropped a week after the famously frank rapper began her jail sentence, is so stacked you’d think she was going away for 12 years, not 12 months. Honestly, with 21 tracks and clocking in at just over 76 minutes, the album’s longer than your average porno movie. Kim addresses her legal woes on “Slippin,” blaming “poor representation” and a case of “guilty by association” for her indictment and conviction, and takes swipes at her old posse, Junior M.A.F.I.A., on “Whoa” and “Spell Check,” two of the album’s best tracks: “I’m more nigga than them bitch-ass guys/Cause they took the stand, on the D.A.‘s side.” She even lashes out at Wendy Williams and Star Jones on the tongue-in-cheek, anti-gossip “Shut Up Bitch,” but the preemptively defensive album’s biggest problem is that it’s surely nowhere near as interesting as its yet-to-be-recorded post-slammer follow-up will be. By album’s end, Kim is back to her old lil’ tricks, with two back-to-back songs—“Gimme That” and “Kitty Box”—dedicated to the woman’s supposedly taut vagina: “My beehive gags ya, when it grabs ya/Pussy get wetter than the whole Niagara.” I don’t know. By now that shit’s probably got a hacking cough…though I’m sure all the female inmates with their Lil’ Kim posters at Philadelphia’s Federal Detention Center won’t mind one bit.
