LiL` KiM`s "NoToRiouS K.i.M [BooTLeG]"...



Back again y`all with some ish that I missed out on when it first dropped back in 2000. My homie DiRTy KooL AiD had this kickin` around his crib, he found it while doing some good ol` Spring cleaning....LoL, since I hadn`t heard it before I decided to borrow it so I could share it with the rest of y`all. Figured that there`s probably a few folks out there that haven`t heard this BooTLeG version of Lil` Kim`s "Notorious K.I.M"...




From my understanding the songs on here are mainly left~over tracks from the recording sessions for "Notorious K.I.M", the retail version of the album that was sold in stores, online, etc. It makes for a decent listen, especially if you`re a fan of the Queen Bee. The only down~side about it is that it`s not of the greatest quality, sound~wise. A lot of the tracks sound like they were ripped from a cassette & a few were on the low~side volume~wise, so I made some adjustments to the tracks in an attempt to make `em sound a little bit better than they did -- ensuring not to do anything that would take away the original sound too much...




  A few of the tracks on this BooTLeG were previously released, either on a mixtape, an album or as a B-Side on a single. "Chinatown" is actually from DJ Clue`s "The Professional Part 2" album & "Rockin` It" was featured on Funkmaster Flex`s "The Mix Tape Volume IV: 60 Minutes Of Funk". "Queen Bitch Part II [Rmx]" featuring Jay-Z with Biggie on the hook is from Lil` Kim`s "How Many Licks" 12 Inch promo single...



"No Body Do It Better Than Us" featuring T-Boz & Diddy is from the 12 inch single of the same name. "Revolution [Original Version]" is off some mixtape, so unfortunately there`s a lil` yellin` thru the track from the DJ. Aside from the 5 tracks mentioned I believe the remaining 7 joints were meant to be a part of the retail "Notorious K.I.M." album. For whatever reason they were omitted, maybe it was due to sample clearance issues or maybe they just decided to take the album in another direction. So there ya have it, a few unreleased Lil` Kim tracks for y`all Queen Bee fans, enjoy the tunes...
