After breaking into the rap game in the early '90s with the help of the Notorious B.I.G., Lil' Kim has had no problem staying in the spotlight. As the self-proclaimed Queen Bee of hip-hop, Kim released a string of hit records before being incarcerated in 2005, but she still managed to turn that misfortune into a reality show and an album that came out while she was in prison. A stint on Dancing With the Stars brought Kim squarely back into the public eye, and now she seems determined to reignite her music career. This intimate show at the Fine Line will give her fans, who have stuck with her through thick and thin, a chance to reconnect with Lil' Kim in a major way, and should give Kim an opportunity to rock the crowd once again with her always provocative songs.
