Lil Kim announces a new mixtape, "Hard Core: Back 2 Da Streetz."
Lil Kim has announced a new mixtape which shares it's name somewhat with her debut album, Hard Core. The cover art for the mixtape, titled Hard Core: Back 2 Da Streetz, also pays homage to her 1996 debut, but replacing Kim on the rug is a white tiger, who is apparently sipping on Ciroc and has a ton of cash.
Lil Kim released the artwork via her Twitter, tweeting, "#HARDCOREMIXTAPE BACK 2 DA STREETZ #TeamLilKim I love all my fans!!!!! ❤❤❤"
Check out her mixtape art, as well as original album art for Hard Core, in the gallery above.
