Review - :
Now that Lil' Kim's third solo outing is upon us, it's fair time to pose this question: is this fly Brooklyn female a legitimate MC or just another media sensation? Well, probably a little of both. La Bella Mafia is a refreshingly uncommercial album that demonstrates Kim’s hard-earned mic skills, but the set never really hits its stride. Kim seems to be a woman who favors strong musical partners, yet many of the album’s collaborations fail to inspire. Swizz Beats is at his abysmal worst (as both rapper and producer) on "This Is Who I Am" while Kim’s cookie-cutter rhymes blindly follow his lead. "The Jump Off" features a hot, bhangra-accented Timbaland track that loses momentum when guest star Mr. Cheeks jumps in. But when it works, La Bella Mafia shines. Just check out "Hold It Now," where Havoc ratchets up the temperature with judicious use of the always-funky Beastie Boys sample "Paul Revere" and Kim rises to the occasion with a performance worthy of her Queen Bee title. --Rebecca Levine

- Best Believe It's A Classic, You [expletive]!!!

This is, without a doubt, Lil' Kim's best CD to date. I've been a fan for a few years now. I loved both "Hard Core" and "Notorious KIM". This bests both of them. There is not a track on here not worth a listen. Fans of Kim, and fans of rap and hip hop in general should not sleep on this album. Kim talks about her personal relationships gone bad ("Heavenly Father"), her shopping sprees ("Way BIG"), and tells us how it is ("Can't F*ck With Queen Bee", "This Is Who I Am"). It's an album that has fun but also has its serious tones as well. The production is also fabulous. The beats Kimmy picked suit her and her flow to a T. So buy this album and support the original Queen [explicit] of rap.

Highlights include: "Way Big", "Shake Ya Bum Bum", "Magic Stick", "Can You Hear Me Now", "Thug Love", "Heavenly Father", "Can't F*ck With Queen Bee", and "Beehive". But again, EVERY song is a classic.

***NOTE*** The tracklisting Amazon has listed as of 3/4 is not correct. There are actually 16 tracks on the CD and some of the titles have been changed and some songs have been replaced by others.

- Haters often get skeeted on

Man, I read the reviews here and people are so whack. Lil' Kim is Lil' Kim. She is one of the only females that can actually lay it down proper. Now, not Gangsta Boo proper, but Kim can hold her own. Sure, Biggie let her in, but where is he? Dead. Where is she? Living in a mansion still making music and everything. Kim proves she has lasting power. Eat that.

***2."Hold It Now"-This is a hot track set to the Beastie Boy's "Paul Revere" beat. Kim took that beat and made it hers. Go on, girl!***

***3."Doing It Way Big"-A track for the haters. Kim is rapping about everything she has. I know you haters can't stand it.***

***6."Shake Ya Bum Bum"-What is ma doing on here? I love it. This is the clean Kim that we really don't know that well.***

***7."This Is Who I Am"-This is a great song where Kim puts herself on the table for us to see that she's doing what she does, and if it were any different, it wouldn't be her.***

***8."The Jump-Off"-This is the song that turned me onto Lil' Kim. She is hot on this track (visually and lyrically) and I love Timbalands beat. We need more stuff like this.***

***9."This is a Warning"-Kim singing about f**king you up if you cross here. Like Trina, this is a song about a black womans wrath.***

***10."Can Ya Hear Me Now?"-This is a great track. I love the way Kim flows in here. She rips it right.***

***11."Thug Luv"-The best part of this song is Kim. Whew, that girl spits fire. She is rapping fast to match Twista and I think she makes a sonic boom with how fast she spits.***

***13."Get In Touch"-This is gangsta love right here. Kim and her man talkin' about robbing. Ain't gansta love so romantic?***

***14."Heavenly Father"-Another song about Kim putting herself out for us as the listeners to get closer to her. It is a very intimate song, and one of my personal favorites.***

***15."Tha Beehive!"-Kim is hot on here. She is introducing her new crew on her, and in my eyes, she is the only reason to listen to this hot track with a bangin' beat. One of the best.***

***16."Came Back For You"-This is strictly a song for the fans who love your girl. She proves here she got love for you. It's a great closing track, I think, leaving you to want more.***

All in all, this is one of the best female CD's out there. Lil' Kim is proving that she is the ink stain in the skirt of the music industry that refuses to go away, and I am happy she is here to stay. Do it way big, Kimmy!

- Lil' Kim's Jump Off

On this album Lil' Kim did her thing. Out of all 3 of her album I would say this one is her best. When I heard "The Jump Off" I had to buy this album.

01. Intro > This is basically The Notroious B.I.G. explaining about how he found artists in the Junior Mafia. 8/10

02. Hold It Now (feat. Havoc) > I really love this song this song samples from The Beastie Boys's "Paul Revere", so Lil' Kim went Old School on this track. 10/10

03. Doing It Way Big > This song is about spendin' money, livin' large and doing it up big or B.I.G. Anything she does she do it B.I.G. 7/10

04. Can't F**k With Queen Bee (feat. Governor & Shelene Thomasn with Full Force) > On this song she says "You can hate or hale the queen". She's saying know one can mess with her. This song is acutually not my favorite on the album. 4/10

05. Hollyhood (Skit) > This song Lil' Kim is playing a teacher in a classroom. The kids are singing a Mr. Rogers theme but saying "It's a beautiful day in hollyhood". 8/10

06. Shake Ya Bum Bum (feat. Lil' Shanice) > What I like most about this song is Lil' Shanice's verse. It shows that kids can rap too. 8/10

07. This Is Who I Am (feat. Mashonda) > I really love this track. Swizz Beats produced it, so you know its hot. Kim's sayin this is who I am so you can't change her. 10/10

08. The Jump Off (feat. Mr. Cheeks) > The first single off the album. Was the reason I bought this album. Timbaland did his thing in the production of this song. Its a good jump off for the album. 10/10

09. This Is A Warning > This song is acutually a re-make of R. Kelly's "A Woman's Threat". This song is mad hilarious at the end when Kim Mimiks R. Kelly. 9/10

10. (When Kim Say) Can You Hear Me Now (feat. Missy Elliott) > This song is hot. Nothing much to say about this track, it's just one of those bounce tracks. 8/10

11. Thug Luv (feat. Twista) > Was supposed to be the 3rd single, but they never released a video to the song. But was released as a single. I like Twista's verse on the song. And Kim's verse was on point. 8/10

12. Magic Stick (feat. 50 Cent) > Was supposed to be the 2nd single, but they also never released a video to this song. This song was played alot on the radio. I like this song also. 9/10

13. Get In Touch With Us (feat. Styles P)> The beat to this track is off the chain. Lil' Kim verse was real tight on this song. My favorite song on the album hands down. 10/10

13. Heavenly Father > On this song Lil' Kim talks about her problems. The feuds with her and Junior Mafia how she supported them but they didn't appreaciate it. On this song Lil' Kim vents out her problems. She washed her hands and done with it. 8/10

14. Tha Beehive (feat. Reeks, Bunky S.A., Vee & Saint from The Advakids) > On this track some of the new artists of Queen Bee entertainment is featured. I really like this song. 9/10

16. Came Back For You > This song could be a dedication to her fans. At first I did not know this song was produced by Kanye West. She alos disses Foxy Brown on this track. She says "It's enough I got to put up with this Do Do Brown chick".

I would reccomend that you go buy this album if you are a true Lil' Kim fan altough this album was released in 2003. It's one of her best. She did it without help from the Junior Mafia. Also Kim is a trend setters what I mean buy that is that she's was one of the first female rappers to be sexy & hardcore. So she opened doors for other female rappers who wanted to be like that.

- Kim did it again

Yeah, this is one of the best albums to come this starting year 2003. Lil Kim has gone through hard times, but she has managed to make a very solid album. Guest appearances are on point (such as Twista, Styles P. and 50 Cent). There are some very good tracks like "The Jump off", "Get in touch with us", "Thug Luv", "Magic stick" and "Came back for you". Also the sensitive "Heavenly father" and the posse-track "Tha beehive" are good.

All i can say is cop this album, it's worth your money.
