Lil’ Kim speaks about the struggles she endured after being Kicked out when she was only 15.

“ My raps aren’t all sexual as everyone thinks, I rap about the hustle and struggle, Loss & pain I experienced and lived, the real Brooklyn shit you don’t hear about now. ”


“ Kim and her father didn’t have the best relationship, as they were getting older. He was A military man and lacked the essentials of being a father/parent to his kids. The military took away his parenting skills. Kim’s father was a good man, But wasn’t a good father.”

“The Police started knowing us by first names, because they were called so much. One occasion the fight got serious, It was a physical fight, One thing led to another… Eventually, someone’s going to swing first (Mr. Jones). The next thing you know, you see this little body flying from the couch jumping on her fathers back. Kim tore the place up whilst also protecting her brother. Kim was about to stab her father. ”

“Things got worse when Mr. jones got married to A woman named jackie. Kim & her father just didn’t get along more-so. They decided to buy A house in jersey, but they told kim she wasn’t welcome.

"The less attention her father gave her, she went to the streets to look for it. She dropped out of highschool, and started going to different houses, staying with friends for a while… and when that wore out, she’d have to leave and go to another house. That’s when she began to struggle.. Hard. ”

“ She really started doing real bad.. That’s when she started hustling. She ran with a crowd that was snatching them rings, take chains… She dated this one guy, Who used to beat her, He was a drug dealer, She had nowhere else to go,and eventually ended up living and working with him. She would have to take drugs for cartel guys, sell things for the guys. You date the drug dealers, You had to sleep with them… You had to transport for them, if you wanted money. ”

“ If somebody wanted Kim to do something for them in another state, Kim would be there… If there was money involved and kim could support herself and survive without having to go to her father, She’d do it.”

“I don’t think she wanted to be out there like that, ripping & running, having to do things for money that probably wouldn’t have done if she had that stable home… She had to do, what she had to do to survive.”

“The only way to reach him through phone calls and mail
Balloons stuffed with lah up in the chocha
Now my man in the can getting money and getting high
He used to keep my fly he had the 6 I had the 5
So you know a chick gon’ ride or die for her guy
At age 14 I was putting in work
At age 16 I was moving that work
Getting paid for driving state to state
Smuggling weight, praying I don’t bump into Jake
I traveled through a few places with the burners
in the suitcases, thank God for Big
Damn right I love the life I live
Cause I went from negative to positive and it’s all good” - Lil’ Kim “All Good”

“Newt is second in command after Alby. He is kind of the nice and approachable guy. He’s very friendly and open towards everyone. He doesn’t really have any animosity towards anyone and kind of looks after everyone a bit. He’s a, I think he has settled in to life in the glade and understands how everything works, but I don’t believe he enjoys being trapped. I think he’s still aware that it’s a prison. That he’s sent there. I don’t think he really enjoys it.” - Thomas Brodie-Sangster


I made this gif ages ago but it was too big to publish on Tumblr.

When I found it today and separated it into 3 parts to be able to show it. I think it’s cute. I would chose a lighter and less saturated color scheme if I made it today but I let it be the way I originally made it :)
