Bio From All Music.Com
Junior Masters At Finding Intelligent Attitudes, or Junior M.A.F.I.A., were able to grab instant notoriety with two hit singles, "Get Money" and "Player's Anthem," thanks to their childhood crony and producer, The Notorious B.I.G. Their gold-certified debut album, Conspiracy (Undeas/Big Beat), was also released on Biggie's Undeas label in 1995. Hailing from Bedford-Stuyvesant, New York, the group was comprised of four separate acts: the 6s (Little Caesar, Chico and Nino Brown), the Snakes (cousins Larceny and Trife), MC Klepto, and 47 MC Little Kim. Their rhymes mostly conveyed scenarios involving guns, money and sex. The single "Get Money" was popular enough to help one of the group's members start a solo career. Lil' Kim, "the lieutenant" of Junior M.A.F.I.A., presented her own agenda and promiscuous persona, which some public figures protested, but fans concentrated on her skills as a rap artist. Her album Hard Core (Undeas) was released in 1996 and featured the hit singles "Crush On You," "Queen Bitch" and "No Time" (which became a number one rap single). Biggie, Sean "Puffy" Combs and Little Caesar contributed to the album as well. Soon after, Kim's popularity paved the way for guest raps on songs by artists such as Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Mary J. Blige, Sean "Puffy" Combs, and appearances on the movie soundtracks Money Talks and High School High. Lynda Lane

Lil' Kim's Bio From All Music.Com
After making her presence known on Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s debut album Conspiracy, Lil' Kim launched a solo career in 1996 with the release of her first record, Hard Core. As the album's title implies, Lil' Kim was a raritiy among female rappers one that not only concentrated on edgy, hardcore rap, but also explicit sexuality, two territories that had long been the province of male rappers. Of course, Lil' Kim's near-pornographic sexuality and hard-edged rhythms made her an anamoly within hip-hop, but Hard Core proved that she was no novelty, as it garnered positive reviews and strong sales.

A native of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, Lil' Kim was raised by her parents until they split up when she was nine years old. Following their separation, she lived with her father, yet he threw her out of the house when she was a teenager. As a teen, she lived with her friends and, occasionally, on the streets. Eventually, she and her rhyming skills came to the attention of Biggie Smalls, who helped her cultivate her career. Smalls helped her become a member of the Junior M.A.F.I.A., and Lil' Kim was a key part of the group's hit debut single, "Player's Anthem." Lil' Kim also made a big impression on the remainder of the Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s 1995 debut album, Conspiracy.

Following the release of Conspiracy, Lil' Kim appeared on records by Mona Lisa, the Isley Brothers, Total and Skin Deep. For her debut album, she worked with a variety of producers, including Sean "Puffy" Combs, High Class, Jermaine Dupri, and Pretige. The result, entitled Hard Core, was released in late 1996. Lil' Kim's marketing campaign for the album was quite provocative she was dressed in a skimpy bikini and furs in the advertisements, as well as the album covers but instead of resulting in a backlash, the album became a hit, debuting at number 11 on the pop charts. The first single from the album, "No Time," was a duet with Sean "Puffy" Combs, became a number one rap single. The long-awaited Notorious K.I.M. followed in 2000, and then came La Bella Mafia in 2003.

Two years later Kim was in court defending herself against a perjury charge. She was eventually convicted of lying to a federal grand jury about her knowledge of a 2001 shooting outside of New York's influential radio station Hot 97 FM. Kim had claimed she wasn't aware that her manager and a friend were present, but surveillance cameras proved the two were there. In September of that year, the new album The Naked Truth appeared while its "Lighters Up" single was dominating urban radio. Documenting the rapper's preparations for incarceration, the BET reality show Lil' Kim: Countdown to Lockdown first aired in March 2006 and became the most watched series debut in the network's history.

On July 3, 2006, she was released on good behavior after serving ten months of her 12-month sentence. Kim exited the prison in a silver Rolls-Royce. She quickly returned to the music scene in 2007, participating in a number of remixes, collaborations, and concert appearances with the likes of Diddy, Keyshia Cole, Missy Elliott, and 50 Cent, among others. The following year, Kim released Ms. G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All-Time), which was produced by Mister Cee, Lance Rivera, the Trackmasters, and DJ Whookid. Stephen Thomas Erlewine
