Eighteen years ago, Lil’ Kim‘s debut LP Hard Core arrived, brandishing fierce hits like “No Time,” “Crush On You” and “Not Tonight.” The decades have taken the Queen Bee down many unexpected roads, and in 2014, she’s now in the more humble arena of putting out her music in mixtape form. Hard Core 2K14 is her (delayed) second such release, following 2011’s Black Friday, and it finds Kim corralling hip hop mainstays like Jadakiss, Yo Gotti, Cassidy and French Montana for feature duties.

You’ve already heard cuts like the Nicki Minaj-baiting “Identity Theft” and “Real Sick.” Now you can grab all of Hard Core 2K14 as a free download and see if there’s much buzz in Queen Bee’s latest.
