        I love the album cover.

        ‘Pray For Me’ is good.

          I was very excited for Pray For Me. Features were exciting, it was the opening track, etc.
          however, I’m disappointed deeply :(

              If I'm not wrong there was miley cyrus feat named "badbitch" 10 years ago in her tracklist

                Pray for Me is a grower. Love her last verse.

                  Last verse is a highlight for sure, but I'm sure most of the listeners won't go that far in the song...

                      Im not sure what to expect from this tbh. I am happy she is finally putting this out but I've been underwhelmed by what she has released so far

                        It's good to see Kim doing promo and getting so much love after all these years PLUS she doesn't look bad! At this point I'm hoping that this finally sees the light of day after so many false starts and delays.

                          It was so nice to see all that love for her at the BET awards. She looked amazing as well.

                              Oohhhhhh, I'm feeling this whole album. On repeat since this morning.

                              Too Bad, You're Not Alone and Auto Blanco are my favorites by far.
                              I kinda get why Bag is the one that she's pushing on Spotify, her verses are quite catchy, she has some really cool lines and TMZ and PETA mentions are dabomb. I don't like the chorus tho.

                              It's obvious she is a different artist now, and this is the type of music she enjoys putting out. I'm proud of her and I'm very happy that she finally has a new album out after 14 years.

                                There are 2 reviews so far. 1 bad, 1 good.

                                http://www.soulinstereo.com/2019/10/album-review-lil-kim-9.html
                                If you ever wondered what it would be like if Lil Kim masqueraded as Future for Halloween, this is the album for you. “Bag” is every trap cliche you can think of – sparse production, creeping lyrics, unnecessary autotune, sing-songy hook. It’s more like a trap parody than a homage. Kim bring a couple of OK punchlines to “Catch My Wave” but the track is so dull that you won’t bother rewinding to catch them, especially with Rich the Kid sounding like he got his masters at the Silkk the Shocker School of Offbeat Flows.

                                Here’s the biggest issue with 9 – Kim spends so much time trying to lure in a new audience with her shiny new trap persona that she abandons much of the aura that made her a legend. In essence, she’s alienating her core audience (the one that’s been patiently waiting for her for years) to chase a younger demo that probably won’t be checking for her in the first place – especially when she’s sounding like the Great Value version of the rappers they already know. No one wins.

                                I know it sounds like I’m being really hard on Kim. Believe me, I’m glad she’s back and getting the accolades she’s due. But as a huge Day One fan, I wanted 9 to be the album that proves to young naysayers that, yes, Lil Kim is the true queen. Instead, she comes off more as a clone.
                                Best tracks: “You Are Not Alone,” “Pray for Me,” “Auto Blanco”



                                https://www.nme.com/reviews/album/lil-kim-9-review
                                It’s amazing how little her voice has changed in the last 25 years: that brittle timbre, the pouted insouciance, the sense of glamour in every note. It’s perhaps the reason that ‘Bag’ – on which she delivers the ‘Hard Core’ nod – a by-the-numbers trap track, is less compelling. Who needs to hear that iconic voice, all piercing clarity and attitude, shrouded in autotune?
                                ‘You Are Not Alone’ is the most quintessential Kim track here, even if it does feature yet more trap sounds and a perhaps unwise Michael Jackson reference.She sounds badass and big-hearted, shouting out B.I.G, as she always has.

                                As she said, you get rewarded differently when you‘ve been as wildly influential as Lil Kim, and made space for the amazing talent that followed in her footsteps. You wouldn’t necessarily call ‘9’ an essential release, but it is a timely reminder that she should be celebrated for her enormous contribution to culture. It’s lewd, contrarian and confrontational – all the qualities that make Kim an icon.

                                  Bag: Rihanna vibes. Autotune & trap. BANGER.

                                  Try me if you want to, you'll be missing more than a hub cap
                                  Now run tell that to TMZ
                                  And what the f*** is twenty G's?
                                  I get more than that to sip Rosι in VIP
                                  I keep the bag on me like I'm Santa Claus

                                  Beach house overseas, that's the meaning of offshore
                                  I used to move that white boy, Justin Bieber
                                  You a atheist, I’ll make you a believer
                                  Mink dragging on the floor, I'm sayin' f*** PETA like Karen and Amina


                                  Catch My Weave: Played this while driving, it sounded WAY BETTER in the car.

                                  You f*** boys need to stop frontin'
                                  Know you in the closet like coat hangers
                                  I'm so tired of you f*** boys, I rather play with my f*** toys
                                  I'm gassin', that Ferrari dick got horse power
                                  I'm gassin', I rode that dick like a whole hour
                                  Too wavy, bitch, I'm a savage
                                  I get the bags, you come with baggage


                                  Too Bad: Young Thug vibes. BOP. I keep coming back to it tbh.

                                  Diamonds dripping all over me
                                  But the money keep calling me
                                  And I know it's too bad for you niggas that we winning
                                  Even if I go vegan, I'm still getting to the chicken


                                  You Are Not Alone: Deep voice Kim. Sounds like a "The Naked Truth" song.

                                  I dismantle any competition to the coalition
                                  What Big started, I'm 'bout to finish
                                  You witness greatness every time I spit this
                                  Like a judge, an overdue sentence
                                  Haters, please leave my life alone
                                  You should never compare diamonds to a rhinestone
                                  I'm like Khaleesi on the Game of Thrones
                                  Get under your skin and burn your flesh and bones


                                  Auto Blanco: She went off, spit bars. Probably most "old school" vibe that the album offers.

                                  "F*** Lil' Kim", that's all I hear is people talkin' evil
                                  "F*** Lil' Kim", if you say that then, bitch, I better not see you
                                  "F*** Lil' Kim", bitch, watch your mouth before they can't ID you
                                  Big and Pac'd be alive right now if you niggas ain't gassed shit up
                                  If I knew who did it, I'd personally wrap they caskets up
                                  I'ma keep Frank name alive, my nigga ain't die for nothin'
                                  Got shooters out in Brooklyn ready to die for nothin'
                                  These rats runnin' round in this jungle, lyin' for nothin'
                                  Be careful we got apes out here, eat you alive for nothin'


                                  Jet Fuel: The beat slaps. Wish there was more Kim.

                                  Y'all niggas ******* MILFs, I'm a ************
                                  They say, "You still live in a mansion?" I'm like yup, yup

                                        Pray For Me is nice. I was expecting low quality bathroom recording quality but okay so far

                                            This is below average to just okay for me. I dont have a desire to really listen to it in full again. If some songs do come on shuffle I'll let it play though. I like Pray For Me and Jet Fuel.

                                                I dont think the sales are surprising considering the present landscape.

                                                The delays really harm any sense of momentum and the word of mouth reviews were terrible. Her catalog should get a bit of a boost though.

                                                    I mean I was hoping for a vinyl release but I don't even think we're going to get any physical release at this point :(

                                                      The album has not debuted on the Billboard 200.

                                                        The label didn't even give this a physical release? That's so weird, she probably would've charted on the Billboard 200 if they had one, hopefully they get it together for when the 2nd 'part' is released
