La Bella Mafia
Label: Atlantic Records
Lil' Kim may only be 4' 11", but she stands tall on her third CD. The diminutive diva's strong point has always been her smart, sexually explicit wordplay, and this time around the heat's turned waaay up with sinewy grooves and raunchy rhymes. Producer Timbaland makes "The Jump Off" one of Lil' Kim's personal best.
