Universal Music has signed Lil Kim, a former rap prodigy, to their record label. This is the first deal Kim has struck since parting from Atlantic Records in 2008. Although no formal statements have been made in relation to this new addition, Lil Kim’s name officially appears on the list of artists on the label’s website.

Kim released four albums with Atlantic Records from year 1996. Her classic debut, Hard Core, was certified double platinum by 2001. In 2001, Lil Kim also sang in a remake of Lady Marmalade alongside sensations Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Mya for the film soundtrack of Moulin Rouge. The single remained #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks and landed Kim her first Grammy award.

Lil Kim’s other albums include The Notorious K.I.M., La Bella Mafia, The Naked Truth. These albums solidified her placement in the hip hop industry as a highly talented female rapper.

Despite her many achievements, Lil Kim failed to meet the commercial successes of Missy Elliot and Lauryn Hill. She was also involved in disputes against Nicki Minaj, and recorded a mixtape called Black Friday dissing Minaj’s recent album. However, rappers Kim and Nicki might settle their differences as they both currently work under the same label.

Lil Kim is currently working hard on her comeback with Universal Music on a new album which includes a soon to be released single called Looks like Money.

Nicki Minaj’s Relatives Believe Mistaken Identity Led to Cousin’s Murder

DIGIPIX

Relatives of rap superstar Nicki Minaj have told RadarOnline.com that they believe the brutal shooting of her cousin Nicholas Telemaque was a case of mistaken identity.

The slaying of Telemaque, 27, during the early hours of Monday morning has left Minaj, 26, and her relatives reeling. According to RadarOnline, he was shot close to his home in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, around 2.40 a.m. after leaving the C-PAC nightclub with a group of friends.

His cousin Carol Clarke told the website: “He was shot in the chest as he walked towards his car close to his home. Nicki is absolutely devastated as are all our family – she was very close to her cousin but now he has gone.

“She has reached-out to Nicholas’ mom Victoria to offer her words of comfort but she is too distraught. Nicholas was a quiet person but he could be the life and soul of the party too – he did not run with gangs or anything like that.

“His friends have told us there wasn’t any trouble that night and we believe it could have been a case of mistaken identity but the police are still investigating the case.

“We are still trying to make arrangements for his funeral but I will really miss him because he was a good person.”

As previously reported, Minaj (real name Onika Tanya Maraj) has taken to her Twitter to pay tribute to her cousin and post photographs of him.

She wrote: “My cousin Nicholas. Also goes by Juse, or @brolicalcohilic. Murdered. Last nite. Near his home. Brooklyn, NY.”

Nicholas Telemaque was rushed to Kings County Hospital but he died as a result of gunshots to his torso.

He had prior arrests for possession of marijuana and driving on a suspended license – police are still investigating the case and looking for more witnesses to come forward.

Nicki Minaj Says Rap Career Came By Accident, Wants To Be An Actress

Nicki Minaj took her unique rap flow all the way to the top of the pop music industry, but the Young Money First Lady recently revealed that music wasn’t her first career choice.

In fact, she says it happened by accident, and instead, wanted to become an actress initially.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly at Sunday’s (June 5) MTV Movie Awards, Minaj explained that she has taken lessons, and plans to make her dream a reality following her upcoming tour with Britney Spears.

“I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap,” said the rapper. “I would like to get an acting gig. I hope that when I am done with the tour, I can go back and do some acting. That is my long-term goal.”

Her acting aspirations won’t be the typical transitions you see for a rapper/actor though. Nicki says she definitely won’t be doing any straight-to-DVD type releases that most rappers self-produce and release to their fans. She wants to be a player in Hollywood.

“I want to work with Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper-turned-actor and therefore a role model,” Minaj said. “And Tim Burton because I love his crazy imagination. He comes up with these characters that are just so fascinating and the costumes and just creates these whole worlds.”

As far as actual roles, and any movies she’s interested in, that remains unknown.

Nicki Minaj Cuts Diddy As Manager…AGAIN

The Young Money rapstress switches up her management team and links up with Gee Roberson and Kyambo “HipHop” Joshua.

More than a year after signing with Sean “Diddy” Combs and James Cruz as managers, Nicki Minaj is no longer associated with the business moguls. According to XXLMag.com, the Harajuku Barbie is now being managed by Gee Roberson and Kyambo “HipHop” Joshua from Hip-Hop Since 1978, which also manages Lil Wayne, Drake and more.

The news may be surprising for Lil’ Kim fans, as Roberson and Joshua previously served as A&Rs for Atlantic Records for her 2005 album The Naked Truth. The Queen Bee also made a similar move earlier this year by linking up with Fendi, who is credited with launching Nicki’s career.

Before Diddy, Nicki was managed by Debra Antney’s firm, but switched over after firing Antney in April 2010. Rumor has it that she expected Diddy to be more hands-on with her career, and decided to move on when she realized he wasn’t as involved as expected.
