34. Lil Kim on Mobb Deep's "Quiet Storm" (1999)
Album: Murda Muzik
Producer: Havoc, Jonathan Williams
Label: Loud, Columbia
Opening with a quote from MC Lyte's landmark "10% Diss," the Queen Bee goes to town over this blood run cold instrumental, serving-up a show-stopping cameo that reasserted her self-appointed position as the "baddest bitch" in the rap game. Proving that she could could hold her own without the Midas-touch of Biggie's pen, Kim goes in on all the rap dames who are "coming into this game on some modeling shit." Queens-Brooklyn connection in full effect.
