Album: The Naked Truth
Producer: Scott Storch
Lil’ Kim’s final legit hit was a spiritual successor to “The Jump Off.” It was grittier—this is a city where “police stay on us like tattoos”—but it carried the same familial vibe (the video was similarly cameo-heavy). Lil’ Kim’s patois flow may have thrown some listeners off, but NYC natives knew this was a nod to Brooklyn’s heavy Caribbean community. Their New York was also hers.
