Lil Kim - Hard Core (Cover)

Days before its release, Lil Kim reveals the cover art for her long-awaited mixtape, Hard Core.

Inspired by her 1996 of the same title, the artwork is illustrated and features black panther, surrounded by money, roses and champagne, while a portrait of Kim hangs above the fireplace.

Originally announced in July 2013, the project has been pushed back several times. It’s now due out Thursday (Sept. 11).
