Lil’ Kim is already working on her next album — and Tory Lanez is executive producing. The legendary MC shared 9 last year, her first album in 14 years, and has now revealed that she and Lanez have been cooking up some new music in the studio.
“Anybody who knows me knows that I love this man and that he’s one of my biggest music idols,” she captioned a photo of herself and Lanez in an Instagram post on Monday (March 23). “I can’t wait for us to get out of this damn quarantine.”
“And before y’all get started wit ya mess me and my friend [Tory Lanez] (and one of the executive producer’s of my next album) and I oop!” she continued. “We just be having so much fun when we be working in the studio!! I guess it’s safe to say I’m a big fan of Toronto!!”
Although Kim hasn’t offered any further details on the upcoming project, she was also reportedly seen hitting the studio with Fivio Foreign recently. The Brooklyn-bred rapper collaborated with Rick Ross, Musiq Soulchild, Rich the Kid, O.T. Genasis and the City Girls on 9.
For Lanez, 2019 saw the arrival of his Chixtape 5 mixtape. Last month, he announced that his next mixtape New Toronto 3 was officially finished and gave the project a March release date. He also revealed that the project would mark the end of his five-album deal with Interscope Records.
“ITS OFFICIAL, NEW TORONTO 3 COMES OUT MARCH!!!!” he tweeted February 24. “AND AS SOON AS YOU HEAR IT … I HAVE OFFICIALLY FINISHED MY DEAL WITH INTERSCOPE … ITS BEEN REAL.”
So far, Lanez has dropped off a new single called “W,” which is possibly the first cut from the mixtape. The Canadian-bred artist hasn’t offered an official release date for the tape, although he has promised it’s coming “soon” on Twitter.
