Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Madonna of hip-hop strikes again. But in spite of her blonde ambition (demonstrated on "I'm Human," a "Vogue"-esque tribute to the other material girl), the Queen Bee maintains her thug-ette aesthetic. Her beats (provided by an assortment of dance-floor-friendly producers) may be slick, but the rhymes are rough, rugged, and raw. Kim proved her post-Biggie microphone prowess with a take-no-prisoners cameo on Mobb Deep's "Quiet Storm (remix)". Here she continues her reign. Tracks like "Who's Number One?" where she reps for hometown Brooklyn, and "Notorious KIM," where she denounces ex-pal Foxy Brown, demonstrate her lyrical skills, which transcend the sex-centric niche market that she dominates. Notorious KIM builds on the foundation created by her cheeky debut, Hard Core, with more freakiness than Penthouse's letters page. She also gets macho male rappers on their knees with "Suck My D**k," in which she turns the sexual tables on males like those from N.W.A. The weak spots on the album are flaccid pop confections such as "How Many Licks" and "No Matter What They Say," which don't provide Kim with the support she needs. --Lizz Mendez Berry

"Kim is nothing but a publicity tramp with no class or style. Please stop buying her albums b/c to me, it sounds like stereo porn. Great female MCs to check out: Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Roxanne Shante, even Salt N Pepa. What do they have in common? They were pioneers who didn't sell music with horrible lyrics and had class at the same time. So don't buy any of Kim's records and get something from the ladies I listed above. So now, your stereo system should be playing the right music."
