Seemingly out of nowhere, Lil Kim is promoting a brand new mixtape titled Lil Kim Season with a fresh release date on Monday. 

Lil Kim's been slowly stepping back onto the scene with a SoundCloud remix to an Omarion hit in December titled "That B*tch" which wasn't nearly as heard as the original. Then came "I Did It For Brooklyn" a few weeks ago, and if you're asking yourself how you haven't heard it yet, here's why
