Lil' Kim @ Emo's East - 6/19/2012

Lil' Kim is back. Queen Bee brought her "Return of the Queen" tour to Emo's East last night, 6/19 (with Phranchyze and Kid Slyce). I missed out on the openers as I was across the river at The Parish until 11:15 for another show. I left that show early to make sure I was in place and ready for the K.I.M., though it turned out, I had time to spare...

Things got off to a late start (by more than a month if you count the fact that this show had been postponed from the original May 11th date) with Lil Kim arriving at the venue a little less than an hour after the 11pm scheduled set time. That said, she took the stage within 15 minutes (which is pretty amazing from what I've seen elsewhere) and never looked back.

She opened strong, and sounded really great (especially while covering Biggie's 'Mo Money, Mo Problems'). Between songs she was gracious, poised, and seemed truly happy - even looking out at the ladies in the audience and exclaiming, "I wanna go shopping with some of you girls out there..." She was sweet even, but no worries - during the songs things also got dirty real quick.

The set seemed a little condensed (about 45 minutes), which may have been a result of the late start and the fact that time needed to be left for the meet & greet after the show for many of the special-wrist-banded fans.

More pictures from the 6/19 show below. She's back.
