Lil Kim has revealed that she’s has written songs for other artists including Diddy back in his “all up in the videos” days in the 1990s.

“To me, my albums start from Notorious K.I.M., ’cause Hard Core is a classic,” she said. “It’s just something different. It’s a staple. It’s monumental, like something that just is like in a museum. You don’t even put a number on it, you know what I mean?”

She continued: “It’s just something like how I look at Michael Jackson’s albums, you know what I mean? It’s just a classic. And by the way, all this talk about writing, I’ve wrote for other people. I’ve wrote on Diddy’s album. Check your credits, homeboy. Whoever his name is, I just learned about some guy that was talking smack. Whatever. Yeah. Do your homework, el stupido.”

It turns out that Lil Kim was a prolific songwriter on certain 1990s rap masterpieces, despite to her past statements, which date all the way back to 2014, that Biggie composed all of her raps. According to Vibe, a prime example is her little-known songwriting credit on “What You Gonna Do,” which was released on the 1997 album, No Way Out, by Puff Daddy & The Family.
