Li’l Kim…The Howard Theatre

“Hip-Hop Eshu: Queen B@#$H 101 – The Life & Times of Lil’ Kim”

English professor Greg Thomas at Syracuse University taught a class in which the students transliterated Kimberly Denise Jones also known as Lil’  Kim’s “Get Money.” The rapper even made an appearance in the class where she spoke to the students about her journey in the rap business and viewed the student’s presentations.

Thomas told ABC in 2004, “Her lyrical artistry is nothing short of revolutionary, It’s the art with the most profound sexual politics I’ve ever seen anywhere.”
