Lil Kim

Lil Kim was the Notorious B.I.G.'s primary protégé — and on-the-low lover — when she made her debut alongside him on Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s "Get Money." With her double-platinum 1996 album, Hard Core, aided by Biggie's guest verses (and alleged ghostwriting), she blew up solo and remained a star even after his death a year later.
