No more PayPal for Lil Kim. The Queen Bee has reportedly signed a deal with Universal Music Group recently.

According to Hip Hop DX, the stealth signing went down with no fanfare at all. Not even an official statement has been released. However, Kimmy Blanco's name has appeared on the company's roster.

This will be the first deal that Kim has struck since parting ways with Atlantic Records in 2008. The Brooklyn rapper released four albums including her classic debut, 1996's Hardcore, on the label.
