Bobby Valentino – Beep remix audio featuring Ludacris, Lil’ Kim and Lil’ Wayne

The gifted vocalist is familiar with new beginnings. Bobby first charted as a member of Mista, the teenage group responsible for the innovative single “Blackberry Molasses.” Intent on forging a solo career, he reinvented himself as Bobby Valentino and smashed the scene with 2005 chart-topper “Slow Down.” His self-titled solo debut, released later that year on fellow Atlantan Ludacris’s Disturbing Tha Peace/Def Jam label, reached number three on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart.

Lil’ Kim – The Naked Truth review

Kimberly Jones has come along way since her humble beginnings as Biggie’s sidekick. Kim was easily the most recognizable emcee in Jr. Mafia, as her aggressive delivery and sex appeal catapulted her into the limelight.
