Lil Kim & DMX Perform “Money, Power, Respect”

Posted by J. Tinsley on July 19, 2010

It seems like that Nicki Minaj beef left as quickly as it came. Thankfully.

Kim was in Arizona recently for a performance. Obviously, at Kim show, she’s going to run through a string of old hits. “How Many Licks?” Yep. “Crush On You.” Yep. “Get Money.” Of course. “Player’s Anthem.” That one too. Hell, if you’re lucky she may even do her verses from “Ladies Night” and “Lady Marmalade.” However, one of the better songs in her catalog is “Money, Power, Respect.” Popping around the time I entered middle school, it was classic Kim (even if she did just do the hook), classic LOX and classic DMX.

At least for a moment in time, Kim turned back the hands of time and brought out the recently freed Earl Simmons to perform the late ’90’s classic. The quality isn’t the greatest, but you take what you can get. It’s good to see X out and making and performing music again. He’ll never be the DMX we remember from 1998 or 1999 and that’s fine. Time changes and so do people. As long as its positive coming from X, I’m all for it.
