It could happen sooner rather than later.
All-female rap classic “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)” might see a 2017 revival if Lil Kim has it her way.
On Saturday night (February 25), the Queen Bee played at the “Hip-Hop & Soul” concert in Reading, Pennsylvania and teased the idea, with fellow MCs Remy Ma and Cardi B. In case you forgot, “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)” was released via 1997’s Nothing to Lose soundtrack and featured Da Brat, Angie Martinez, Missy Elliott, and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
“Let me give a shout out to my beautiful sisters that were on this stage earlier,” Kim said during the show, referring to Remy and the “Love & Hip Hop” starlet. “Cardi B, that’s baby! Remy, bitch, I fucking love your ass. That’s my baby. Maybe y’all might see something in the future. How ’bout that? Another ‘Ladies Night.’ We might be due for that.”
Trina could also be thrown into the mix, considering she remained wishful about an all-star female rap collab in January. “There’s so many girls but the platform is not there for this one to do a record with this one and for this to be a big collaboration,” she said during an interview with Shade 45. “There’s nobody doing that. When there was ‘Ladies Night,’ there was Kim, Missy, Left Eye, Angie Martinez. That’s still one of the most amazing and best records, classic, of all times, but all females. I’m afraid to think we may never have another record like that.”
One thing is for sure: don’t expect a Nicki Minaj verse on that remake.
