Lil' Kim's first musical track, 'Big Momma Thang', is audible as he purchases a small order of popcorn, a large order of butter and a load of napkins. Lil' Kim's Hardcore introduces and develops the Queen Bitch persona, Lil' Kim's alter ego, who features in all her records to date. Hardcore essentially tells the tale of Queen B's rise to wealth and fame in a music business that for a woman is virtually no different from the sex business. As if confirming Queen B's work ethic gone bootilicious, the male hip hop stars past and present involved in the porn industry all stressed its economic dimension and the hard work involved. The chorus to Lil' Kim's track 'We Don't Need It' stages a sexual stand-off in which that relation is contested in the form of a symbolic exchange.
