Single Review: Monica ft Rick Ross and Lil Kim – Anything (To Find You)
This is an absolutely incredible collaboration right here: Monica, Rick Ross and Lil Kim with Anything To Have You, which was released in October 2011. Old skool singer Monica shows us she still got it with her powerful but also beautiful voice. She has been singing since the age of thirteen and has been one of the best female vocalists ever since. Female rapper Lil Kim aka Queen Bee has also had a strong comeback on this one and everybody is saying now Nicki Minaj is on the scene that Lil Kim can no longer be the Queen Of Rap. I think she most definitely can, and if anything, you could say that Nicki Minaj has been heavily influenced by Lil Kim. Finally Rick Ross, who is one of today’s most popular rappers and also one of the best, makes an appearance too. He has only been on the music scene since 2006 but with the success he has achieved, you would not think that at all.
Together, these guys have re-mastered the 1995 hip-hop classic Who Shot Ya by the legendary Notorious B.I.G and put their own little twist on it. To me this is one of the best things anybody could have done. Put together three of the best artists one of Biggie’s classics? Just wow. Even though there is quite a heavy hip-hop beat, it suits Monica’s voice really well, because if you listen carefully they have added a soft piano in the background to make it sound a bit more feminine. Lil Kim has had the IT factor ever since she joined Junior M.A.F.I.A in 1995, which is when she began her career in music. Her rap style has not changed since then. This is a good thing because she gives that extra old skool twist on this track and to me, old skool is new skool! It’s the best and I want to hear more. Overall, this is definitely one to listen out for.
