Lil' Kim Sells Out Resorts World & BBD With Valentines Day Concert

This past Sunday on Valentine’s Day, February 14, at 5 p.m., Resorts World Casino New York City (RWNYC) hosted a sold-out performance by Lil’ Kim and Bell Biv Devoe (BBD) for one of the biggest Valentine’s Day parties in casino history.
 
Scores of hip-hop and rap fans from across the City came to celebrate the holiday with a special someone while jamming out to the chart-topping rap and hip-hop of Lil’ Kim and BBD. The performance was part of the Soul Da Javu NYC Ultimate VIP Day Party series and presented by NYC Dream Team.
 
Lil’ Kim is best known as a rapper, songwriter, and record producer, as well as model and actress. Her debut album, “Hard Core,” went double platinum and was the source of three consecutive #1 rap its – “No Time,” “Not Tonight (Ladies Night remix)” and “Crush on You,” breaking records for a female rapper. Her following three albums were certified platinum as well.
 
BBD, the splinter trio of New Edition, also performed. BBD produced its debut album, “Poison,” with help from the producers of Public Enemy, on MCA Records, being among the first to experiment with the “new jack swing” sound of the early 1990’s – a combination of hip-hop, funk, soul and pop. The album topped Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
 
“The show was a raging success,” said Michelle Stoddart, Director of PR & Community Development at Resorts World Casino. “We were excited to host these nationally acclaimed hip hop and rap artists for music fans from all over and look forward to hosting future shows in this genre.”
 
The show also featured Jagged Edge and Kid Capri.

Lil’ Kim performs at the Central Park Event Space on Valentine’s Day on Sunday, February 14, 2016.
