    Kim Really Is The Queen B. Her Rhymes On This cd is amazing. The production is really great, it also comes with a stack of lyrical superpowers. She sounds more developed into a new style on this album. La Bella Mafia Is One Of The Top Albums Of 2003 Released.

    One of her most precious albums, Perfect rhythm and sound. She had so much say in this album and produced and organised 95 percent of the album. Classic album! She also had no backing from diddy or aanyone else with this. it was all kimmy! Queen bee! Hip Hop's Leading Lady!!

    LOVED THIS ALBUM!!! She was independent on this project! She did all of it her own! and she delivered. this is one of those albums,, where if you lose it you'd go out and buy it again rather than download it online! Kim pis and always will be the queen of rap!

  1. Catastrophically, she's given up her trademark fruity sex rhymes, which leaves just mundane braggadocio and an unhealthy obsession with her ex-lover, Notorious BIG. [May 2003, p.109]
  2. 40
    Foul-mouthed, egocentric rhymes and nondescript beats. [Jun 2003, p.91]
  3. Beats-wise, 'La Bella Mafia' is easily the strongest thing she's done, and it seems like Kim has raised her rapping game to match the strength of the music.
