One fan wrote "lil krimlin album sales". Another Twitter user wrote "The GP really went in on Nicki Minaj for selling 185k first week & debuting at #2 w/Queen but they “Queen of Rap” Lil Kim sold less than 1K copies and didn’t even debut in the Top 20 and than Kim really thinks she still has a torch to pass? Nicki took that sh*t over a decade ago."
Another fan wrote "Yall dragging Lil Kim's sales like we in 1996. That lady is WELL outside her prime. And yes that album is trash but come on lol. None of the female rappers from the 90s are pushing any type of numbers in 2019".

Lil' Kim will FOREVER be a LEGEND! No sales or gimmicks (that other people use...) will change that!— MARIAH KNIGHTS (@mariahknights) October 20, 2019
Her staple runs deep. She is the one that inspired the girls of today. Whether they like her or not, you can’t have a conversation about women in hip hop with mentioning the impact she has had in the industry. https://t.co/sSAHfeH3wr— Clarinet Section Leader ♊️ (@clarinetpro87) October 21, 2019
