Kim has made an undeniable impact in the Hip Hop community from her racy lyrics to iconic fashion moments. In the issue, the femcee discusses the impact she’s made on the culture.

“When I first got into hip-hop, I never knew that it would take me this far. It was something I loved to do, so, I just did it, and here we are,” she tells the publication.

“Everyone calls me an icon, and it’s an honor to me. It makes me smile. It makes me happy to know that people look at me that way because I never really saw that for myself, but it just happened organically, and this is my place in hip-hop,” she continues.

Kim confirms there is a documentary in the works, as well as a book deal. The legendary rapper will tell her story, on her own terms.
