It’s the first Monday of March, but because Mother Nature hates us, the New York and the rest of the Northeast still feels like deep January. It’s not much better if you’re out of the West Coast of the United States either; you’re weekend got ruined by rain. Paris weather is pretty sh*tty right now too.

Either way, getting out of bed to go to work is the last thing you wanted to do today. But you did, and to congratulate you on your accomplishment and help you power through the afternoon, here’s SlamXXX, a set of beautiful pictures of beautiful women.

This week it’s Lil Kim. No, not mangled 2014 Lil Kim, but back in the day while she was still super hot and driving Biggie crazy. She’s in the gallery above. Enjoy.
