You won't believe what Lil' Kim looks like now

Updated: 

Lil' Kim has unveiled a dramatic new look.

The rapper posted a montage of selfies on Instagram where she sported bleach blond hair and a significantly lighter complexion.

The rapper looks notably different in this snap taken before Kanye West's Yeezy show three months ago.

She's almost unrecognisable from shots taken of her ten years ago.

The selfies immediately prompted a mixed response on Twitter, with many fans leaping to her defence.

The rapper dropped her new mixtape Lil Kim Season last month.
