Celebrity photographer Derek Blanks has done it again!
Blanks recently shared a few photos online of rapper Lil Mama rocking a softer, gentler look.
Lil Mama (aka?Niatia Jessica Kirkland) is riding high off her successful portrayal of Atlanta’s own Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes in the TLC biopic ‘CrazySexyCool’ (click HERE if you missed it).
And while many had doubts about her acting ability, Lil Mama took it all in stride and said knew she would prove the naysayers wrong.
?It never hurt me? Lil Mama told Sister 2 Sister.
?People always doubted what I could be since I was kid, and I?ve always overcome that. I always proved them wrong because I know I can do it.?
