The new hot single "Download" starring urFooz and Lil' Kim is currently in the Top 10 on iTunes most popular downloads and has just been released.

Throughout the video, Lil' Kim is hanging out on her couch and using her Fooz Avatar and Card to consolidate her favorite music, photos, feeds, videos, and to communicate with her Fooz Friend, T-Pain. The video features T-Pain singing and rapping to Lil' Kim via an animated T-Pain Fooz Avatar.
