Lil Kim Working On Book/Documentary
Brooklyn, New York rapper Lil’ Kim has announced that she is working on a brand-new book and a documentary.
According to Lil Kim, the untitled release may come as a package, which will focus on her life, as well as her “comeback,” after serving a year in federal prison.
During an interview with Kay Slay’s Street Sweeper Radio on Shade 45, Lil Kim revealed details about the book/documentary.
“It’s going to be released with my book ‘The Price of Loyalty’,” Lil Kim revealed. “I am not sure if I’m going to separate that documentary from that book. That’s what we’re trying to figure out right now.”
Lil Kim served a year in a Philadelphia federal prison, for lying to a grand jury about her knowledge of a broad daylight shootout.
The violent incident took place in front of Hot 97, during an altercation with Foxy Brown’s crew and members of Capone and Noreaga’s entourage.
The release will detail the rapper’s life after the incident and the trials and tribulations she faced while going through her various legal issues.
“I’ve been independent, you know I left my record company two years ago. I was in another situation and that’s going to be in the documentary as well and why it took so long,” Lil Kim said. “I’ve been doing everything myself and quite frankly, for me to not have the backing, or the budget that I used to have, for me to be able to still move the way I move and be relevant the way I am, I feel blessed.”
This is not Lil Kim’s first attempt at writing a book.
In 2008, Lil Kim was sued by Simon & Schuster for failing to deliver her memoirs to the book publisher.
Now that all of her legal issues are behind her, Lil Kim is looking forward to releasing the new memoirs, which may come in as many as four installments.
“When I did my [first] book deal they were basically like ‘we want the Kim life story.’ But my lawyers were like ‘no, no, that’s like four different checks.” ‘Cause [my story is] to be continued, to be continued, to be continued.”
A release date for Lil Kim’s untitled book/documentary “The Price of Loyalty” was not available as of press time.
