Yeah, we've heard this story before actually. Let's see if it actually happens this time.
It sounds like Lil Kim is going to try and write a memoir again, after she notoriously left publishing company Simon & Schuester hanging three years and forced their hand in suing her after she spent the advance without turning in a single page. The rapper has a new deal now with a new publishing company that is hoping to get a memoir out as soon as possible, though no release date has been set.
In addition, a documentary is in the works to follow Lil Kim around as she reflects on the past, namely her time in prison and the start of her career. The doc doesn't have a title yet, but the book does: The Price of Loyalty.
Sometimes that price is pretty high! Kim talked about both projects during a recent interview with Kay Slay’s Streetsweeper Radioshow, saying:
“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. 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.”
Take your time, then. Do this right. Plan shiz out. And don't be taking money from people if you have no plans on doing either of these projects seriously. We don't think you can afford to get sued again!
