Speaking about her project, Lil’ Kim said,

“I’m excited to finally get to tell my story after all this time.”

She continued,

“Many people have thought they knew the story of Lil’ Kim, but they have no idea.”

With the release of The Queen Bee on November 2nd, fans will get the opportunity to have a personal look into Lil’ Kim‘s life and experiences. Her memoir is available for pre-order via Hachette Books’ website.
