Lil’ Kim is one of the most discussed names in music and now she’s set to tell her story on her terms.
After being the subject of headlines for almost 30 years, the pioneering femcee has announced her memoir – ‘The Queen Bee.’
Full story below…
Set for release via Hatchett Books on November 2, the book – which is co-written with Kathy Iandoli – promises to deliver an unfiltered look into the life of one of female Rap’s most iconic architects.
Per the publisher:
“Lil’ Kim not only blazed trails for women in Hip-Hop, but also inspired the careers of those who followed. However, life at the top hasn’t been easy, either. Lil’ Kim also talks about the hidden moments of her reign: her complicated high-profile relationships, the misogynistic industry she fought to change through sex positivity, the challenging double standards of self-image and beauty in the spotlight, and the momentous act of loyalty that ultimately landed her in prison.”
Some will recall Kim’s disapproval of her depiction in the Notorious B.I.G. 2009 biopic. She promised to take the helm of her narrative via the memoir medium and has honored that.
Billed as “a true page-turner from start to finish,” ‘The Queen Bee’ is will reportedly be “as every bit as fierce, empowering, and badass as the woman at the heart of this story — and firmly cements her legacy as a true feminist icon.”

We’re buzzed for this. Especially if she commits to keeping it all the way 100.
