Lil' Kim

"How Many Licks" rapper Lil' Kim held nothing back when expressing her digust for how she was depicted in the 2009 biopic Notorious, based on the life of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. The femcee complained that there were many lies and false portrayals of her in the movie. "The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a 'character' to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent," she said.
