Lil' Kim


Grammy Award-winning artist Lil' Kim (born Kimberly Jones) rose to fame as the protégé of the late, great Notorious B.I.G. This petite lyricist held her own in the all-male rap group Junior M.A.F.I.A., delivering some of the most profound sexual lyrics ever from a female rapper. Her solo debut "Hard Core" started a whole new movement for women in hip hop. The Queen Bee’s BET reality show "Lil' Kim: Countdown to Lockdown" gave her fans an inside look into her last days of freedom before spending 366 days in jail. She later appeared on "Dancing with the Stars." The self-proclaimed "Black Barbie" has collaborated with P. Diddy, 50 Cent and Christina Aguilera.
