Lil’ Kim announced she’ll be releasing her first-ever memoir, The Queen Bee, this fall. The book, written by Kim and author Kathy Iandoli, will be published by Hachette Books on November 2.
“I’m excited to finally get to tell my story after all this time,” Lil’ Kim tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Many people have thought they knew the story of Lil’ Kim, but they have no idea.”
The book will cover 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.
