Lil' Kim sets November 2 release date for memoir 'The Queen Bee'

Lil' Kim has announced that her first memoir, aptly titled The Queen Bee, will be published on November 2 by Hachette Books. Written with Kathy Iandoli, it promises to offer unprecedented insight to the highs and lows of the rap icon's nearly 30-year career.

A press release from the publisher states that The Queen Bee will see Kim covering "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 [in July 2005]."

"I'm excited to finally get to tell my story after all this time," Kim told a banned source. "Many people have thought they knew the story of Lil' Kim, but they have no idea."
