“Wanna bumble with the bee, huh?” On Wednesday, Lil Kim exclusively announced to PEOPLE that she is releasing a memoir, “The Queen Bee. The book will be co-written with Kathy Iandoli, and will be published by Hachette Books on Nov. 2, the site reports.
“I’m excited to finally get to tell my story after all this time,” Lil’ Kim stated to PEOPLE. She continued, “Many people have thought they knew the story of Lil’ Kim, but they have no idea.”
According to PEOPLE, the book will detail Lil’ Kim’s 30-year career and the ups and downs of the industry.
“Lil’ Kim not only blazed trails for women in hip-hop, but also inspired the careers of those who followed,” the site reports. “However, life at the top hasn’t been easy, either.
The memoir will also discuss Lil’ Kim “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.”
“The Queen Bee” is said to be a “true page-turner from start to finish, The Queen Bee is 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.”
“The Queen Bee” is set to be released November 2, 2021.
