Lil Kim’s biopic is slated to hit the silver screen. During the Notorious B.I.G.’s posthumous 50th birthday celebration, the fellow Bad Boy labelmate confirmed that her life story will be on-screen for fans to learn more about her. On the red carpet of the event, which she hosted, the Queen Bee confirmed the biographical movie, saying “absolutely” such a project is in the works. The film will reportedly chronicle her transformation from a modest Macy’s clerk to a renowned Grammy-winning Hip Hop star.
Kim noted that the body of work will closely trail the release of her upcoming memoir, which is slated to hit shelves later this year. In the book, co-authored by Kathi Iandoli, the 47-year-old unveils the intimate details of her undying love for Biggie despite his marriage to singer Faith Evans at the time of his death. As for who will portray Kim in the biopic, the famed rapper says she’s not ready to reveal that information just yet – if it’s even decided.

However, they soon sparked dating rumors after a video of them fondling during a studio session was shared on social media and went viral. They kept num about their relationship until February this year when the “Ghanama” hitmaker took to Instagram to share images of her and Master KG enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner in celebration of Valentine’s Day.
