Lil Kim recently received the “I AM HIP HOP” award at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards event. The television network helped to celebrate her illustrious career. There have been people wondering if the female rapper would ever get a biopic about her life. It was recently announced that Lifetime Network would be releasing a biopic about the career of female rap group Salt ‘N Pepa.
Lil’ Kim spoke about being approached to do a a biopic in the past, but she wasn’t interested at the time. In an interview with “The Real”, the New York hip hop artist stated, “I’ve gotten so many offers,” she said. “I’m talking, major offers… even BET, Lifetime, Lionsgate. But the thing is, I had to be ready, and I think now I’m ready to tell the story.”
Even the late director of classic films sucha s Boyz N The Hood believed in creating a Lil Kim biopic. According to Lil Kim, “Him and I went [to a party]. He was like, ‘I want you to be my celebrity date.’ But I knew what that meant. He wants to talk, right? So he said to me, ‘Kim, why aren’t we doing this movie? You’re a walking best-seller.’ And I was like, ‘Well, I’m waiting for you.’ I said to him, I always said if I did a movie about my life, I’m not doing it with anybody but you. And then he passed away.”
