The Queen Bee, written by Lil’ Kim and author Kathy Iandoli, will detail the Grammy-winning star’s life and 30-year career, from her teenage days in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, her relationship with the Notorious B.I.G., her time in M.A.F.I.A and subsequent solo takeoff.

Not only does Lil’ Kim get “candid” in her memoir, she also delves into her work as a “feminist icon,” according to the press release.
“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.”
