In a recent interview, female hip hop veteran Lil’ Kim reveals she plans to release a new book about her prison-stint and a new documentary that will answer many unanswered questions. The 37 year-old rapper spoke to Chicago’s Morning Riot revealing her plans for a new sound:

“I got a bunch of singles that we’re getting ready to throw out in a few seconds.” “We’re going to throw out a few singles first so we can get everybody familiar with my new sound. I have a documentary that I’m going to put out and that’s going to explain a lot of things where people can stop asking me silly questions and stuff like that. When I put the documentary out, a lot of questions will be answered. I still have my book deal with St. Martin’s Press which is solely about my stay in prison.”
