This season’s Dancing With The Stars contestant, rapper Lil’ Kim has a full plate. She is not only busy in rehearsals with her pro partner Derek Hough, but she is also working hard on her fifth album which she hopes to release sometime this year.
“I’m getting ready to come with a whole new flavor, a whole new style,” Lil’ Kim told MTV last month. “And I don’t care what nobody says, I’m not gonna let anyone pigeonhole me. This is what it is. I’m coming with it,I’m gonna be singing, I’m gonna be flowing. Whatever I feel. It’s not gonna be so strategic or placed. It’s gonna be whatever I feel. I’m gonna have fun on my next album. It’s coming soon. Really soon.”
Lil’ Kim began her solo career in 1996 anda won a Grammy Award in 2001 for her hit single, Lady Marmalade. In March 2005, she was found guilty of conspiracy and perjury for lying to a grand jury about her friends’ involvement in a 2001 Manhattan shooting. She was sentenced to serve one-year-and-one-day in the Philadelphia Detention Center and during her time in prison she releasedher fourth album, The Naked Truth, in September 2005. She said that she wrote more than 200 songs while she was detained.
Lil’ Kim has been known for a few signature moves throughout her career but has never been one to lean towards super-choreographed videos and performances so we are sure she will bring a “whole new flavor” to Dancing With The Stars too.
