After almost three decades in the game, hip hop icon Lil Kim is ready to tell her side of the story.

The Brooklyn femcee and fashion maven has announced that she is set to release her memoir The Queen Bee via Hachette Books on November 2.

“I’m excited to finally get to tell my story after all this time,” the rapper told People, who first shared the news. “Many people have thought they knew the story of Lil’ Kim, but they have no idea.”

IT’S FINALLY HERE!! That’s right, the book, Lil’ Kim The Queen Bee Life Story. Dropping in November!! You thought you knew me but you have no idea 😉 Thank you @kath3000 and @HachetteBooks for helping me get my story out. ❤️ Pre-order now! — Lil' Kim (@LilKim) April 28, 2021

Here is ‘s what the publisher’s had to say about the upcoming project:

“Lil’ Kim not only blazed trails for women in Hip-Hop, but also inspired the careers of those who followed. However, life at the top hasn’t been easy, either. Lil’ Kim also talks about the hidden moments of her reign: her complicated high-profile relationships, the misogynistic industry she fought to change through sex positivity, the challenging double standards of self-image and beauty in the spotlight, and the momentous act of loyalty that ultimately landed her in prison.”

When the memoir drops, I want all the tea about growing up in Bed Stuy, her relationship with Biggie, what she went through when she went to jail for refusing to snitch, her come up in the music industry as the first lady of Junior M.A.F.I.A and as a solo artist, her infamous rap beefs with Foxy Brown and Nicki Minaj, Naturi Naughton’s portrayal of her in the Notorious B.I.G. biopic, and speaking of which, I also hope per the memoir’s success that we’ll also get a biopic.
