It’s no surprise that networks and production companies, such as Lionsgate, BET and Lifetime would be interested in a Lil Kim biopic. She has a career that began with legend Notorious B.I.G. and spanned over twenty years; resulting in platinum albums and even a Grammy award for 2002’s smash hit “Lady Marmalade”, which also featured Mya, Pink and Christina Aguilera.
Her debut album, Hardcore has sold over five million copies worldwide and is still regarded as one of the best rap albums of all time. However, despite many offers from major companies, Kim recently sat down with The Real to reveal that John Singleton was the only film producer whom she would entrust with her biopic. The two attended a party together, where Singleton pitched the idea to Kim, referring to her as a “walking best-seller.”
Sadly, Singleton passed away from a stroke earlier this year before the pair had a chance to move forward with the project. While the film won’t be handled by the only person Kim saw fit for the job, the Queen Bee stated she was ready to tell her story. When that biopic does drop, the world will sure to be watching.
