Lil’ Kim plans to make moves after 30 days of house arrest

Lil’ Kim, born Kimberly Jones was sentenced to 366 days in prison for lying to a grand jury about a daytime shooting at New York’s Hot 97 radio station. Kim was released early after serving 10 months in a Philadelphia prison for perjury due to her good behavior. Let’s say that again good behavior, it does pay off to act with some sense. According to Lil’ Kim’s representatives she will be released from a 30 day sentence of house arrest on August 3, 2006 which was part of the conditions of her parole after being released from prison July 3, 2006.

Being in prison has never stopped rap artists from continuing their careers and it was nothing different for New York native Lil’ Kim, according to reports she has been running her various businesses from her attorney’s office which is L. Londell McMillan. McMillan has stated that Lil’ Kim is now developing a prisoner outreach initiative through her Lil’ Kim Cares Foundation. This shows that the situation that she was in has had an effect on her life; spending time behind bars with no chance for growth can lead a person to new beginnings, which is the case for Kim.

Along with the prison outreach project Kim is also searching for a new record deal, getting business training and editing footage from Lil’ Kim: Countdown to Lockdown, which is a reality show on the BET network. Kim’s reality show had orginially six-episodes but since the show which debuted on March 9, 2006 brought 1.9 million viewers, making it the most watched original series in BET’s history, they decided to bring it back for a second season.

Kim the Brooklyn rapper has seen a number of situations turn bad in her career, from her great beginning with rap legend Biggie, to her fall out with neighborhood friends turned rap group, Junior Mafia. After all she has been through, Lil’ Kim has kept her head up and pushed forward knowing that only she can break her career, but more importantly only she can make herself move forward.
