What went wrong?
Lil’ Kim was charged with conspiracy and perjury in 2005 and consequently went to jail for a year. But that did not stop her much, as she wrote more then 200 songs during her time as a jailbird and she managed to release album The Naked Truth. The album did not do as well as her previous work, but it did sell 2 million copies worldwide.
When she was released from jail 5 parties were thrown in her honor. Recently Lil’ Kim ended her feud with 50 Cent and recorded a track with him and seems to enjoy subjecting herself to plastic surgery. It can be addictive you know. She is also rumored to involved with Ray J (of Kim Kardashian sex tape fame).
