Lil Kim Says Teyana Taylor Could Play Her In A Biopic
(Essence) We’ve entered an era where Black women are finally getting their flowers and that extends to women in Hip-Hop. From Roxanne Roxanne on Netflix to Lifetime’s upcoming biopic, Salt-N-Pepa, the stories of women in rap are taking front and center, and rightfully so.
Of course, you can’t talk about influential women in rap without mentioning the Queen Bee. And Lil Kim told us she might be next in line for her own biographical drama.
“I have a secret but I can’t you,” Kim says coyly during an interview for season two of the BET+ series American Gangster: Trap Queens which she narrates. “It’s dealing with me and my life a little bit, kinda.”
While most celebrities aim for big-name actresses to tell their story, Kim is leaning toward an unknown thespian to depict her. “It can only be a girl that’s from the hood that I’m from,” the Bed-Stuy native says before dropping her celebrity pick. “I love Teyana, she’s my only other thought. There’s nobody else in the industry at all but Teyana. But, even before Teyana — I love Teyana, but she’s from Harlem –before Teyana, I would love to give some little girls from Brooklyn a chance so I can connect. Really connect.”
Though she can’t share exact details of the project, the Hardcore rapper says she sees her story being told in documentary and biopic form. “I want people to know the real Kim. All the stories that everybody else tells, chile, don’t listen to it.”

People Magazine Interview
Kimberly Denise Jones, a.k.a. Lil Kim, is often credited as one of the most iconic rappers of all time after she single-handedly broke the glass ceiling for a new style of women in the hip-hop industry.
In season two of American Gangster: Trap Queens on BET+, Lil' Kim tells the stories of women who worked tirelessly to overcome their life's struggles — much like the star. Abandoned by her father at just 13 years old, Lil' Kim, 46, tells PEOPLE how she powered through a difficult childhood as well as mentally and physically abusive relationships to become the trailblazer she is today. The hitmaker also opens up about her longtime love and collaborator, the late Biggie Smalls, and tells PEOPLE the hilarious story behind the unforgettable lavender outfit she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards.
"A lot of these girls' stories are so similar to mine," she tells PEOPLE. "I wanted to come home and my dad was like, 'Oh no, you ran away? Stay your ass in the street.' I was doing some of those same things at a very young age. My life was that way anyway, so I was having fun, but it was dangerous."
