Rapper Lil Kim is facing perjury charges after allegedly
lying to investigators about a February 2001 shooting that took place in front
of Hot 97’s offices in Manhattan.
The rapper is expected to surrender to authorities
on charges related to the shooting. Kim is among five people indicted by a grand
Kim and two other people are expected to turn
themselves in today as well. The other two are already incarcerated.
Police claim a feud between Lil Kim and Foxy Brown sparked the daylight shoot
out. Authorities suspect one of the trigger men drove back to Kim’s home and
dumped the weapons.
Kim told authorities she didn’t know what led
to the shoot out. Police searched her midtown offices on Monday (April 12) where
according to sources, she reached a deal with prosecutors to surrender today.
Sources stated that Kim’s arrest is part of an
ongoing FBI investigation into crimes in the rap industry.
In related news, Kim is slated to perform alongside
Twista and Fabolous at a Memorial Day concert in Ocala, Florida. Organizers
expect at least 12,000 people to attend.
