“Lil ‘Kim not only paved the way for women in hip-hop, but also inspired the careers of those who followed,” the website reports. “But life at the top wasn’t easy either.
The memoir also discusses Lil ‘Kim’s “hidden moments of her reign”: her intricate, high-profile relationships, the misogynist industry she struggled to transform through sexual positivity, the challenging double standards of self-image and beauty in the spotlight, and the meaningful act of loyalty who ultimately put her in jail. “
“The Queen Bee” is supposed to be a “real page turner” from start to finish. As wild, empowering, and evil as the woman at the center of this story, The Queen Bee cemented her legacy as a true feminist icon. “
