Lil’ Kim Opens Up About Surprise Pregnancy And 2005 Incarceration

Back in February fans were shocked to learn that Brooklyn rapper Lil’ Kim is pregnant with her first child. 

Kim recently opened up about working through her pregnancy and how the baby pretty much dictates when she works and when she doesn’t.

“The baby dictates what days I go to the studio. I did work in the earlier stages of [my pregnancy]. My belly is pretty out there right now, but, I’m still working,” the 39-year-old mom-to-be told Billboard.

Kim also briefly discussed being incarcerated back in 2005.

“I don’t regret anything in my life. They are things I wish I would have done differently but I don’t regret how I handled the situation. I don’t regret it. 

Being who I am, is who I am. At the end of the day, my character is my character. I’m not going to change that for nobody.”

As for the advice she received from the Notorious B.I.G.:

“B.I.G. was sure I was good long-term. He wanted me to be the top b**** in the game. He named me Queen B***h. In the studio he’d show me things about rapping and music. 

He knew that I idolized him and he’s who I wanted to be. I would watch him in awe. He was so amazing to me to watch: His energy and they way he moved as a big guy. 

He was very smart; His mom being a teacher probably had something to do with that. B.I.G. is B.I.G.”
