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 jury.
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.
