American rapper and actress, Lil’ Kim has an estimated net worth of $18 million. One of the few female stars in hardcore rap, Lil’ Kim is known just as much for her tangles with the law, censors, and fashion police. She got her start with the help of her former boyfriend Notorious B.I.G. and rappers Junior M.A.F.I.A.. After making her presence known on Junior M.A.F.I.A., she went solo in 1996 with the album Hard Core, which included the rap hit “No Time,” a duet with Sean “Diddy” Combs. As the album’s title implies, Kim was a rarity among female rappers — one who not only concentrated on edgy hardcore rap but also explicit sexuality, two territories that had long been the province of male rappers. Of course, Kim’s hard-edged rhythms made her an anomaly within hip-hop, but Hard Core proved that she was no novelty, as it garnered positive reviews and strong sales. A native of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn; born July 11, 1974. In 2005, she served a year long prison sentence for lying to a jury about her friends’ involvement in a shooting four years earlier. During her incarceration, her fourth album The Naked Truth was released. Lil’ Kim returned to the public spotlight in 2009 with an appearance on Dancing with the Stars.
