I would love to see some kind of affinity…I was a first-time actress in a film. This was the beginning of my career. I’m a little black girl from Jersey, why not uplift and support that?”

Lil Kim has a real chip on her shoulder, I think that’s pretty clear. The thing is, she was offered a chance to have creative input in the film. She chose not to have any. She can’t blame Naturi, who made it clear that she was just an actress trying to earn her spot in the industry.
