Lil' Kim to Get Out of Jail Early

FRIDAY JUNE 30, 2006 10:00AM EST

Lil' Kim, sentenced in September 2005 to a year and a day in prison for lying to a grand jury, will released Monday, the day before the Fourth of July.

"I am thrilled to be coming home," Lil' Kim (real name: Kimberly Jones) said in a statement issued Thursday by her rep, Tracy Nguyen. "I thank all my fans for all their letters, as well as my family and friends for all their support throughout the past 10 months."

After her release from Philadelphia Federal Detention Center on July 3 at 6 a.m., she will remain under house arrest for 30 days.

Backstage at Tuesday night's BET Awards, Lil' Kim's mother, Ruby, and brother Christopher announced that the rapper was scheduled for early release next week.

Lil' Kim, 30, was convicted of lying to a federal grand jury about a shootout outside a Manhattan radio station and began her sentence on Sept. 19, 2005. Her entertainment lawyer, L. Londell McMillan, noted at the time that she could be released early for good behavior.

"We are pleased that Kim is coming home to start the next phase of her life," McMillan said in the statement issued Thursday. "She has accepted responsibility and handled herself in an exemplary manner."

Her case stemmed from a gun battle between Lil' Kim's entourage and rival rap group Capone-N-Noreaga. One man was injured.

Lil' Kim told a jury that she hadn't seen two friends – who later pleaded guilty to gun charges – at the scene. But security photos showed one of the friends opening a door for her, and witnesses said they saw her at the station with both of them, the Associated Press reports.

It's such bullshit she went to jail. People lie under oath every day and nothing happens.

Although I don't agree with most of her lyrics I do respect her for practicing what she and other rappers preach. In the hip hop community they encourage youth to adhere to a policy called "stop snitching" http://www.stopsnitching.com/. Kim could've avoided jail time if she snitched but then she and many other rappers would be hypocrites.

What the bullshit really was that this case was in federal court. If the shooting happened in any neighborhood other than the Upper East Side, Upper West Side, SoHo (where the shooting happened), Morningside Heights or Sutton Place, the case would have been heard in state court, she would have pleaded guilty and gotten probation.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"
