Here’s Who Lil’ Kim Wants to Play Her in a Biopic

During an interview with Essence Wednesday (Jan. 20), Lil’ Kim buzzed about Teyana Taylor’s potential to play her in either a documentary or narrative biopic (although Kim sees both in her future).

“I want people to really understand, do you know what I mean? It can only be a girl that’s from the ‘hood that I’m from,” the Brooklyn-born hip-hop legend explained. “I love Teyana. She’s my only other thought. There’s nobody else in the industry at all but Teyana.”

Although Taylor was raised in Harlem, Kim said she would “love to give some little girls from Brooklyn a chance so I can connect.”

Taylor confirmed her retirement from music shortly before hosting the Billboard Women in Music event in December, so Spike Tee might have more time to explore her acting and maybe even directing skills. Taylor took home the award for video director of the year at the 2020 BET Awards in June.

The stories of women in hip-hop have been retold on TV over the past few years, with Roxanne Shanté getting her biopic Roxanne Roxanne on Netflix in 2018 and Salt-N-Pepa’s self-titled biopic hitting Lifetime on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
