Lil’ Kim Seeks Release from Atlantic Records
Lil’ Kim is reportedly unhappy with her situation at Atlantic Records, and is seeking a release from her contract, according to a report from MTV. In a statement, her lawyer L. Londell McMillan commented, “We are having discussions which I cannot confirm the details [of] at this time. However, we do wish Atlantic would release and simply free Kim.” McMillan’s statement contradicts recent rumors that Kim had already been dropped by the label as a result of lackluster sales of her fourth studio LP, The Naked Truth. The Brooklyn rapper was incarcerated on federal perjury charges just days before the release of the album, and as a result had little opportunity to promote the project. In related news, Kim is currently working on the second season of her BET reality series Countdown To Lockdown, which will document her release from the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia on July 3rd and her subsequent return home.
