Lil’ Kim gets ready for jail in new reality series

lil-kim-prison.JPGAs far as reality shows go, the new six-part BET series “Lil’ Kim: Countdown to Lockdown” should be pretty original. It follows the short-statured, high-expletive rapper in the two weeks right before she’s locked away for lying to a grand jury.

The bad news: The cameras stop rolling once she gets inside the slammer, keeping the pillow fights, mud wrestling, and lesbionic activites of female prison out of American households. The good news: A kickin’ hip-hop soundtrack that’ll be bumpin’ over shots of Lil’ Kim crying.
