Inside Move: Rapper is ripe for reality

Lil' Kim keeps it real before prison

Before rapper Lil’ Kim begins a yearlong prison term, she’ll wrap — what else? — a reality show counting down her final days of freedom.

Edmonds Entertainment principal Tracey Edmonds (“Soul Food”) is exec producing the project, tentatively titled “Lil’ Kim Goes to the Big House.” Kim’s attorney L. Londell McMillan, Hillary Westin and Michael McQuarn also exec produce.

Kim, nee Kimberly Jones, was sentenced to 366 days in the slammer when she was convicted on federal perjury and conspiracy charges after she lied to a grand jury about a 2001 shootout between her entourage and that of rival Foxy Brown.

At least five networks have expressed interest in acquiring the finished product, per Edmonds, who has been filming Kim for the past two weeks.

Docudrama will feature Kim as she prepares for jail, all the while hyping her forthcoming album, “The Naked Truth,” remodeling her home, and co-hosting a party with Marc Jacobs during New York Fashion Week.

“How fascinating would it have been if cameras had been following Martha Stewart around before she went to jail?,” Edmonds said.

Edmonds said Kim gave her team round-the-clock access. Production on the one-hour episodes will continue until Monday, when Kim is to begin her sentence.
