Lil' Kim Charged
Rapper Lil Kim has been charged with conspiracy to commit perjury, obstruction of justice and making false statements.
The allegations stem from a shooting incident in February 2001 outside the Hot 97 radio station in New York. Lil' Kim, real name Kimberly Jones, turned herself in after being indicted by a grand jury, is accused of lying to investigators after she was questioned regarding the shooting of rapper Efrain Ocasio. Kim is also being charged with testifying falsely to a grand jury regarding the incident. Prosecutors have accused her of lying about her relationship with two men who were involved in the incident.
Police have said the shooting was a result of a feud between Kim and rival rapper Foxy Brown. Kim's attorney, Mel Sachs, has called the charges "baseless".
