L'il Kim Released from Federal Detention Center. Happy Independence Day!

"Today is a joyous day for me and my family. I am extremely grateful and happy to be home," said rapper Lil' Kim in a statement. "I'd like to thank the city of Philadelphia for the overwhelming support that I received, in addition to the staff at the FDC and all of my supporters. Many special thanks go out to my fans who were critical in helping me get through these past 10 months. I am looking forward to adjusting back to my normal life and getting back to work."

The rapper known as L'il Kim has been released from the Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia. On Monday, July 3, 2006 Kimberly Jones, the rapper known as the "Queen of Rap", was freed from a federal detention center after nearly ten months. Jones was sentenced to serve 366 days of incarceration after lying to a grand jury over an incident which occurred outside a New York radio station, Hot 97 FM, in which a man was injured when gunshots were fired.(See youthinkwhat.com Tuesday, September 20, 2005). She was released a little over two months early for good behaviour. Jones will be under house arrest for the next month. She is expected to be under supervised release for the next three years.
"She has accepted responsibility and handled herself in an exemplary manner"-this according to Jones' attorney, L. Londell McMillan.

As much as I appreciate and love the culture of hip-hop & rap of this generation, I don't appreciate the violent side of it which seems to attach itself. In watching the reality show shown on BET at time before her incarceration of the 14 days before her imprisonment--Kim struck me as someone of strength and a lot of love for others in her life. She is a professional and works hard at being "Lil Kim". I do hope her time away gave her the opportunity to look deep inside herself and analyze her life and where she needs to change and be about making those changes for the good of her future.
