Lil Kim is having a busy year hosting a TV series, appearing in a movie and publishing her autobiography. The Queen Bee reveals that the man behind her career now is also a versatile entertainer: Nick Cannon.
The “Magic Stick” rapper made the revelation during the latest episode of Complex’s interview series Hiking with Rappers.
“Nick Cannon, people don’t even know, like he’s one of my best friends. We’ve been best friends for years,” Kim says. “We just shot a movie called Miracle Across 125th Street. I really did that movie for Nick, but I love doing movies.”
“It’s part of my next level,” she added. “Nick is convincing me.”
The Christmas film was shot during the summer and features gospel artists Fred Hammond, Karen Clark Sheard and Kierra Sheard, plus comedians Marsha Warfield, Lunell and Bruce Bruce. Cannon stars in Miracle Across 125th Street as well as serving as executive producer.
Kim has appeared in several films during her 25-year career, including She’s All That, You Got Served, and Zoolander. Currently, she’s hosting the BET+ series American Gangster: Trap Queens, and she’s featured on the Legendz of the Streez tour headlined by Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Jeezy and Gucci Mane.
The Grammy winner has also written her autobiography, The Queen Bee, which will be published November 2.
