When it comes to casting her biopic — which she’s obliquely hinted is coming — Lil’ Kim wants to keep it close to home.
“It can only be a girl that’s from the hood that I’m from [to portray me],” Kim told Essence. “There’s nobody else in the industry at all but Teyana.” But the Brooklyn native added that she might want someone from even closer to home than the multi-talented Taylor. “I love Teyana, but she’s from Harlem. Before Teyana, I would love to get some little girls from Brooklyn a chance so I can connect. Really connect.”
Kim has said she was disgusted when Naturi Naughton was cast to play her in 2009’s “Notorious” about the life story of murdered Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G, whom she dated for several years.
“I hate that movie. To me, it was like a spoof. It was something that I would have never approved. I didn’t like who played me. No. No, no, no, no,” she said at the time.
Taylor has appeared in several movies and TV shows, including the upcoming “Coming to America 2.”
