Lil’ Kim Leaves Atlantic Records

Lil’ Kim has left Atlantic Records and intends to release her upcoming album independently.

On DJ Kay Slay’s SIRIUS radio show “Streetsweeper Radio” last week, Kim shared that she harbors no ill feelings toward Atlantic. She said she was afraid to release her music independently several years ago but is now more comfortable in her knowledge of the music business to work her project.

It’s rumored that the rapper will join Capitol Music Group’s independent label, Imperial Records, which Fat Joe is also signed to.

Lil Kim’s upcoming album is tentatively scheduled for an April/May 2008 release.
