LIL' KIM's tiring training routine for U.S. reality show Dancing With The Stars is ruining her plans to record a new album.
The hip-hop star hoped to lay down tracks for the follow-up to her 2005 CD The Naked Truth during her time off in between shooting and rehearsing for the TV contest in Los Angeles.
But her dancing schedule is so gruelling, she has little time left over to hit the studio.
Kim tells Hip Hop Weekly, "I rehearse everyday for about six to eight hours a day. It's definitely a lot of hard, gruelling work. I really don't have much down time. When I'm not rehearsing I try to get in the studio and work on new music for my album."
