Raunchy rapper LIL' KIM is making a reality TV show to chronicle her life, thoughts and feelings up until her incarceration on 19 September (05).

Lil' Kim, real name KIMBERLY JONES, begins serving her year-and-a-day term in a Connecticut prison next week, and filming the revealing documentary is helping to keep her spirits high.

L LONDELL McMILLAN, the rapper's lawyer, tells PageSix.com, "This is a very important time for Kim.

"We want to have documented evidence of Kim, and we're using humour and a lot of prayer to get through these tough times."
