A New York judge has chided prosecutors and defense lawyers for Lil' Kim for approving some jurors who gave objectionable responses to questionnaires.

U.S. District Judge Gerald Lynch told the legal teams to take care when screening the 200 prospective jurors who filled out questionnaires for the case, Newsday reported Monday. He said they should not have OK'd some jurors who voiced strong opinions against Lil' Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Jones.

He said one potential juror wrote crime seems to be part of the hip-hop culture. He said the juror wrote: "She's a rapper that spends a lot of money on diamonds ... she seems like she would do almost anything for money." The judge said another juror wrote rappers and hip-hop artists "seem to shoot each other."

Jury selection began Monday in the trial. Lil' Kim stands accused of perjury, obstruction and false statements related to a shoot-out in February 2001.
