Rapper Lil' Kim's fourth solo album will come out just days before she starts her year-and-a-day prison term for perjury.
The rapper was convicted of lying to a grand jury investigating a 2001 gunfight outside a New York radio station.
Facing a tight deadline, Lil' Kim was reported to be in the studio making some last-minute changes to the album, Billboard said.
Her last album, "La Bella Mafia," peaked at No. 4 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in 2003 and hit No. 5 on The Billboard 200.
