Rapper Lil' Kim is passing the time in her Philadelphia federal prison cell by writing new songs.
"She's writing a lot of music in there," said Maricela Cuvlye, an inmate who was released last week after serving six years. "She spends lots of time in her cell by herself, just to write."
Another inmate told the Post: "She's always happy and she's always singing," one inmate said.
Lil' Kim began serving her year-and-a-day sentence in September. She was convicted of lying to a grand jury investigating a 2001 shootout outside a New York radio station.
