Lil Kim claims that pre-orders for her upcoming book, “The Queen Bee,” are outselling the Bible.
“My book has been done. When we post our presales, we be surpassing the Bible. And that’s crazy. And the thing is, it’s like the Bible, like I don’t take that lightly. I already know that,” the legendary New York raptress said on Instagram Live.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Christian Bible holds the record of “Best-Selling Book.” The organization says it’s impossible to count how many copies have been printed over the last 1,500 years, but “research conducted by the British and Foreign Bible Society in 2021 suggests that the total number probably lies between 5 and 7 billion copies.”
Kim went on to allude to having difficulties with book publishers.
“But it’s like some crazy sh*t going on behind the scenes,” she said. “You have to be really careful when you deal with these book companies because they try to, like, literally take advantage of you.”
“The Queen Bee” was initially set for a November 2021 release date. She even dropped a link for preordering that April, but apparently, issues pushed the book’s debut back. Co-written with music journalist Kathy Iandoli, the 288-page book is expected to be released in March 2024.
Hackette Books describes the memoir as “a true page-turner from start to finish, The Queen Bee is every bit as fierce, empowering, and badass as the woman at the heart of this story—and firmly cements her legacy as a true feminist icon.”
