Lil' Kim Transformation: Before and After PHOTOS

lil kim before and after photo

WOW!  Every time we see rapper Lil' Kim, she looks like a totally different person.  Her latest transformation is...shocking to say the least.

The 35-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Kimberly Denise Jones, was raised in Brooklyn and grew up on the streets after being kicked out of her home.  In 2005 Kim spent a year in prison for lying to a jury about her friend's involvement in a murder.

Last week Lil' Kim performed live at Rockit Fridays at CLUB QUO - a popular gay hotspot in Manhattan.  She was rocking a totally different look, just weeks after filming several music videos for the second and third singles from her fifth studio album - which is due out in 2011.
