Forget being patriotic this Independence Day; be Kim-triotic instead!

On Monday, a day before the nation’s birthday, rapper Lil Kim will be released from prison. She’s spent the last ten months serving a 366-day sentence for federal perjury, but is being let out early for good behavior.

“I am thrilled to be coming home,” Kim said in a statement. “I thank all my fans for all their letters, as well as my family and friends for all their support throughout the past 10 months.”

Mr. Rad could not be reached for comment.

Rumors of this news have been making the rounds since Tuesday’s BET Awards, where the rapper’s mother told reporters she expected her daughter to be released in the coming days. Now, Kimberly Jones is scheduled to leave Philadelphia Federal Detention Center on Monday at 6 a.m. She’ll remain under house arrest for a 30-day period after that.

“We are pleased that Kim is coming home to start the next phase of her life,” Kim’s attorney, L. Londell McMillan, said in a statement. “She has accepted responsibility and handled herself in an exemplary manner.”

DMX could learn a thing or two from her.
