Lil' Kim Jury To Avoid Rap Fans

Court officials are taking steps to ensure the jury selected for LIL' KIM's perjury trial have no knowledge of hip-hop music.

All candidates in line to take the bench face a gruelling 15-page questionnaire which aims to rule out anyone whose judgment may be tainted by the notorious reputation of some of the rap artists likely to be mentioned in the court room.

The trial relates to a New York shootout in 2001 which occurred outside radio station HOT 97 when the entourages of rival rap stars Lil' Kim and Capone-N-Noreaga came face to face.

Kim's lawyer MEL SACHS says, "My problem with the list is people are going to associate certain events with certain names, like SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS. Most people who read the newspapers or watch television will associate Mr Combs with a gun."

Sachs is also insisting that the name of Kim's backing group Junior Mafia be changed in court to "the musical group" - to avoid any negative connotations.

Lil' Kim will stand trial this month (28FEB05) on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, perjury and lying to the Federal Grand Jury.
