Facing up to 10 years on an obstruction count and 35 years maximum on all the other charges stemming from a shooting outside of Hot 97 studios in 2001, it appears that rap/ hip hop artist Lil Kim knows something about time.
The rapper, whose real name is Kimberly Jones is designing her own line of regal watches, dubbed 'Royalty'.
"I love fashion and wanted to create a designer watch collection that would translate my personal style into a product which would appeal to stylish women everywhere," said Lil' Kim, , in a statement Tuesday.
Celebrity jeweler Jacob Arabo will manufacture the watches, which will range in price from $1,800 to $3,500.
"These watches exude luxury," said Lil' Kim, "but I wanted to create a quality, unique product that fashionable women everywhere can afford."
The watches feature diamond bezels weighing from 1.75 to 2.25 carats and interchangeable leather wristbands.
Lil Kim is charged with obstructing the course of justice, conspiracy to commit perjury and making false statements in connection with a shoot-out between her entourage and associates of a rival hip-hop artist, outside of a Greenwich Village radio station, leaving one man shot in the back after five men fired 22 bullets.
U.S. District Court Judge Gerard Lynch reset the trial from November to Feb. 28th to give the defense more time to prepare.
