Hip-Hop female rap rivals Foxy Brown and Lil’ Kim are being sued over advance money for books that were never developed.

According to New York Newsday, the Brooklyn emcees were both paid advances by Simon & Schuster, Inc. for books expected to have already hit shelves. Foxy was allegedly given $75,000 in ’05 for an exclusive autobiography titled Broken Silence that was scheduled for completion by Feb 2006. Kim was handed $40,000 in ’03 for a novel due by June ’04.

Although they were legally required to complete the books, both rap vixens served jail time shortly after signing their deals. Kim served a year in prison back in ’05 for lying about her knowledge of a shooting while Foxy completed a bid last year for a probation violation.

Brown’s attorney, Laura Dilimetin, and Kim’s attorney, L. Londell McMillan, were unavailable for comment at press time.
