PHILADELPHIA July 3, 2006 (AP) — Lil’ Kim celebrated Independence Day one day early with her release from a federal detention center Monday morning after nearly 10 months behind bars.

The rapper, who was sent to prison for lying about a shootout outside a New York radio station, walked out of the jail looking glamorous in sunglasses and an all-white, cleavage-baring outfit.

Carrying a balloon and a bouquet of white roses, she waved to dozens of cheering onlookers some carrying signs that said, “Welcome Home, Queen Bee” before getting into a silver Rolls Royce. The car pulled into a nearby parking lot where she re-emerged to greet the throng.

The pint-sized Kim was serving a year-and-a-day sentence. She’ll be under crib arrest for 30 days, according to the report.
