Lil Kim will narrate the second season of BET’s “American Gangster: Trap Queens.” The series documents the lives of some of the most notorious female criminals and looks at the fierce and savvy women who hustled hard and solidified their places in the underworld.
BET+ will release the first five episodes of “American Gangster: Trap Queens” on Thursday, Jan. 14. Jeezy narrated season one of the popular series.
“After the success of the first season of ‘American Gangster: Trap Queens,’ we are excited to bring another iteration of captivating stories to the screen,” said Frank Sinton, executive producer for the series. “While addressing social issues such as [systemic] racial and gender disparities, the stories this season vary from thrilling to shocking and everything in between.”
The first half of season two of “American Gangster: Trap Queens” will tell the stories of Perrion Roberts, Brandi Davis, Dwen Curry, Tiffani Rose Peak and Shauntay Henderson, whose purported crimes range from grand larceny to bank and wire fraud to drug trafficking. The show also features the ladies speaking about the downside of the game like losing their families, fortunes and serving time in prison.
