Raunchy rapper Lil' Kim won't be recording a new album until she can clear up a lawsuit filed by her record label.

In a lawsuit filed earlier this week, record label Brookland Media claims the Grammy-winner hasn't delivered the tracks she promised after the company spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on recordings and equipment. The label also claims it spent $12,000 per month to rent a house near Lil' Kim's New Jersey home.

The New York Daily News reports that Brookland wants the court to declare the contract valid and bar the rap star from recording for another company for its duration.

But Lil' Kim's lawyer, Londell McMillan, says Brookland sued "to leverage their own position" in the contract dispute – and was upbeat about reaching a deal that will get his client back in the studio. "We'll work it out around a conference table, in front of a judge or over some martinis," he said.

This isn't the first lawsuit the diminutive diva has faced. In July, publishes Simon & Schuster Inc. filed a lawsuit, claiming she had never delivered a manuscript she had been paid $40,000 to write.
