(VH1.com) After Faith Evans’ noteworthy presentation, Lil Mama, Teyana Taylor, French Montana and The Lox took the stage to pay tribute to iconic rapper and fashion icon Lil’ Kim with a medley of her hits. The tribute performance started off with “Crush On You,” performed by Lil Mama. Teyana Taylor took the stage next and slayed her performance of “No Time.” She was then joined on stage by French Montana and The Lox for “All About the Benjamins.”
(VH1.com) Lil’ Kim’s tribute at VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens was epic. However, something even more epic happened right after it: Puff Daddy surprised Lil’ Kim on stage to show her more love.
“Everything about you, Kim, from your music to your fashion…you brought glamour to hip-hop,” Diddy said.
Lil’ Kim was shocked as all of this was going down. She thought Puff Daddy had a previous engagement, but little did she know that engagement was paying tribute to her.
“With your style…you changed the female MC game…and became one of the biggest international stars in rap history,” Puff Daddy said. “Kim made rap feminine and sexy, stylish and hardcore all at the same time.”
She did indeed. However, Puff Daddy noted that, above all, it’s Lil’ Kim’s fearlessness that makes her the icon she is today.
“It’s her courage,” Puff Daddy said. “She has no fear. Fearless. She’s not afraid to do things differently. She’s a diva at times. She’s high maintenance with me at times. At the end of the day, she demands the ultimate respect, and that’s how you treat a queen.”
(VH1.com) Lil’ Kim may have been one of the honorees at VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens, but it was her 2-year-old daughter Royal Reign who really stole the show.
During her acceptance speech, Lil’ Kim gave a shout-out to her daughter, who was in the audience. The camera then panned to the tiny child, and she looked so cute that the world imploded.
