Last night Vh1 aired “Hip Hop Honors,” which returned after a six-year hiatus, with its triumph return, it was only right that Vh1 honor the women in rap music. The ceremony special gave praise to artists such as Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Salt-N-Peppa and Jersey’s own Queen Latifah. The Rap Pioneers were honored by some of their closest friends and collaborators.
Not only was it Lil Kim’s birthday yesterday, but the Queen B also had another reason to celebrate as she was honored at the 2016 Hip Hop Honors. Faith Evan’s kicked off the Lil Kim Tribute as she gave a great introduction before Lil Mama and Dej Loaf, started things off with Crush on You, sporting Lil Kim signature colored wigs. Teyana took over the night as she gave her best impression of Lil Kim as she performed “No Time.” Kim’s current tour Mates The Lox arrived on the stage to perform “It’s All About the Benjamins” joined by no other than Teyana Taylor who hit the stage for the second time.
Later that night Lil Kim hit the stage herself, while she did forget some of the lyrics to her own son Queen B!tch it wasn’t as nearly as bad as Rich Homie Quan who forgot Notorious B.I.G.’s verse on Junior M.A.F.I.A.’s “Get Money,” which caused Lil Kim to finish out the verse. The rest of the night took a turn for the better and Lil Kim and Dej loaf closed out the ceremony with her hit “Lighters Up.”
