The VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens was an epic show last night [July 11]. Some of Hip Hop’s greatest females were honored and their tribute performances were spectacular. Teyana Taylor, Lil Mama and Dej Loaf, stepped out and killed the performance tribute to Lil’ Kim.
Each artist was costumed as Kim in some of her most memorable looks. Teyana Taylor rocked the cheetah print bathing suit that Kim rocked in a poster to promote her debut album Hard Core in 1996, DeJ Loaf channeled Lil Kim during her No Way Out Tour in 1997 and Lil Mama wore an all pink bathing suit that Lil Kim was photoed in in 1999.
As they performed, the crowd went wild sending the energy through the roof as they spit Lil’ Kim lyrics ever so flawless. Teyana Taylor made two appearances. She changed into an all black dress to perform the hit song “All About the Benjamin’s” by Puff Daddy ft. The Notorious B.I.G., The LOX and Lil’ Kim.
