Lil’ Kim was quick to remind viewers how loaded her discography is Tuesday night (Oct. 8) with her energetic medley performance to close out the 2019 BET Hip-Hop Awards. After accepting the I Am Hip-Hop Award, a bedazzled Kim hit the stage with a few dancers and special guests.
After opening with “Lighters Up,” Kim brought out O.T. Genesis to perform their “Found You” collaboration. Kim then made way for Junior M.A.F.I.A to join her on stage, as they honored Biggie Smalls with “Player’s Anthem.” She also performed her verse from “All About the Benjamins.”
Queen Bee mentioned how Biggie has been an angel watching over her during her acceptance speech for the I Am Hip-Hop Award. “I’m gonna always love him and I’m gonna always ride for him,” she said. “I don’t play about him. That’s just what it is: Brooklyn.”
Kim is slated to drop her anticipated 9 album on Friday (Oct. 11), which will serve as her first LP since 2005’s The Naked Truth.
