The “Savage” artists took home the award for best rap song and best rap performance on Sunday evening, marking the first time an all-female collab won in the latter category. Meg also became the first female rapper to win best new artist since Ms. Lauryn Hill’s legendary night in 1999. Queen Bey also made herstory after bringing her total of Grammy Awards to 28, pulling ahead of Alison Krauss (27 Grammys) to break the record for most Grammys won by a woman (and vocalist of any gender). She now ties Quincy Jones as the living person with the most Grammys.
Lil’ Kim praised the H-Town artists’ personal victories, which she notes were wins for female artists everywhere, on Instagram. “@theestallion, I have watched how hard you worked since you stepped on the scene consistent with your work and your love. You are an amazing talent,” Kim began her personal heartwarming note for Meg. “Always keep your head to the sky and know you have made your Mommy proud! You deserve it all! May God continue to bless you.”
Lil’ Kim later addressed her “Queen Bee Soul Sister,” who honored the “original Queen B” in 2017 with five Lil’ Kim-inspired Halloween costumes.
“We came up together and as hard as I saw you work I always knew there was something special about you. You worked so hard to get to where you are and I knew that one day everything that you accomplished would be rewarded,” the “Lady Marmalade” artist wrote. “You deserve every bit of recognition that you receive and thank you for inspiring all women to be independent and strong. You are EVERYTHING. Thanks for my little screen time and including me with all of the strong women in the industry and always showing me love!! I love you BEYONDsay my Queen.”
The “Hot Girl” rapper wrote back, “Love you Kim” in the comments section, where Kim responded, “And I Love u 2 sexy girl.” The 26-year-old superstar also thanked Busta Rhymes and Monica on Instagram for their congratulatory messages.
