VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens wouldn’t be complete without a tribute to the Queen Bee of rap, Lil’ Kim. She rounds out an all-female list of previously announced honorees Queen Latifah, Salt-N-Pepa featuring Spinderella and Missy Elliott.
Brooklyn MC and fashion icon Lil Kim has made a dent in the male-dominated world of hip-hop by being one of a few female rappers to have three consecutive platinum albums — Hard Core, Notorious K.I.M. and La Bella Mafia. Earlier this year, she hit the mixtape circuit with Lil Kim Season, which featured her remixes of Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” and Desiigner’s “Panda” featuring Maino. She will also be touring with Puff Daddy and her Bad Boy family for the Bad Boy reunion tour starting in August.
Tune in to VH1 Hip Hop Honors when it airs live from New York on July 11 at 9pm ET.
