I feel this homage to Lil Kim is personal.
….Beyonce came with it this past Halloween and slayed every iconic image of Lil Kim who is known as the “Queen of Hip-Hop” “Queen of Rap” in the female rap industry.
Along her side is “Biggie Smalls” (her ride or die) until death do them part: Jay-Z
This year, Beyoncé recreated five iconic Lil’ Kim looks for Halloween as a tribute to the original Queen of Hip-Hop, posting them all to her website with a breakdown of the outfits and the origin of each image.
Underneath the headline of the slideshow she wrote, “HIP HOP WOULD NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT OUR ORIGINAL QUEEN B.”
Lil’ Kim expressed her gratitude and approval of the tribute, writing, “I’m speechless and honored” and commenting on each specific look.
