Holla! A baller tribute to Lil Kim totally blew the lid off VH1’s Hip Hop Honors, with Tenaya Taylor leading the way for a bold celebration of the rapper’s music. Keep reading for more on the incredible performance.
Holy cow! Lil’ Kim got one heck of a 42nd birthday present in the form of a massive tribute to the rapping icon at the Hip Hop Awards July 11. Tenaya Taylor, Lil Mama and Dej Loaf all took the stage to perform some of her biggest hits and the crowd went absolutely wild!
It’s hard to top the fierceness that is Lil’ Kim but a host of some of rap’s best up and coming names did their best to make the icon proud by performing a medley of her hits . They even totally dressed the part in the provocative and colorful outfits that she’s so well-known for.
Tenaya, Lil Mama and Dej Loaf all did their best to pay tribute to the rapper with Dej donning a pink wig to match her hot pink bra and undies with a see through patterned robe over it. She totally channeled Kim even down to the pink shades she first appeared onstage with. Lil Mama in the meantime went bold with a bright yellow thigh-high fur coat, hot pants that showed off her long legs down to her black ankle booties and dark shades that helped convey Kim’s attitude.

But it was Tenaya who crushed it with the energy and the swag that made her a dead ringer for Kim back in her heyday. She slayed it onstage in a leopard-print underwear with a red feather robe that showed off her killer body and she knocked out all the moves old-school with such fierceness that Kim has to be SO proud. She even later donned a blonde wig and did a duet with a rapper playing the late Biggie Smalls which brought down the house.
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of the Lil Kim tribute? Did it do her proud?
