Lil Kim has trail-blazed over the course of her illustrious career and is now receiving her dues from some of today’s top stars. Rihanna being the latest.
Fresh from Beyonce’s Halloween honoring of music’s first Queen Bee, RiRi is verbalising her own salute of Notorious K.I.M.
Speaking in the latest issue of Vogue Paris, the 29-year-old had the following to say about the pioneering femcee…
Citing the rapper as one of her biggest influences, she said:
“Powerful, creative, without any taboos, Lil Kim has pushed the limits like no other black artist. Her world is coloful, fun, pop, rich and coded. She has fun. I am happy to see a phenomenon like in my life.”
Kudos to Rih for showing respect for the inspiration from which her style and swag is drawn from. It’s something so few of this era’s stars feel the need to do; thus the spats and fallouts we continually see.
