A day after ripping up Hot 97’s Summer Jam stage with Remy Ma, Lil Kim was honored by New York City Council’s Black, Latino and Asian Caucus (BLAC) on Monday night.

In celebration of Black Music Month, Bronx Councilman Andy King and the BLAC presented the iconic raptress with a proclamation for her contributions to Hip Hop.

While accepting the honor, Lil Kim vowed to always give back to her community saying:

I’m just gonna say this: Use us. Use us in the industry. We have a voice, and we wanna represent our town, our city.

I wanna say thank you to… Mayor Bill de Blasio and everyone on the Council for coming and making this happen because it’s nice to be recognized and it’s nice when people—they recognize your worth, your talent.

But at the same time, we wanna do anything that we can do to help you guys and help everyone from our town, our city and make it better.

Whatever we can do, use us. I’ve done charity work for many years, and now with me coming back, I’m gonna do charity work again. And I’m just gonna say: I am so happy and proud to be from Brooklyn.

Although Maino told those in attendance Lil Kim wasn’t speaking to him…he still couldn’t keep his hands off of her.




Angela Simmons, NBA player Charles Smith and fashion icon Dapper Dan were also honored.


Congrats to all of the honorees.
