Lil Kim Thanks Teyana Taylor

Hands down, Teyana Taylor‘s tribute to Lil Kim was one of the highlights from the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors.

If you missed the epic moment, you can run it back here.

Lil Kim has taken to social media to publicly thank Teyana saying she “could not have picked a better person” to pay tribute to her and she is “so proud.”


@teyanataylor thank you sooo much!! I’ve known you for a long time and I could not have picked a better person. You not only nailed the look but you slayed tf out of that performance!! So proud. Love you forever!! ❤️?

Teyana shared a little insight into her performance by revealing she only had 48 hours to prepare!


48 hours to get prepared after hearing I was doing the tribute while on baecation…I went completely into my Kim bag in the mirror all day long. Eat, sleep, think Kim. STUDIED, appreciated her era! I also want to take a moment to thank my “dream team” for bringing my vision of Kimberly Jones to life with hair @tokyostylez make-up @japanesefaces CUSTOM looks by @duckie_confetti and @bryonjavar for finding me them fire ass Dior boots ??? y’all pulled this off all in only 2 days!!!! I love you guys thank you for everything! Though I was so nervous before the performance, well shit all the way up to when those sliding doors opened lol the finished product made the woman of the hour happy and that’s what I dedicated my time to…to bow for one of the greats! Thank you @lilkimthequeenbee for your inspiration, choosing me, believing in me and for knocking down the door for other young women that dream big. “Nothing make a woman feel better” I’m still gagging that this happened. ?? Thank you VH1 & @monascottyoung for the opportunity. ???????? #VH1Honors #HiphopHonors #Thefirst48
