In the past, Beyoncé paid homage to Lil' Kim by portraying some of her most iconic looks for Halloween, and earlier this year, Kim took to Instagram to congratulate both Bey and Megan Thee Stallion for becoming the first-ever pair of women to be awarded the Best Rap Performance award in Grammys history.
"SCREAMING CONGRATULATIONS To my 2 beautiful Queens¸" wrote Kim.
Kim changed the female presence in the rap game, rising to popularity after joining Junior M.A.F.I.A.
She, then went on to release her iconic debut studio album "Hard Core" in 1996 and was certified 6x platinum, selling more than 6 million copies worldwide.
The debut was the most successful for any woman in hip-hop.
