(AllHipHop News) Last night (July 11), VH1 celebrated several iconic female Hip Hop acts with the return of the Hip Hop Honors awards show. Many stars were on hand to salute Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, and Missy Elliott. But it was the tribute to Lil Kim that had fans online going crazy the most.
The set opened with Dej Loaf and Lil Mama doing a rendition of Kim’s “Crush On You.” However, Teyana Taylor stole the show with her uncanny channeling of the Queen Bee while performing “No Time” with French Montana and “It’s All about the Benjamins” with The Lox.
Twitter users let Taylor know she was the MVP of the night.
Teyana bodied that. #hiphophonors
