If you did not watch the Hip Hop Honors last night, then you were hiding under a rock. Last Vh1 honored Queen Latifah, Salt-n-Pepa and Spinderella, Missy Elliot, and Lil Kim after a six-year hiatus. The show was completely epic, and one of the most epic moments was the Lil Kim tribute. Lil Kim celebrated her 42nd birthday being honored as one of the hottest females MC’s in the game with raunchy lyrics and risk taking style. Dej Loaf and Lil Mama performed “Crush On You” wearing similar looks from the colorful video. Teyanna Taylor was the highlight of the show as she performed “No Time” wearing a leopard bikini and leopard cover up with red feathers. She was then joined by French Montana and the The Lox for “All About the Benjamin’s” wearing a black double split dress with blonde wig and black boots. I knew something was up when Teyanna Taylor walked the red carpet with a curly yellow wig. Teyanna really studied Lil Kim’s mannerisms, looks, personality, and performance style. She was so lit that when the performance was over she through that wig off honey and still slayed. There was also a fashion show featuring supermodels Winnie Harlow and Jessica White.
