Paying homage has long been a point of contention in female Hip-Hop. But for Rap royal Cardi B, it’s never been an issue. Especially as relates to Queen Bee Lil Kim.
Over the course of her increasingly impressive career, Cardi has praised Kim for serving as the pink-print for all female rappers that came after her.
From her flow, to her raunch, to her style, Kim undeniably blazed a trail that indeed made the careers of so many that followed possible.
And for Cardi, the honoring is on-going.
Taking to Twitter, amidst debate about the raciness of smash hit ‘WAP (ft. Megan Thee Stallion),’ she quoted Kim’s ‘Big Momma Thang’ lyrics – adding that “a wise woman once said…”
As ‘WAP’ is showing the modern audience, there’s ample power in celebrating and creating with one another. There’s space for multiple Queens.
