Something even more epic happened right after it: Puff Daddy surprised Lil’ Kim on stage to show her more love.

“Everything about you, Kim, from your music to your fashionyou brought glamour to hip-hop,” Diddy said.

Lil’ Kim was shocked as all of this was going down.

She thought Puff Daddy had a previous engagement, but little did she know that engagement was paying tribute to her.

“With your styleyou changed the female MC gameand became one of the biggest international stars in rap history,” Puff Daddy said.

“Kim made rap feminine and sexy, stylish and hardcore all at the same time.”

Puff Daddy noted that, above all, it’s Lil’ Kim’s fearlessness that makes her the icon she is today.

“She has no fear. Fearless. She’s not afraid to do things differently. She’s a diva at times. She’s high maintenance with me at times. At the end of the day, she demands the ultimate respect, and that’s how you treat a queen.”
