Musical tributes can take an array of forms, from a loose interpretation of the artist’s work to an attempt at mirroring the original version of a song.
For Monday night’s Lil’ Kim tribute at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors, Teyana Taylor chose the second option.
It was Taylor’s performance that was particularly remarkable.
Her vocals and energy were a near indistinguishable match from The Queen Bee’s originals.
Diddy surprised Kim with a tribute of his own.
In addition to Kim, Queen Latifah, Salt-N-Pepa, and Missy Elliott were also honored at the event.
