Happy birthday, Lil Kim!
The OG “Queen Bee” in the rap world turns 47 today (July 11), proving that time has been nothing but kind to the Hard Core hitmaker.

To see artists like Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion all have dominating careers in hip-hop is an amazing sight to see, and each of those aforementioned queens and a handful of others have brought a type of energy to their artistry that immediately feels borrowed from the house that “Notorious K.I.M.” built.
