New York rapper Lil’ Kim knows there’s pure greatness in both Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion. The Queen Bee has lit up social media with a must-read message to the Houston music heavyweights following their epic Grammy night.
Lil’ Kim Pens Deep Words
Kimberly hit up Instagram to share an emotionally-driven salute to Bey and Meg for slaying at last Sunday’s Grammy Awards. After giving big props to Stallion for dominating the rap game, Kim explained just how much respect she has for Bey.
“🗣SCREAMING CONGRATULATIONS‼️ To my 2 beautiful Queens ‼️👑👑 @theestallion, I have watched how hard you worked since you stepped on the scene consistent with your work and your love. You are an amazing talent. Always keep your head to the sky and know you have made your Mommy proud! You deserve it all!

We came up together and as hard as I saw you work I always knew there was something special about you. You worked so hard to get to where you are and I knew that one day everything that you accomplished would be rewarded. You deserve every bit of recognition that you receive and thank you for inspiring all women to be independent and strong. You are EVERYTHING. Thanks for my little screen time 😂 and including me with all of the strong women in the industry and always showing me love!! ❤️❤️❤️ I love you BEYONDsay my Queen 👑 Congratulations on making HISTORY 🙌🏽”
Meg Thee Stallion made sure to sneak into Kim’s comments section to acknowledge the deep salute.
“Love you Kim 😭💙”
Cardi B + Meg Thee Stallion’s Grammys Sets
During the Grammy Awards broadcast, both Megan and rap star Cardi B made temperatures go all the way “Up” with their flashy sets. B started things off with her latest single before sharing the stage with her “WAP” collaborator.
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion amped up the Grammys with a jaw-dropping performance of their NSFW anthem “WAP.” The duo performed a strip club-themed version of the song, featuring a pole on a massive high heel and ending with the two rappers writhing together on a giant bed. Even though the chorus was changed to “Wet Wet Wet” to pass network muster, the song’s message of sexual empowerment remained clear. Prior to “WAP,” Megan performed “Body” and “Savage” with roaring ’20s spectacle, complete with a tap dancing break and plenty of tight choreography. (Variety)
Earlier in the week, Cardi issued a Twitter statement dishing on how she felt about the Grammys organization.
“I do feel that there were some albums, and songs that should have been considered for nominations. Maybe by next year they will get it right. However let’s not forget the Grammys nominated soo many independent black artists this year that don’t get the exposure by blogs, magazines and other awards shows.”
Meg Thee Stallion’s “Savage” Remix Set
Along with sharing on-stage time with Cardi, Megan also blew people away with her “Savage” live set.
Don’t be shy, get up and do that TikTok dance you learned last year. Megan Thee Stallion performed her viral hit “Savage (Remix)” at the Grammys on Sunday, looking like an angel in a white feathered burlesque look. “Tonight is my first time at the Grammys, but it is not my first time entertaining you,” she said before breaking into full choreography. If this is how it starts, you’re gonna want to stick around for the end. She starts rapping after an outfit change, blessing us with the lyrics that got us through a hot ‘rona summer. (Vulture)

Stallion ultimately dominated the entire Grammys. After snagging a handful of awards heading into the awards show, Stallion went home with three huge trophies.
