Lil Kim On Beyonce Using Queen Bee References ‘She Has The Right To Call Herself Queen Bee’
Lil Kim was the first to dub the “bee” reference after going by “Lil Kim the Queen Bee,” rapping, “You wanna bumble with the bee?” in “All About The Benjamins” and more. But now, it’s safe to say Beyonce has redefined the phrase “Beyhive” as that’s now the name of her overzealous fanbase.
Still, Lil Kim said she really has no issues with it.
“That was me, and then I had a group… That was my whole thing…. I was the beehive… My fans kind of adapted the name. It’s so funny because even back then my fans would run up like, ‘I’m beehive! I’m a part of the beehive!’ They would be following me and they would all come to my concerts, and they would wear shirts with the bees on them and say they were the beehive.
Now you fast forward to years later, and we’re in the social world, and now my fans on the internet are the beehive. And I feel like Beyonce rightfully so has the right to call herself Queen Bee as well… Her name is Bey-once.”
“I feel like some of her fans that’s disrespectful… cause some of them be like ‘Y’all both the queen bees.’ Some of her fans are so respectful and some of them just give it up… Cause she even did. She was like the original Queen Bey, and that was love to me.”
It looks like Lil Kim was referencing that time Beyonce dressed up as her for Halloween in 2017. The singer even wrote on her site,
“Lil Kim Appreciation. Hip Hop would not be the same without our original Queen B.”
