Lil' Kim is undoubtedly one the most influential women in music. Her style and career blueprint has set the tone for men and women accross the board in music, movies, fashion and television. Lil' Kim came from the streets of Brooklyn and made it to the world stage, she was the first female rapper to bridge the gap between fashion and hip-hop. No female rapper was being invited to fashion shows, walking the runways and recived fashion endorsements before Lil' Kim. It's important that we celebrate our legends and icons while they are with us, over the years we have seen many people take notes from Lil' Kim and act as if those ideas were theirs. Lil' Kim recieved backlash for her unique and brave style, while females in the future are now receiving fashion icon awards and praise for doing the very same thing Lil' Kim did. Lil' Kim has a career spanning over 20 years and she is still relevant til' this day, in 2016 she had completed a sold-out tour (Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour) as the headlining act, she also recieved a WEEN icon award and the VH1 hip-hop honors award for her legacy and contributions to the arts. The CFDA honors people every year with the Fashion Icon Award, the award has so far been given to artists that Lil' Kim has influenced a great deal. The CFDA tend to give that coveted award to artists that are popular at the time which goes against what that award stands for. Lil' Kim's fanbase the beehive have been campaigning for this award for 2 years straight, the CFDA have ignored us and they havent directly addressed us regarding our thoughts about Kim receiving this award. We respect the CFDA highly and we are hurt and troubled to see Lil' Kim repeatedly snubbed when she has influenced many people. Publications like Vogue Magazine, VIBE magazine and other high profile magazines have all named Lil' Kim as a Fashion Icon, a Trendsetter, Influencer and a Pioneer. Lil' Kim is still the Queen and she has a leigon of fans who still support her. Let's stand together and get Lil' Kim this award as she has been through so much and deserves to be appreciated for the trials and tribulations she went through to make it easier for future artists. CFDA Winners Beyonce and Rihanna have both paid homage to Lil' Kim's iconic legacy and fashion. Voice your thoughts via the links provided below.
