Hip Hop fans have long considered Lil Kim to be one of the best female MCs to ever walk the earth, but that isn’t stopping her from giving credit where credit is due. On Monday (March 15), Queen Bee penned a heartfelt tribute to both Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion, who took home multiple awards at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night (March 14).
“SCREAMING CONGRATULATIONS! To my 2 beautiful Queens!” she wrote alongside a photo of the “Savage (Remix)” collaborators. “@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! May God continue to bless you.”

Turning her attention to Beyoncé — who became the most decorated female artist in Grammy history that evening with 28 wins — Kim gave Queen Bey her flowers and then some.
“And to my Queen Bee Soul Sister, @beyonce, I love you sooo much,” she continued. “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!”
Megan had every reason to smile during the ceremony. While she didn’t walk away with the Record of the Year trophy, she took home trophies in the Best New Artist, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance categories. Meanwhile, Beyoncé won Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade,” Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl” and Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for her contribution to Megan’s “Savage (Remix).”
