Li'l Kim and Notorious B.I.G.: Two Peas in A Pod

NEW YORK, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Even in the midst of her impending jail stint and allegations that she used the death of Christopher 'Notorious B.I.G.' Wallace to further her career, music artist Li'l Kim had nothing but love for the big guy when she sat for an interview to discuss their life together with VH1's Fab Five Freddy for the VH1 Hip Hop Honors, paying tribute to the legendary rapper on Monday, September 26 at 9:00 PM.

Li'l Kim reminisced about their old Brooklyn neighborhood and how the then unknowns shared a love for rap music. When Kim rapped for "Biggie" on a street corner one day, she says it was instant chemistry. "We became a duo right then and ever since; never left his side, never left my side." She recalled how he gave her her monikers Li'l Kim and Queen B. "He said I needed a nickname that really represented who I was because, 'I ain't callin' you Li'l Kim all day.'" Kim remembers with great affection how Biggie declared she was 'his b#$*#' and when she was really angry, she was a 'Queen B#$*#'. The moniker stuck and the rest as they say is history.

Ironically, Voletta Wallace, the mother of the Notorious B.I.G. who is writing a tell-all book painting a dark light on Li'l Kim's relationship with her late son, will be present at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors for the tribute to his memory. Even more ironic is his widow, Faith Evans, will perform the musical tribute to him.
