Known for their eccentric couple costumes, artist Teyana Taylor and NBA player Iman Shumpert arrived at the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors as another infamous couple.
Honoring one of the female emcees of the night, Taylor arrived more than ready to jump on stage for her already scheduled performance as Lil’ Kim. In support of his fiancé, Shumpert joined suit in the festivities dressed up as legendary rapper Biggie.
Making it obvious that she saw the opportunity to salute the Queen Bee as a serious one, Taylor went on to perform not once, but twice at the event. With viewers of the television show raving about Taylor’s performances via social media, it looks like Rich Homie Quan should have taken some notes from singer/actress.
Sharing his support even more the next day, Shumpert took to his Instagram account to gush about how well Taylor did during the Lil’ Kim tribute performance.
#vh1honors2016 you all chose the right one!!! ?? @teyanataylor that was an unreal performance. From the mannerisms, to the movements, to the voice and the wardrobe you and your “dream team” really paid homage to the Queen!! So proud of you especially after seeing how hard you worked on the performance knowing how much you love Kim. You put the body bag in a body bag!!! Enjoy this moment..#thefirst48 what’s next ??
