Rapper Lil Kim has reacted to Beyonce being called Queen Bee with her fan base also called Beehive.
Both terms were attributed to Lil Kim as far back as the early 2000s. However, the internet age sees the attributes going Beyonce’s way.
Speaking on the issue, Lil Kim said:
“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.”
