WikiMedia: Emillio

Lil Kim, the original Queen Bee of hip hop, turns 37 today. In celebration of her birthday and beloved ghetto-fabulousness we've rounded up some of her most, er, memorable style moments. And here's one of her iconic rap verses that still makes us move when we hear it today, from the song "Crush on You":

Ayo shorty, won't you go get a bag of the lethal



I'll be undressed in the bra all see through



Why you count your jewels thinkin' I'mma cheat you?



The only one thing I wanna do is freak you



Keep your stone sets, I got my own baguettes



Aand I'll be doin things that you won't regret.



Lil Kim the Queen Bee, so you best take heed.


Crush On You - Lil Kim featuring Junior M.A.F.I.A. (1997)
