Lil Kim Mimics Michael Jackson, Raps Over ‘Otis’ in Australia
Yes, the photo above is actually Lil Kim and not a Michael Jackson impersonator. While the Queen Bee was performing in Sydney, Australia for the WinterBeatz Festival, she channeled the King of Pop onstage complete with a glitter glove, aviator shades and a shimmering military jacket.
The rap diva thrusted her pelvis to the music of Jacko's classic song 'Billie Jean' before she broke into the robot dance and threw a wild kick in the air much to the delight of the roaring crowd. As to why she wanted to mimic MJ's classic moves is mystery to us, but shockingly she does resemble the late singer sans the black push-up bra and knee-high boots. Afterward, Kimmy jumped into her own classic song 'It's All About the Benjamins' and that's when things got a little interesting.
Backed by a live band, Lil Kim told the crowd, "No matter what the year is, it's still all about the benjamins, baby," before she rapped her famous verse from the song. She then switched it up and recited her rhymes over Jay-Z and Kanye West's celebrated track 'Otis.' Surprisingly, 'Benjamins' sounded fresh over the soul-sampled 'Otis' beat -- we think Kimmy might be on to something here. Overall, it looks as if Lil Kim gave a thrilling show Down Under. Yee-hee!
