Lil’ Kim Gives a Tour of Biggie’s Brooklyn

Lil' Kim

In honor of the VMAs first time in Brooklyn tonight, Lil’ Kim took MTV News’ Sway Calloway on a tour of the birthplace of the Notorious B.I.G. The Queen Bee picked him up in her black Rolls-Royce Phantom and rode around her hometown.

She reminisced on Tupac and Nas’ visit to Bed-Stuy and stopped by Biggie’s old apartment on St. James Place, where they met up with Junior M.A.F.I.A.

They hopped out on the corner of Bedford and Quincy, the famous spot where Biggie battled Preme in 1991.

Her fellow Brooklynites showed out on bikes as they came down the street. “They turnt all the way up. Never turn down for nothing,” said Kim.

She also recalled the time she ran away from home when she was a teen and Biggie’s big dreams. “He was so optimistic, so sure of his future,” said Kim. “He just knew these things were gonna happen.”
