Lil’ Kim broke into the scene after getting by fellow rapper The Notorious B.I.G., who invited her to join his group Junior M.A.F.I.A in 1994. Recently, the rap veteran put on an extraordinarily busty display during the first day of the Pride Island event, held on Governors Island in New York Harbor.
The Daily Mail reported, The 47-year-old rap star hit the stage in a clinging tiger print bodysuit that was sheer enough to reveal that she was bra-less. In keeping with the Pride theme of the festivities, she rocked a long, flowing hairdo that featured rainbow highlights.
Kim pulled a latticed black leather corset over the ensemble and added a belt, emphasizing the classic hourglass effect. She added glam to her bold look with jewelry. She sharpened her unmistakable features with heavy makeup and strutted her stuff on a pair of black boots.
