Following the release of WAP music video by Cardi B, fans and many hip-hop listeners have praised the singer for the feminine power she displayed with an appearance from the Megan Thee Stallion, Rosalia, Kylie Jenner and Normani.
We quite a lot of raunchiness in the video and Twitter users are quick to remind us that it all started with Lil Kim.
In no time, Lil Kim becomes the trending topic on Twitter all because of WAP music video – many think Cardi B owes it to the veteran rapper for paving way for the contemporaries as a FemCee.

If y’all think WAP is nasty then I know you never listened to Lil Kim and you definitely never listened to this album. Bless up pic.twitter.com/dGME9yASOA

Lil Kim getting the recognition she deserves sits very well with me.

I saw someone say it should have been Lil Kim and honestly that would have flattened me. 😩 https://t.co/MipvsSxqlz

Yes #WAP got people twisting in their seats but we're not going to pretend that Lil Kim and Missy Elliott didn't make us check our edges first. These ladies walk so Cardi and Megan could run.

I love lil Kim. She’s an og, but tbh she didn’t “invent” raunchy lyrics bc didn’t biggie encourage her to rap like that? I can’t fully remember but i remember them having a conversation about it.
