Yandy Smith and DJ Self admit that Lil’ Kim changed the fashion game in hip hop. Yandy relives a moment as a youngen, going to a school dance, when she had to sneak to get extra skanty in her Queen Bee inspired booty shorts. Aside from playing Miss “Magic Stick,” Yandy admits to having tried all the trends the Hip Hop Honors honorees started, from rolling up one pant leg like Salt-N-Pepa to adorning her outfits in safety pins and buttons à la Missy Elliot. DJ Self didn’t personally emulate the “steez” of the honorees, but he recalls the little ladies of Brooklyn certainly rocking fake furs galore.
