It wasn't long before Lil Kim, who also dropped her new single "Took Us A Break" today, posted the pics. She wrote, "Lawwwwddddd, my wig is all the way in China!!! SLAYED 😻 You did that B!" in this side-by-side's caption.

Look: Manhattan File mag, 2001.

The pic that REALLY shook the Internet, tho, was this spin on the unforgettable sheer bodysuit and fur number The Original Queen B wore 18 years ago.

The Internet is still in a state of shock from the moment, and some have already determined that it will for sure be their cause of passing.
