EBONY Evolution explores the past, present and future of our favorite stars. In an in-depth interview, we get an intimate look into Black trailblazers' lives, loves and careers through their voices and perspectives.

Hip Hop has always been near and dear to Lil' Kim, one of the five icons featured on our Hip-Hop 50th anniversary commemorative covers. As a young girl coming up in Brooklyn, it provided her an outlet to be seen and express herself in a way nothing and no one else could. So it's no surprise she's breaking down her favorite looks of all time in this exclusive video and sharing how she reigns as a fashion innovator, even when she's not even tryin'.

Join Lil' Kim as she shares her hip-hop odyssey in this latest episode of EBONY Evolution.
