All hail the Queens! This year’s VH1 Hip Hop Honors was a tribute to the lady trailblazers of Hip-Hop. The honorees included Salt-N-Pepa with their DJ Spinderella, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot, and Lil’ Kim. The show began with an amazing tribute to Missy Elliot by performers such as Nelly Furtado, Eve (who also hosted the show),and Remy Ma. Missy was honored by Timbaland, Busta Rhymes, and a few other artist who she’s helped in her career such as Fantasia and Monica. Queen Latifah had MC’s Da Brat, Lady of Rage, Monie Love, and others to help in her tribute. She later closed the show by bringing all the other female MC’s including MC Lyte to join her in performing “U.N.I.T.Y.” Keke Palmer, Dreezy, and Ashanti did a tribute honoring the sex talking, trail-blazing duo Salt-N-Pepa.
Lil’ Kim’s tribute was saved for last but certainly not least. After being introduced by Faith Evans, Lil Mama, Teyana Taylor, French Montana, and The Lox went out and performed some of her classics. She later came out and performed a song with Rich Homie Quan who was picked to rap Biggie’s part. The show even included a surprise cameo from Diddy and a runway fashion show of Ms. Kim the Queen B’s most iconic looks. All in all, VH1 put on a great show honoring these women.
