Every year VH1 network shows love to all of the old school hip hop movers, shakers and influencers. The rappers of the Golden Age of hip hop helped mold the music industry to what we see today. Past honorees include Slick Rick, Naughty By Nature and Too $hort. Nevertheless, don’t think that Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors is just about the guys. Hip Hop Honors 2016 is bringing serious “Girl Power” to the fore!
Hip Hop Honors 2016
Who’s on tap for this year’s show? Man let’s just say that all these ladies paved the way for the Nickis, Iggys, Lola Monroes and Azealia Banks. Hip Hop Honors 2016 honorees include: Queen Latifah, Salt N’ Pepa, Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott and the original Queen Bee, Lil’ Kim!
The fabulousity of these ladies are on a whole other level. They can rap with the best of them, have iconic style and their music transcends generations. Here is a quickie promo that highlights all that:
As our mother used to say, “They all that and a bag of chips that’s greasy huh (LOL)?” It’s not easy having longevity in the music industry. Heck, it’s not easy to get into the music industry period! Nevertheless, these ladies made it happen. Moreover, they did it at a time when hip hop was dominated by males. Yet, they let their talent do the real talking. Consequently, now they are legends in the game.
Hip Hop Honors 2016 – Nothing But Love
Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott and Salt N’ Pepa are all honored to be recognized as heavy hitters in hip hop. We loved what Salt N’ Pepa told fans. They said,
“After 30 years in the game, platinum plaques, all the awards and proclamations any artist could dream of, it wouldn’t mean anything without our amazing fans.
