Last night Vh1 aired “Hip Hop Honors,” which returned after a six-year hiatus, with its triumph return, it was only right that Vh1 honor the women in rap music. The ceremony special gave praise to artists such as Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Salt-N-Peppa and Jersey’s own Queen Latifah. The Rap Pioneers were honored by some of their closest friends and collaborators.

Vh1 Hip Hop honors gave us a blast from the past as they paid tribute to some of the first ladies of hip-hop. Starting things off with Queen Latifah who opened up her tribute with Oscar nominated role as Mama Morton performing ‘When You’re Good to Mama, the Queen had people on their feet as she performed her hits ‘Come Into My House,”Had It Up 2 Here,’ ‘Monie In The Middle’ and ‘Ladies’ First,’ featuring Rah Digga, Lady of Rage, Da Brat and Yo Yo.

The good feeling of rap in the late 80’s/early 90’s weren’t just done yet, as Keke Palmer,Dreezy, Ashanti performed Salt-N-Pepa’s iconic hits ‘Shoop,’ ‘Whatta Man’ and ‘Push It’

I can’t believe Ashanit is still pushing this album BraveHeart that she released back in March and has not done any promotion or acknowledgement of her new LP, until today. The singer who recently turn 34 decided to unleash the brand new video for her French Montana assisted single “Early In the Morning.” Not sure why Ashanti waited this long to release a video from her album that nobody is even paying attention to anymore. It’s time for Ashanti to forget about this album and start working on a new album that she can be consistent with it’s music and videos. Check out the video below.

Ashanti is finally putting out her long awaited album BraveHeart March 4th,  the singer has unleashed her brand new video for ‘ I Got This’ featuring Rick Ross. The Eif Rivera-directed clip was shot in Miami last month.  Ashanti is not planning on stopping there to keep the hype up around her album this year, she also plans to shoot a video for her next single, “First Real Love,” later this month in Jamaica with Beenie Man.

One thing I will say about Ashanti, if she consistently continues to put out music that doesn’t sound like shes stuck in 2004 and does a lot of press for this album she may have a nice little come back. March 4th is not far away so I’m hoping Ashanti has a great promo plan for this album.
