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.
The show kicked off honoring Missy Elliott with a medley of her hits as Remy Ma started things off when she performing “Work It” before Nelly Furtado took the stage to “Get Ur Freak On.” The host of the night Eve hit the stage as she performed her verse on “Hot Boyz,” followed by Trina who did her part to “One Minute Man.” Remy Ma came back on stage to close things out as she performed Missy Elliott’s latest single “WTF (Where I’m From).”
Things didn’t end there for Missy, as Fantasia, Monica, and Tweet celebrated Missy later in the evening with an R&B medley of “Free Yourself,” “So Gone,” and “Oops (Oh My).” The ladies then joined forces for a brief portion of “Lady Marmalade.”
