Where are the other icons?
VH1 held their Hip Hop Honors tribute show this week in New York City, and it was by arguably one of the best that the network has ever put together. This particular show was dedicated to the women who made a huge impact on hip hop culture over the years, and there were tons of legends in the building. While the show honored Queen Latifah, Salt-n-Pepa, Missy Elliott, and Lil Kim, there were a few that weren’t part of the awards. Foxy Brown was one of them, and she’s now speaking out about being left out.
The Hip Hop Honors tributed to women in rap this year.
This week, the Hip Hop Honors went down in New York City, honoring the likes of Salt-n-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, and Lil Kim for their contributions in hip hop. The show was dedicated to the “Queens” of the genre, with the network even incorporating some of the newer female talents to be part of the tributes.
Many noticed those that were absent.
While there were tons of icons taking the stage with the honorees during the finale, a few were missing. Many social media users mentioned that MC Lyte seemed to be nowhere to be found for the awards show. Angie Stone even blasted the network for snubbing her and her 1970s girl group, The Sequence.
Foxy Brown was one of them, and she has responded.
Foxy took to Instagram to write, “I Awoke This Morning, Oblivious And Shocked At Our Fans Across The World’s TRENDING Outrage At (Reality Show Network) @VH1’s Non-Inclusion Of LAURYN HILL & FOXY BROWN. Anyone Recognized, (Whether The Contribution Big Or Small) I Applaud.”
