Last night, the much anticipated MTV VMAs gave us exactly what we were expecting: Greatness. From Missy Elliott’s tribute, to her Vanguard performance, to legendary hip-hop artists performing a medley of classic hits, last night was one for the books. Here are our favorite hip-hop moments from the night.
Megan Thee Stallion tore her pre-show performance down, but we were even more ecstatic when she received her first-ever Moon Man for “Hot Girl Summer,” Meg’s mega hit featuring Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign.
The “Ready Set” rapper showed major love to both the late Aaliyah, who’s 18th death anniversary just passed, and VMAs honoree, Missy Elliott. She and the dress designer, Monte Christo, did that! Peep a closer look at Kash Doll’s dress.
Normani did not come to play, but she def came to slay! The New Orleans native f**ked the VMAs stage UP. She bodied those dance routines and moves from her “Motivation” video, just as we expected. She is definitely next up.
