They did the time, but don't get the glory

VH1 decided to honor the people who reinvented the hip hop game in the ’90s. The network invited plenty of special guests who were influential back in the day (along with some who really weren’t) who performed on a set street scene with colorful ’90s graffiti art surrounding the stage. Icon Missy Elliott opened the show with her song “She’s a B**ch,” complete with skin-tight black body suits with futuristic studded black leather clothes on.

Other honorees included names like Mariah Carey, Martin Lawrence, and Jermaine Dupree… but some other influential names were noticeably absent from the guest list and they aren’t happy about it.
