HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS
By Jack Barnes
After a six-year hiatus, the revered VH1 HIP HOP HONORS returned to celebrate the best and brightest in hip hop with a twist.
Originating live for the first time in its history, tonight’s event in New York City paid homage to the female pioneers, trailblazers and trend-setters who led a movement and infiltrated the ranks of the male-dominated genre to make their voices heard and still do today.

The evening began with an inspiring statement from Black Lives Matter founders Darnell Moore and Alicia Garza, and also included a special taped appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama honoring the women of hip hop.
