‘Hip Hop Honors’ Returns to VH1

VH1 is paying homage to the ladies of hip hop with the revival of Hip Hop Honors.

Premiering on July 11, the program will spotlight female trailblazers and trendsetters who have set the tone and represented hard in such a male-dominated industry.

Though VH1 has yet to release the list of honorees, we’re confident the ladies are more than capable of holding their own and lyrically sparring with the fellas, while also pushing boundaries with witty wordplay, unique styles and charisma that definitely moves the crowd. Just think along the lines of Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, and Lil’ Kim to name a few.

Speaking of these ladies, watch the Queen and Monie Love give sistas props in the throwback video below.

VH1’s Hip Hop Honors airs live from New York, Monday, July 11th at 9pm ET.
