After a six-year hiatus, VH1’s Hip Hop Honors makes its triumphant return Monday, July 11 at 9/8c live from David Geffen Hall in New York City. This year’s theme is ‘All Hail the Queens’ and will pay 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. We’re celebrating some of the most influential artists to enter the hip hop scene: Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott,Salt-N-Pepa featuring Dj Spinderella and Lil’ Kim will all be honored for their contributions and accomplishments. Join the conversation on Twitter with @VH1 and @VH1Music using #HipHopHonors.
