VH-1  announces the return of Hip Hop Honors and New Jersey emcee Queen Latifah will be the first artist honored at its upcoming honors show.

The show will take place on July 24 at 9 p.m. in New York and will air live on VH1.

In a press release, VH1 states, “After a six-year hiatus, the revered VH1 Hip Hop Honors is back celebrating the best and brightest in hip-hop with a twist. This year’s live event 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.”

According to VH1, the other female artists to be honored will be announced later this week.
