During Monday night’s VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens, hip hop noticed that a couple of ladies weren’t invited to the honor show.
Hip hop’s most respected and talented females enjoyed the night of performances, tributes and aspiring words acknowledging the careers of Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim and Salt N Pepa with DJ Spinderella.
Other lady emcees were in attendance like Eve, who hosted the show, Monie Love, Yo Yo, Lady of Rage, Da Brat, Dej Loaf, Boss and others gathered to celebrate the women of hip hop.
Social media took notice that two ladies weren’t in attendance, Lauryn Hill of the Fugees and Brooklyn’s Foxy Brown. The Brooklyn native explained her feelings about being excluded from the VH1 special, with a little bit of shade.
In her post, she explained “Personally, I’d prefer being held to a much higher standard.” The “Ill Na Na” stated after receiving the key to her city recently, a “VH1 acknowledgement“, or in her words, recognition from a “reality show network” is not “the caliber of honor” she’d prefer.
The reason for the post came after the show aired to several fans inquiring on why she had been excluded. It was their outrage that prompted her explanation.
