After a six-year hiatus, VH1’s Hip Hop Honors is coming back and this time they are honoring the ladies of rap.
According to the Associated Press, the network plans to air the event live from New York on July 11. No honorees have been announced as of yet (don’t be fooled by Missy Elliott photo above), however, VH1 promises to salute the female “trailblazers and trendsetters” in the male-dominated field.
It’s a safe bet that Queen Latifah, Monica Lynch from Tommy Boy Records and music industry vet Sylvia Rhone would be on the top of the honorees list for this year’s event — but it’s only our guess.
VH1 started Hip Hop Honors back in 2004 to celebrate the pioneering artists in rap. The show ceased production in 2010.
