VH1 Hip Hop Honors 2005

The VH1 Hip Hop Honors was one of the better shows that I've seen. It moved rather fast and that is a good thing. If you want a run down of the entire show, visit Butta's blog. She has a nice review.

What I really enjoyed were the performances by the actual honorees. Although some of the artist did a good job - there was nothing like seeing the orginal artist perform their classics. Salt N Pepa killed it but it was Big Daddy Kane that rocked it the hardest. My man actually did a split. You still got it Kane!

I wasn't feeling the tribute to Biggie. Something about it seemed anti-climatic. It was a buzz kill. This was suppose to be a celebration and going from watching Big Daddy Kane dancing to watching a choir in black robes seemed - morbid.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the 2006 show. I'd like to see them honor Sugar Hill Gang, Dougie Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew, Public Enemy, NWA, Boogie Down Production and Erik B and Rakim.

Russell Simmons and Rev. Run

I'm not sure if this is the look Nelly was looking for.
