Thoughts on Hip Hop Honors

Thoughts on Hip-Hop Honors 2007:

First of all thank you VH1 this is a great thing, no question

- Missy has hits but is she a legend? Still not sold. Does she deserve to be on the same stage with KRS, ATCQ, Chief Rocka Busy Bee and James Todd? I don’t think so. Not dissing her, she is just in a different lane

-if Missy passes the test then a whole lot of folks should be excited. Swizz, Mannie Fresh, Hammer. If it’s all about hits that is a wide list

-And what’s up with her not performing? WTF. She does rep for the ladies I guess

-Pharell had a few too many parts. He is not even a rapper, really

-I was questioning Snoop at first but his segment was dope.

-I heard Ice Cube came out – did some people at the taping think BG was O’Shea or was he edited out?
And why exactly was BG out there
And Keisha Cole was out there a lot without doing a whole loy

-Busy Bee sounds exactly the same

-How old is Grandmaster Caz?

-KRS is the GOAT. period

-The New Jack Swing segment was dizope

-T-Pain killed it. He can move for a big(ger) guy. It is now impossible to hate on him
Good to see Teddy out there
Who was that on stage with him?
Al Blanco made a great point at the Panel on Saturday – don’t get too wrapped up in the romanticizing of the past regarding New Jack Swing. There was beef. So much so that one honoree jumped another. Remember that? Hot Sex On a Platter That’s why Tip had the mask on. Thanks Wrecks N Effect

-Nick Cannon? Uh, why?

-great to see Whodini get theirs

-Kangol doing the Prep may have been the highlight. Jermaine breaking and Nelly doing the Wop down to the floor. And the EPMD dance. Loved it

-Busta, Busta, motherf*cking Busta Rhymes. With the beer belly and all. Hell yeah, Hell yeah

-If you didn’t know Q-Tip likes to perform

Go to the VSpot on VH1. They have dumb ATCQ videos and interviews

I don't think VH1 is the right venue/forum for this. There are too many people that should be honored before Snoop and Missy. Lupe is a joke...why was he picked? Too many inconsistencies. Who is telling the story on our culture?

A credible entity should do it. Something/Someone that has been a staple in the hip hop community. Only 10 years ago, VH1 didn't have hip hop programming. The VH1 I grew up knowing wanted no association with hip hop.

I agree with Snagglepuss...it comes down to us. We need to do it. Just because we don't have an alternative yet, doesn't mean VH1 should be doing it. VH1 has no place doing it...

What do you think Wes? Can Brooklyn Bodega pull it off? I think so...

I like what vh1 is doing
