Every year, VH1 hosts a summer award showcalled the VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
This year they are paying tribute to some of the best female rap/hip hop MCs of our time. They appropriately titled this years show: VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens.
The VH1 Hip Hop Honors will be honoring some of the dopest females to crack a mic such as Salt-N-Pepa featuring residential DJ – DJ Spinderella, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, and Lil’ Kim. But wait! Guess who’s hosting the show?… Eve!
Who better to host the night other than Grammy Award winning female rapper, Eve. Although she hasn’t released any music recently, she is a hip hop legend with four amazing studio albums and a slew of hit singles. Eve was a major staple in the rap game back in the day from the late 90s til the early 2000s, it only makes sense.
Ruff Ryder’s First Lady has put her music career on hold for now but she has been staying busy with being a wife and actress. Eve is multitalented and has started in movies such as Barbershop 1, Barbershop 2 and most recently Barbershop: The Next Cut. Barbershop: The Next Cut came out in April 2016, starring rappers and actors such as Ice Cube, Nicki Minaj, Cedrick the Entertainer, Anthony Anderson and more.
Eve’s career in entertainment is untouchable, and it’s exciting to see her honor so many rappers who influenced her career. Queens recognize Queens.
VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens airs LIVE July 11th at 9 p.m. on VH1.
