Posted on 06/29/2005 8:19:56 AM PDT by Mike Bates
Both Big Poppa and Big Daddy Kane will get their props from VH1 this year. The late Notorious B.I.G. also known as Biggie Smalls, also known as Big Poppa and old-school rapper Kane will be feted at the second annual VH1 Hip Hop Honors on Sept. 22 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. The show will air Sept. 26 on VH1.
Other honorees include LL Cool J, Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, Ice-T, Salt-N-Pepa and the 1991 film "Boyz n the Hood."
"Our first Hip Hop Honors proved to be an incredible success not only for the channel but also within the hip-hop community. It was a long overdue celebration of the genesis and roots of a genre that has permeated world culture," said the show's executive producer, Lee Rolontz, in a statement Tuesday to The Associated Press.
"This year's honorees run the gamut from MCs to trailblazing duos to an iconic motion picture all of which have had a massive impact on the hip-hop music landscape."
Last year's honorees included the late Tupac Shakur, Public Enemy and rap pioneers Run DMC.
Must see TV for felons and those aspiring to be one.
What time is that on?????? I can't wait to miss it!
like biggie cares anymore .... i wonder how long it will take for someone to say, " Biggie, I know you're up there watching this. This is for you."
Why do you think anybody on freep would give a sh*t about this garbage?? What a freeking blight on the cultural landscape. I am boycotting any company that uses rap in advertizing...
I know you're teasin', you'll have that TiVo cranked up.
That's touching. I think I'll honor him myself by getting a Biggie fries and a Biggie shake at Wendy's.
About 4 seconds after Puff Daddy gets involved.
Been honoring him that way for decades and didn't even realize it.
TiVo...snicker.... Heck darlin, we just got a DVD player a year ago. Don't rush us with that new fangled technology!
Because they want to know what's going on in this culture?
Another year of blatantly disrespecting Vanilla Ice.
No JustICE, No Peace!!!
You're up on me. I just moved from 8-track to cassette.
Anyone want to get a pool going as to when the gunfire erupts?
I wonder if they will have a segment devoted to killing 2Pac?
STOP! Collaborate and listen.
There's songs that I still wait to hear the "click" part way through. The 70's scarred me for life.
I can still, to this day, recite 'Ice Ice Baby' from memory. Yet, I can't remember to pay my bills on time.
yeah, aka dead.
Dog, why you buggin?
The only thing sillier than stories like this is listening to Soledad O'Brien and "pop culture commentator" Toure reporting all the latest 50 ("Fiddy") Cent and The Game news on CNN in the morning. I never can seem to hit the remote control fast enough to avoid the brain cell loss which results from listening to such utter dreck.
Celebrity/rap world news is always good for a big laugh, which is why we enjoy it.
I'm gonna participate in a drive through for them there Biggie fries.
What's not funny about it is that the thugocracy of rap music is ruining its second generation of young black Americans. Frankly, I'd rather have them pay attention to Jesse Jackson than any smart mouthed street criminal in the music world.
what the hell are props???
