Notorious B.I.G. to Be Honored at VH1 Show
Yahoo News ^ | 6/29/2005

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.

I am so terribly relieved to see Biggie get his props. Think he could have had a few more AKAs?

Must see TV for felons and those aspiring to be one.

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.

Because they want to know what's going on in this culture?

Of course it is exciting (to these idiots). He was a one time drug dealer who did so to put food on the table for his little girl. These are icons for the left. But any authority figure such as a police officer or some one who wishes to liberate millions of people from oppressive regimes is seen as a terrorist or a nazi. TV is a wasteland

"Other honorees include..."

The first time through I read that as "hommies" (pretty sure that's not spelled right, if it can be spelled right)

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.

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 beside myself over this exciting news. I think I'll go buy some smack and participate in a drive-by in his honor.

Peace out.

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.
