After 6 long years VH1 finally brought the Hip Hop Honors back. This years show honored all female rappers to show that women have helped to pave the way for hip hop. The show highlighted the work of rappers and moguls Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Salt-n-Peppa and more. Check out a few of the best and worst moments from last nights show:
BEST: Teyana Taylor And Lil Mama Shut It Down For Lil Kim
Teyana Taylor and Lil Mama lit the stage up last night in honor of Lil Kim. Both ladies pulled inspiration for their performances from some of Kim’s notorious looks and hype stage presence.
WORST: Lil Kim And Rich Homie Quan Stumbled On Words While Performing Together
Honoree Lil Kim rocked the mic last night rapping some of her most loved songs, during her performance it seemed like Kim forgot some of the words or chose to omit them. Joining Lil Kim to rap “Get Money”, Rich Homie Quan messed up on Biggie’s part – big time. They both seem really unbothered afterwards, as they should be because the performances were all done in good spirit.
BEST: Faith Evans Introduced Lil Kim
Did we just watch history last night? Faith Evans, singer and wife to the late Notorious B.I.G. introduced his longtime girlfriend Lil Kim during her tribute. More than 20 years later, it looks like the two have finally squashed their beef.
WORST: Amber Rose Karaoke Queen?
Amber Rose the new ‘karaoke queen’ did her interesting rendition of Salt-n-Peppa’s “Let’s Talk About Sex’. After listening to that, a karaoke queen? Yeah, not quite. Amber followed up with a promotion for her new VH1 tv show.
BEST: Remy Ma and Fat Jo Go “ALL THE WAY UP”
Remy Ma did a meaningful tribute to all of Hip Hop’s Queens and turned the stage ‘All The Way Up’ performing her hit single with Fat Jo. Right before performing Remy closed her speech to the Queens saying, “Y’all opened doors for me to be ‘All The Way Up’!” and the two took the stage.
BEST: Winnie Harlow Struts Her Stuff
America’s Next Top Model finalist Winnie Harlow walked the runway during the Lil Kim fashion show during her tribute. Winnie wore the rappers purple jumpsuit look from the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.
BEST: Queen Latifah On U.N.I.T.Y

Latifah did a special recognition to female rappers MC Lyte, Da Brat and Monie Love who didn’t receive much recognition during the show.
