VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens is looking like the ultimate ladies’ night. After previously announcing the four honorees — Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott, Salt-N-Pepa and Lil’ Kim, Billboard can exclusively reveal that Common, Naughty By Nature, Da Brat and MC Lyte, among others, will pay tribute to Latifah.
The ceremony makes its return after a six-year hiatus with a star-studded event that salutes female trailblazers in hip-hop. Others set to participate in Queen Latifah’s tribute include Rah Digga, Suga T and Yo-Yo. The multi-hyphenate herself will also hit the stage to perform “Ladies First” with Monie Love, reuniting on the mic for the first time in many years.
Beyond the tribute and her performance duties, Queen Latifah will also be executive producing the show through her Flavor Unit entertainment company. Rapper Eve will be hosting the ceremony.
VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens will rock New York’s David Geffen Hall at Lincoln Center on Monday (July 11) and air live on VH1 at 9 p.m. ET.
