Soul Fixin'

VH1 Honors Hip Hop
While many were glued to their televisions hoping to see Sarah Palin make a fool out of herself, hip hop was honored last night in its' hometown. VH1 took over the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City with the taping of its' Annual Hip Hop Honors show, a celebration of artists who helped make hip-hop a global phenomenon. New York's very own Tracy Morgan hosted the festivities, in which Cypress Hill, De La Soul, Naughty By Nature, Slick Rick, and Too $hort were honored. Kid Rock, Ghostface Killah, Biz Markie, Eve, Big Boi and others came out to pay homage. The telecast airs Monday night at 10. Be sure to watch it. Head over to the VH1 Hip Hop Honors site to peep flicks of the red carpet arrivals, the show, and the after party.
