VH1 Hip Hop Honors - The Back Story
This is old news, but I am just now getting around to recapping (after watching a weeks worth of repeats of the VH1 Hip Hop Honors show).
The short story is the screed that is playing out on the interweb about Lupe Fiasco and A Tribe Called Quest and Q-Tip in particular. Nothing like a little bit o' hip hop drama.
Following this situation is not my strong suit ... So I point you to those who get paid to follow the histronics.

VH1 Hip Hop Honors
The VH1 Hip Hop Honors show aired on where else, VH1 (actually it could be on another channel ... heck I wouldn't be surprised to see it repeat on another cable channel in the future).
This year's honorees are:
A Tribe Called Quest
New Jack Swing
It leaves me a bit underwhelmed, but I tuned in to see what was up ... you should have done the same hip hoppers.
It was all good. I was feeling it ... mostly because I am old school and I remember those songs and dances and clothes like it was just last week.
