On Monday (July 11), VH1 aired their "Hip Hop Honors" ceremony and this year, the theme was female-centric. From Salt 'n Peppa to Missy Elliott, the two hour program paid tribute to the best female MCs in the business. And no one deserved the honor more than Queen Latifah.
Today, many fans know her for movie work and vocal stylings of the jazzy variety. But back in the day, she was a force to be reckoned with in the hip hop scene. Latifah didn't just accept being an inductee with a speech. No, that's not her style. Instead, the Queen took the stage to remind everyone why she has that name to begin with.
She ended up treating the crowd to a medley of songs which began with the classic, "Come Into My House." Then, she was joined by Rah Digga, The Lady of Rage, YoYo and Da Brat to perform another hit track, "Had It Up 2 Here."
As if things couldn't get more hype, Latifah brought the house down when she welcomed Monie Love to the stage. The two closed the set with "Ladies First" and honestly, we're still in awe. For a song that is 27 years old, Queen Latifah ultimately proved she's still got it.
