If you thought we were off-base by wondering why VH-1 is more soulful than BET, then you might have some trouble reconciling that with the return of the VH-1 Hip-Hop Honors. And this year, they're giving A Tribe Called Quest some well-deserved props.
From the VH-1 blog:
Attention Attention hip-hop heads: A Tribe Called Quest have just been added to the list of honorees at this year's Hip Hop Honors ceremony, airing on VH1 on October 8th. Q-Tip, Phife Dogg and Ali Shaheed Muhammad will be hitting the stage with fellow honorees Missy Elliott and Snoop Dogg. In addition, the music's hottest acts will be bowing at the altars of the film Wild Style and the musical style known as New Jack Swing. T.I., Ciara, Eve, Pharrell Williams, The Game, Timbaland, Bow Wow, Busta Rhymes, Common and Nick Cannon are all scheduled to perform.
