Music: Thirsty Thurdsday

What it is boys and girls? It's been a great week in hip-hop. Monday was VH-1's Hip Hop Honors. This years Honorees were De La Soul, Slick Rick, Too Short, Cypress Hill and Naughty By Nature. Highlights include a tribute to De La by Q-tip, Mos Def, Estelle, Public Enemy (With Flava Flav) and EPMD. The best performance of the night by far was the tribute to the late Issac Hayes by the Roots, Mos Def, Q-Tip, Cee-lo, Estelle, Scarface and Public Enemy, Shit was FIRE!
