Pharrell, Timbaland, & Nelly Furtado to Honor Missy Elliott at 'VH1 Hip Hop Honors'
Missy Elliott will have a star-studded celebration at this year’s “Hip Hop Honors.”
VH1 has announced the all-star lineup for the Missy tribute, which includes Pharrell, Timbaland, Nelly Furtado, Remy Ma, Trina, Tweet, Keyshia Cole, Raven Symone, Monica, Fantasia, Jazmine Sullivan, and the show’s host, Eve.
If fans are getting a bit of déjà vu here, that might be due to the fact that a similar “Hip Hop Honors” tribute was done for Missy in 2007. That year, Timbaland, Tweet, Eve, Fatman Scoop, Keyshia Cole, Ciara, and Nelly Furtado celebrated her career with a medley of her classics.
This year’s “VH1 Hip Hop Honors,” set to air live on July 11 at 9 p.m. EST, comes after the show’s six-year hiatus. Themed as an “All Hail the Queens” event, the show will honor other women in hip-hop, including Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim, and Salt-N-Pepa at New York’s David Geffen Hall at the Lincoln Center.
