As expected, Mariah came dressed to impress for the special occasion, rocking a sexy jumpsuit with a gold bra top. The legendary songstress is being honored for all the hip hop collaborations she’s been part of throughout her illustrious career and she couldn’t have been more excited. Before the special aired, she took to Twitter with a heartfelt and grateful message. “Thank you @VH1 for honoring me at #HipHopHonors. Tune in tonight at 9/8c to watch my performance with these amazing collaborators! 🍯🦋,” she wrote. Other performances will include Fabolous, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Havoc, The Lox, Ty Dolla $ign and Xscape. Talented stars and artists like Tichina Arnold, Faith Evans, DJ Khaled and Timbaland were presenters!
Last year’s honoree of the night, Missy Elliot, got the party started with an out-of-this-world performance, while rap queen Lil’ Kim also took the stage during the ceremony. Martin will also be sharing a few words after being acknowledged for impacting hip hop through comedy. His self-titled sitcom recently marked its 25th anniversary, so he’s no flash in the pan. “Anytime anyone wants to recognize you for your work, it’s an honor,” Martin said to Billboard. “I am looking forward to a really great night of fun and music.”
