It’s no secret that hip hop is generally a male-dominated genre, so it’s great to see the ladies being recognized at such an important event. The VH1 Hip Hop Honors begin at 9:00 pm ET, and if you’re not able to watch live on VH1, you can totally keep up with everything that happens by clicking on the live stream above!
