Slick Rick, Too Short Lead VH1 Hip-Hop Honors Inductees

Slick Rick is among the five acts that will be honored at the 5th annual VH1 Hip-Hop Honors event premiering on the channel in October.

The storytelling MC will be joined by Too $hort, De La Soul, Cypress Hill, and Naughty by Nature.

Tracy Morgan is set to serve as host again. Last year the comedian appeared in sketches during the program that challenged fans’ appreciation of hip-hop. “One of the refrains: Have you ever been hit in the head with a BlackBerry by Foxy Brown? Well then you ain’t hip-hop!”

Fab 5 Freddy–who was inducted last year–will executive produce again, along with veteran writer Nelson George.—Evan Waterkneck.
