Missy Elliott may have been celebrated at VH1's 2016 Hip Hop Honors, but there's never—ever—a bad time for the hip-hop legend to take the stage. And so, the ever-innovative Missy Misdemeanor opened the 2017 Hip Hop Honors: The ’90s Game Changers with an electrifying performance of her Timbaland-produced hit, "She's a Bitch."

For the performance, Missy donned a shiny black outfit reminiscent of the one she rocked in the original video for the track. In keeping with the framework of the visual, Missy was also accompanied by a group of dancers wearing the same outfit as they moved in perfect harmony. It's safe to say Missy lived up to her reputation.

Missy's popular track was re-injected into the hip-hop consciousness when rap up-and-comer Ski Mask The Slump God used the instrumental for his song, "Catch Me Outside." Of course, "She's a Bitch" is a classic, so plenty of folks still remembered the tune. But if they didn't before, a new generation was surely steered in the direction of the timeless banger.

Missy's performance was just the first part of VH1's 2017 Hip Hop Honors: The ’90s Game Changers, which is a celebration of all the most pivotal moments of hip-hop culture, and the names and faces that created them. Stay tuned for more coverage of the legend-studded event.
