Last night was the taping of 2007 Hip Hop Honors: A Tribe Called Quest moved butts, Missy worked it, and Snoop dropped it like it’s hot. In short, its hard to believe so many of hip-hop’s visionaries, creators and chart-toppers were gathered together under one roof. You’ll get to see it all on Monday night . Til then, we leave you with a few of our own awards.
Most technically impressive performance: Nelly Furtado, “Get Ur Freak On.” Four-inch heels on huge-ass stairs, singing and rapping in two languages, all with the front of her dress missing.
Most obvious fan award: Diddy, singing along drunken-karaoke style to every word of the red hot New Jack Swing tribute.
Picture of Dorian Gray Award: Teddy Riley, who hasn’t aged since Blackstreet.
Most bonkers moment of the show: Busta Rhymes‘ stage-stomping, ballroom shaking verse on A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario.”
