How Ya Like Me Now? Hip-Hop Honors 07



Welcome, y’all. We’re finally rolling on our big show and want you to participate by blasting off comments on all the action. Who’s rocking? Who’s looking sharp? Who’s dropping the ball? Where were you when you first heard that track? What MCs are you listening to these days? Stake your claim in the comments section and pass the ball around.

IM a pal right now and get on it, we’re about to start.

10:01: Connecting the dots between Paid in Full and “Laffy Taffy.” Not bad, TM.

10:07: Holla! Guess will.i.am did the best “ra-ta-ta-ta,” but that whole spray of Missy imitators was sweet. Flipping it and reversing it…and what about Missy’s Prince shirt?

10:13: What are Missy‘s hippest tracks? And what’s Tweet been up to?

10:15: Wonder if Eve does look like a Halle Berry poster?Timbaland at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors 2007

10:18: Nelly F. definitely learned a thing or two from her time spent at Timbaland U.

10:20: I’m thinking Mary J’s Chevy tune is hipper than T.I.‘s Chevy tune.

10:24: Diddy rocking Teddy. If you think he’s red-zoning, punch up “My Prerogative” and pretend you’re back in the Arsenio era.

Ne-Yo at VH1’s Hop Hop Honors 200710:30: Dude, when’s Doug E. Fresh getting his day in the sun?

10:30: Let us know if you have Superhead‘s number in yr celly.

10:44: Looks like Virginia has been good to Teddy Riley. Zoom Zoom.

10:47: When Busta‘s adrenaline is up in the trillions, we got trouble. Guess that Tribe salute is going to rock.

10: 50: Anyone here ever mix that wild style mess that Tracy just talked about? Ketchup?

10:59: Lots of old school everything in the Wild Style nod, but leave it to KRS-One to bring Jena 6 into the action.

11:07: Brooklyn is in the house. What’s the cooler WHODINI joint, “Friends” or “Freaks”?

11:11: How many Mr. Magic fans out there? Give mom a call and find out what the story is.

Nelly at VH1’s Hop Hop Honors 200711:13: “If you need a beat, take one of mine” – THAT’S how they shared back then.

11:19: Could these dances have come out out of ATL?

11:22: Keitel rhyming – guess hip-hop has gone into weird places.

11:25: The first disc Snoop bought was “Ring My Bell.” What’s the first one you bought?

11: 28: Quick vote: Does Ice-T still have it?Snoop and Pharrell at VH1’s Hop Hop Honors 2007

11:35: That’s some major bling on Snoop‘s mic hand. They got a safe in the green room?

11:51: No one’s got a voice like Q-Tip.

11:56: Lots on energy going down here. Just about time for some label to swoop in and kick a new disc by Tribe, yes?

11:59: And we out. Who’s up for the Gotti story? Talk amongst yourselves…

Phife Dawg Fights the Good Fight



A Tribe Called Quest is being celebrated for their ingenuity and creativity tonight on Hip Hop Honors, but one of its members, Phife Dawg, gets extra respect for the courage he’s brought to his battle against diabetes. The ailment afflicts a big chunk of the African American population; reports tell us that 13 percent of blacks over the age of 20 suffer with the condition. Phife, one of the Tribe’s founding members, is fighting the condition with dialysis, and a recent switch in treatments has made him feel much better, one of the reasons he was able to participate in the Honors show.

Hip Hop Honors: What You Won’t See On Tonight’s Broadcast


Snoop Dogg at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors 2007After getting to spend a little quality time with Ice-T behind-the-scenes at Hip Hop Honors, there were a few other highlights from the evening that won’t be broadcast on tonight’s show.

* “You Already Knew It, But Didn’t Want to Know It”: Ice-T and Coco have mirrors over their bed.

* Requisite Britney Spears Reference: Salt N’ Pepa made mention of the pop-wreck and the perils of fame when they visited the press room.

* Best advice for up-and-coming artists looking for guidance from their elders: “Not f*cking up $400,000.” — WHODINI

* Mos Def will star as Grandmaster Busy Bee in a biopic of the MC’s life.

* Andre Harrell wants to make the story of New Jack Swing into a Broadway musical.

In addition to the upcoming projects and cautionary tales, some felt moved to comment on the state of hip-hop:

“Hip-hop’s getting raggedy. It’s not quality music anymore.” — Snoop

“I feel like a lot of criticism has been made about hip-hop over the past year. Some of it was quite public, over the past few weeks, in terms of mock battles between artists and their record sales. A lot of people are questioning the substance, and speaking as one of the members of A Tribe Called Quest, I’m happy that part of our legacy was that we were about positivity, music and being substantive and including all people.” — Q-Tip

Pam Anderson Weds Sex Tape Star



pam.jpgPam Anderson has married the man of her dreams – Rick Salomon, the 39-year old sex tape partner of Paris Hilton. What a catch! The couple – who count Kid Rock, Tommy Lee and Shannen Doherty amongst their former spouses – got married in Vegas on Saturday night. The ceremony took place in between Pam’s two shows with magician Hans Klok, followed by a late-night reception. We wish them the best for their couple of months lifetime together! They’ll need it.

Diddy Wants to be a Daddy – Again


diddy1008.jpgDiddy should maybe consider going back to the name Puff Daddy, seeing as he’s got more babies than he does bling these days. The hip hop mogul just officially added another kid to his brood, 15-month old Chance. Diddy fathered the little girl with Atlanta-based hottie Sarah Chapman, and the baby was born while his live-in girlfriend Kim Porter was pregnant with their twins D’Lila Star and Jessie James. DNA tests have confirmed that Chance is indeed a Combs kid, and Diddy has now said, “At first, I wasn’t sure if this was my child. Now that it has become clear she is, I will take care of her for the rest of her life.”

Isn’t Chance lucky? She probably already has a fridge of Cristal chilling in preparation for her 21st birthday. Her crib is now encrusted with diamonds. The next Making the Band boys will have to walk to Atlanta just to bring her cheesecake from Brooklyn. Maybe Diddy has room for another kid to add to his pack? Sure I’m not related by blood or anything, but I’m really well behaved, look adorable in Sean John clothing and appreciate the value of a (thousand) dollar(s). Think about it Diddy! I mean – Daddy.

The FBI Wants to See Kim Nekkid


The NY Daily News is reporting that the FBI “pounced” on photo agent Eric Ford in an attempt to nab the “child porn” pics of an underage Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney. The feds grabbed his computer and some photos, but did not arrest the guy – yet. Ford was pitching the photos as Kim and her sis sexing up the same man, but it seems that the pics are actually of the girls separate and naked and Kourtney engaging in sexual positions with a man. Regardless of what’s pictured, we know why the FBI is hot on this case – they want to see some hot Kardashian action too! F**k searching for terrorists – the weapons of mass destruction are right there in the back of Kim’s pants.

Check out the latest Kim pics below – she’s not naked, but her bikini dress is good enough! [Images: Getty]

Vintage New York


New York’s character progression from Flavor of Love to I Love New York 2 has been something like: villain to anti-hero to hero to disgraced hero. It’s actually kind of nuanced, which is insane for reality TV. But in the beginning, there was one fight in one van featuring New York versus the Flavor of Love girls (especially Rain and Pumkin). Relive the magic of the first time New York let us know that she was the H.B.I.C. with this vintage clip below:

And, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite for tonight’s premiere of I Love New York 2 (at 9/8c), try your hand at I Love New York: Rumble for Romance, an online, Punch-Out-inspired game in which you box to win New York’s affection. You know she loves a violent man.

Annnnd, there’s even more: check this space tonight during the premiere for our special live blog, during which we’ll elicit audience participation. Make like a VH1 promo and watch and discuss.
