VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens is happening right now, and Da Brat, Monie Love and other hip-hop icons just killed their tribute to Queen Latifah. Oh! Did we mention the Queen herself opened the tribute? Epic AF.
Queen Latifah began the performance with a slightly-tweaked version of Chicago’s “When You’re Good to Mama.” (If you forget, Queen Latifah was nominated for an Oscar for playing Mama Morton in the 2002 adaptation of the musical.) She went right into “Come Into My House,” an epic cut from her debut album All Hail the Queen (1989).
And then Queen Latifah brought in the posse. Rah Digga, The Lady of Rage, Da Brat and YoYo joined Queen Latifah on stage for “Had It Up 2 Here.”
The tribute ended with (of course) Queen Latifah’s hit song “Ladies First.” Monie Love and Queen Latifah brought the house down–in fact, we’re still recovering.
Watch the performance go down in the clip above. All hail the Queen, indeed.
