The Hip Hop Honors is an annual event that airs on VH1. The television special honors old school and golden age hip hop rappers and contributors for their long-term influence and importance in the history of hip hop culture. It features live performances by most of the honorees along with new school artists who have been influenced by them in tribute. The show is taped at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan, New York City.

Common attendees include Russell Simmons, Rick Rubin, MC Lyte, Chuck D, Beastie Boys, Common (rapper), KRS-One, Flavor Flav, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Ice-T, A Tribe Called Quest, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Rev Run, Sean Combs, Doug E. Fresh, LL Cool J, Afrika Bambaataa, Wu-Tang Clan, and many more.

The award show is highly valued, above most hip hop award shows who base their honorees off of commercial value. Rather than for their historical significance.

The ceremony returned on July 11, 2016.[1]
