2006 Hip Hop Honors Info

I’m not really sure why this is a big enough deal that it warrants a press conference and news story, since the event has taken place in New York the last two years that they’ve held it. Of course it makes sense that they would have something like this here because let’s be realistic, where else are you gonna do it, Atlanta? Ha ha, yeah right.

NEW YORK — A six-day celebration of hip-hop culture, held in the birthplace of the musical genre, was set for October in conjunction with the 3rd annual VH1 Hip-Hop Honors show, network and city officials announced Thursday.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, or "Mike B," as he tagged himself for the day announced the festivities while flanked by two hip-hop legends, entrepreneur Russell Simmons and artist and actor Ice-T.

Bloomberg said it’s important for the city to honor musical traditions.

"That means celebrating an art form that has expressed the realities of city life," Bloomberg said after welcoming visitors to his "crib," City Hall. "As hip-hop has evolved and new artists have emerged, its lessons have continued to be valuable for us."

Ok the ‘Mike B’ moniker and referring to City Hall as his ‘crib’ were both uncalled for, but I’ll give it to Bloomy, he really makes it hard to continue to hate his guts. If me and him didn’t have beef for life over his ridiculous smoking ban, I might be inclined to say that he’s becoming somewhat tolerable.

Sidenote: Why is Ice-T always at these things? I know he’s a legend and all but can’t they mix things up a little with a different old man rapper? I’m sure Kool Moe Dee could’ve made it, I imagine he has plenty of time on his hands these days.

    come on Blood, now your like the mad hater. Its not that we hate on the south. its that up here we’re used to music with lyrical content. something that we all relate to. i was watching rap city before, and its horrible what comes out of the south. they don’t make anything of actual merrit, just fuckin partying and sayin shit no one understands. now i know tv is the worst place to find good music, but it goes to show you the movement you guys defend. whats on top is that snap shit and the shit that even people from ATL fuckin hate, but your whole basis for why your on top is the same movement you hate. there is talent in the south, but that has nothing to do with whats on the radio or what people are buying. also, i don’t feel ny ever lost it, ever. if you wanna talk about sales, you got that faggot 50 running sales that no one is doing. and if you wanna talk about talent, you got papoose, joe budden, joell ortiz and many others in the underground. as far as i’m concerned, ny has and always will have the crown.

    I wondered that too

  19. E From BK Says:

    Okay, I have been on this site for a couple of weeks now and the only thing that is a constant is this East vs. South bullshit. The debate is cool, but most of you kiddies do not state facts; you state emotions. Stop the bullshit! Everything from the East is not fire and neither is everything from the South or the West or the Midwest of the Far East, etc. Truth be told, I like artists that represent lyrically. That Laffy Taffy stuff does nothing for me. That’s one of the reasons I have not been to a club in 2 years. (I live in Atlanta) If you like that type of music and that is your preference then cool, but don’t be mad a cats who like fire lyrics. I think most of the people on here that express their disdain for that Laffy Taffy type of music also let you know they don’t like people like 50 or Cam either, so why are you being so emotional? I have said it before, stop being emotional! Again, we respect Scarface, Stic.man, T.I., Bun B, Outkast, Goodie Mob, Haziq, 4Ize, Killa Mike, and other artists along those lines. It’s that other bullshit we dislike.

  20. E From BK Says:

    I know I fucked yall up with Haziq and 4Ize! All you self proclaimed South representers need to get your weight up and fuck with these cats. That’s who you should be promoting. Do your research!

  21. tyronebiggums71 Says:

    E FROM BK – COULDNT OF SAID IT BETTER, THE PROBLEM IS PEOPLE GET CAUGHT UP IN GENERALIZING THE EAST VS. THE SOUTH SHIT NY CATS HATE MADE NY RAP AND IM SURE DOWN SOUTH HOMIES FEEL THE SAME, BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE GENERAL CONSENSUS WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE PUBLIC IS NY RAP = LYRICS, SOUTH = BEATS AND CRUNK. AND LIKE YOU SAID THEY ARE BOTH COOL THEY ARE JUST DIFFERENT FORMS OF HIP-HOP SO PEOPLE NEED TO LET THEM LIVE SEPERATLY, PEOPLE WHO LIKE CRAZY LYRICS WONT LIKE DEM FRANCISE BOYZ AND YING YANG BUT WE WILL STILL FUCK WITH FACE, OUTKAST AND A BUNCH MORE I DONT WANNA GO THAT DEEP I COULD ON AND ON, PEOPLE WHO LIKE CLUB POPPY GARBAGE AND DONT WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING WITH SUSBSTANCE CANT APPRECIATE THEY FIRE PROVIDED FOR THEM SO FUCK THEM

  22. G-town G Says:

    ^ well said I feel u homie

  23. OMANXL1 Says:

    I agree with E form the BK; It’s all about substance; I prefer lyricism; It can come from anywhere; The South (Early OutKast, Goodie Mob; Scarface; I even like T.I. and Young Jeezy) The West(E-40, Dilated Peoples, Ras Kass, Planet Asia, Defari, Rasco, Aceyalone), East (The Roots, Nas, Talib and Mos Def, Jay-Z, Mobb Deep, Camron). I’ve even heard stuff from the UK I that’s nice, like Roots Manuva. That stuff that Ying Yang and Little Jon and other ATL artists put out is cool for the club or whatever, but hearing it on the radio all day gives me a headache!!!! That’s all I hear on the radio down here in the ATL!! they got me listening too homemade mixtapes!!!!!!!!
