VH1 has decided to have the entire focus of this year’s Hip Hop Honors show to focus on the legendary Hip Hop label, Def Jam.
The show, which takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 9:00 PM, will commemorate the storied label’s 25 years in the industry, including segments on founders Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons.
Also a part of the event, as is now customary, many Hip Hop stars will show to perform some of the label’s biggest hits, both past and present.
In its sixth year, the annual event will be hosted by comedian Tracy Morgan for the third time in a row. It will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Brooklyn, NY.
Last year’s honorees included Cypress Hill, De La Soul, Naughty By Nature, Slick Rick and Too $hort.
