Foxy Brown Has a Few Words About Being Left Out of the 2016 Hip Hop Honors

She isn't too pleased about it.

Published July 14, 2016

VH1’s Hip Hop Honors returned earlier this week for the first time in six years, and in honor of the occasion, they decided to spend a lot of the show paying tribute to the women of the genre.

Queen Latifah, Lil' Kim, Missy Elliott and Salt-N-Pepa were all honored during the ceremony, however a few notable names were left out. One of those names, you could argue, was Foxy Brown. The Brooklyn rapper was one of the most important women in rap in the '90s, so when people asked the Honors, or even Foxy herself, she decided to respond on Instagram with a message.

“I Awoke This Morning, To Our Fans Across The World's TRENDING Outrage At (Reality Show Network) @VH1's Non-Inclusion Of LAURYN HILL & FOXY BROWN,” she captioned a split image of herself and Lauryn Hill. “Anyone Recognized, Whether The Contribution Big Or Small I Applaud. Personally, I'd Prefer Being Held To A Much Higher Standard In My Walk, But Fans Went Ballistic; The PEOPLE Have Spoken!”

In elaborating on the more important honor she’s already received, Foxy mentioned the Key to Brooklyn she was given earlier this year. She then took another jab at VH1 and even announced that she was crafting her “incredible return” to hip-hop.

Nicki Minaj was also a notable name missing from an award show honoring the top women in hip-hop. *shrugs*
