Visibly missing from VH1’s recent Hip Hop Honors special were female emcees Foxy Brown and Lauryn Hill.
After many fans complained about Foxy’s omission from the honoree lineup, Foxy finally took to her Instagram account to speak out.
“And Be Clear Guys, This Is ONLY Being Granted A “Caption” Due To The Overwhelming Outcry From Fans Everywhere! I Awoke This Morning, To Our Fans Across The World’s TRENDING Outrage At (Reality Show Network) @Vh1 Non-Inclusion Of LAURYN HILL & FOXY BROWN. I’d prefer being held to a much higher standard in my walk. Therefore, Humbly Speaking The CALIBER Of HONOR I’d Aspire To Are Those “UPPER ECHELON”. After All Guys This Is VH1! Truthfully, the only accolade that truly matters to me is of the most high.”
Although fans were losing sleep over her snub, Foxy let it be known that it’s only VH1, and she would prefer being held to a much higher standard.
While this comes as Foxy’s response, we bet if VH1 reached out to her to be honored this time around, she would’ve been all for it.
It seems like they definitely would’ve honored Foxy & Lauryn this round since quite a few were honored, but they can also honor them at a later Hip Hop Honors special. What are your thoughts?
