Foxy Brown Blasts VH1’s Hip Hop Honors
Rap legend Foxy Brown took to social media this week, blasting this year's VH1 Hip Hop Honors... for not including her in the festivities.
This year, the show honored the female greats in the genre, but shockingly left out Foxy and Lauryn Hill.
Foxy posted an image of herself and Hill on Instagram, while expressing her displeasure with the network.
"I Awoke This Morning, Oblivious And Shocked At Our Fans Across The World’s TRENDING Outrage At (Reality Show Network) @VH1’s Non-Inclusion Of LAURYN HILL & FOXY BROWN,” she wrote. "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!"

Despite blasting VH1, Foxy says he's not bothered by the omission, because past accolades mean so much more to her. "We’ve Been Blessed To Set The Bar At It’s Highest Heights," she added. "Most Notably Receiving The 2016 Historic ‘KEY’ To My CITY of BROOKLYN... Therefore, Humbly Speaking The CALIBER Of HONOR I’d Aspire To Are Those ‘UPPER ECHELON’. After All Guys This Is VH1!"
Foxy says she's in the studio working on new music.
This year's Hip Hop Honors returned after a six-year hiatus, and focused on honoring the women in hip-hop, via a show dubbed "All Hail The Queens" -- including Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim, Salt-N-Pepa, and Missy Elliott.
