No sleep ’til Brooklyn. During rush hour, it takes about 90 minutes to get from Manhattan to BK, but horrendous traffic couldn’t deter stars current and past from the Def Jam label from traveling to the world’s most popular borough for VH1’s sixth annual “Hip-Hop Honors.” Right in the heart of Crooklyn at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the red carpet for the event was filled with heat (literally — it felt like it was about 120 degrees) and love.
KRS-One must have hugged former Def Jam franchise player DMX on the carpet. The Blastmaster said a definitive “Him!” and pointed to X when asked who was one of the artists that defined the label over the years.
Ludacris arrived with Player’s Circle and Titi Boy took home the award for flashiest bling with a iced-out 747 hanging off of his chest.
As the carpet came to a close, Method Man ran into Kid Rock and the compliments went flying. Meanwhile, Fabolous said hello to fellow BK native Foxy Brown. Inside, Foxy and Onyx’s Sticky Fingaz exchanged numbers before going to their seats.
