Mariah Carey is being honored by VH1 for a specific reason, and it’s all about her many collaborations with rap artists. The AP reports that Carey’s rap collaborations will be celebrated at the 2017 VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
“VH1 said Monday the singer will be honored at the Sept. 17 taping, dubbed ‘Hip Hop Honors: The 90’s Game Changers,’ at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California. It will air Sept. 18,” the AP reports, adding: “Carey, who has launched countless pop hits, has been known for her collaborations and remixes with rappers, including Jay Z, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Busta Rhymes, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Nas, Snoop Dogg and Diddy.”
Also to be honored at the event is actor Martin Lawrence, with Missy Elliott to perform and Regina Hall hosting.
“VH1 said the TV special honoring hip-hop’s foray into pop culture will also ‘recognize the victims of the hurricanes and provide viewers with ways to take action to help,'” the report adds.
