VIDEO FAB: Hip Hop Honors, 50 Cent, Hampton's Queen?

In case you missed last night's Hip Hop Honors, here's a few performances that made us go Hmmm...:

Fox Boogie and Fabolous performed "I'll Be". Foxy Foxy Foxy.

Ja Rule & Ashanti brought us back to 2003. Even with Ashanti's "dance moves". Nice. And 50 Cent had his VH1 Behind The Music special last night:

Interesting. More vids when you read the rest...

Warren G performed "Regulators" with Trey Songz. I guess Nate Dogg isn't able to perform just yet. He did have a few heart attacks these last couple years.

Eminem and DJ Jazzy Jeff saluted LL Cool J with "Rock The Bells".

And over at Hampton University, people are raising hell about the new "Miss Hampton" Homecoming Queen being a white girl no one has really ever met. The crowned Queen wrote a letter to Pres. Obama saying people hate her because she's white. While the students say she was not elected, no one even knows her and she doesn't even attend Hampton's main campus school. And the school officials have admitted to putting homegirl in the position for a PR move. Really Hampton?

Why would you contact the

Why would you contact the President of the United States and not speak directly to the student body. "We don't shake hands on campus...we hug" was our school way of doing things and it is still embraced to this day. We represent a standard of excellence. The students, and I know because I have family who attends now, had issues with her being a Senior Transfer student who just arrived on campus in Septemeber(satelite location) and was allowed to participate with the students who been there since freshman , sophmore years and who have been preparing for this for years. She doesn't know the student body, having participated in campus activities. MR. HAMPTON UNIVERSITY IS ASIAN and THE STUDENTS EMBRACED HIM BECAUSE THEY KNEW HIM!!!!!!BUTYOU DON'T HERE THAT IN THE NEWS. THE STUDENTS ARE UPSET because she painted a horrible image about HU which is not true. ITS FUNNY HOW YOU WON THE TITLE ON A FRIDAY AND WROTE THE LETTER ON A SUNDAY.....HOW MUCH TORMENT WERE YOU GOING THROUGH FOR YOU TO WRITE PRESIDENT IN ONE DAY!!! YOU HAD IT PLAN GIRL.. OH, DID I MEANTION THAT MISS HAMPTON UNIVERSITY COMPETES IN THE MISS VIRGINIA PAGEANT, THEN MISS AMERICA PAGEANT...HMMMMMMMMM.....I GUESS YOUR PLATFORM WILL BE "DIVERSITY". SOUNDS LIKE YOU SET THIS UP! Homecoming should be interesting.

Yeah...: Hmm…it’s always

Yeah...: Hmm…it’s always great to show diversity in a community already struggling with self-hate issues…same ol, ol…it was also intersting to see Kim K. on the cover of a South African mens magazine… The best part of the Honors show was Jazzy Jeff. I still cannot bring myself to like Eminem after the comments he made about black women. That shit is so old. Get over it already. Theres not much anyone can do about it. It's pretty obvious to anyone that he's not a racist. I don't know what else you want him to do.

Why this Hampton

Why this Hampton hotmessedness in the name of diversity? I smell elitist buffoonery. And why is she writing the President about this foolishness? Do better Hamp U. SMH Looks like Em was the bright spot in the Hip Hop awards. At the start of Rock the Bells, I swear he sounded just like LL. Rockin a Kango would have been the hottness though. kind

AHHH!! GO REAL HU!! HOWARD!!

AHHH!! GO REAL HU!! HOWARD!! CLASS OF '06 COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES! Bison til the day I DIE!! *tears of joy* TrueBison: All the more reason why Hampton could never be like the REAL HU. Howard, stand up! LOL.But seriously, there’s so much campus politics and questionable antics, it’s really unfortunate for students attending this school looking for that enlightening HBCU experience. The student body seems to have no sayso in what occurs on their campus. The dress code, curfews, “no natural hair” controversy, censorship in the newspaper, and now this debacle. They can’t even nominate their own queens! The administration hand-picked her. I know The Institute has a largely assimilationist value system, but this strategic “diversity pick” takes things a bit far. Now you have to compete to have Black beauty & achievement recognized on a Black campus? Why hasn’t there been a protest? Or why don’t the studentspetition for the president’s resignation? He seems to be putting those poor kids through quite a bit, and really dragging the school’s name and HBCU’s reputations through the mud in the process.

OMG, will people just get

OMG, will people just get over this whole Miss HU thing?! OK, the Hawaiian girl won. So the fuck what. I just transferred from HU last year and the pagaents are always on some BS. If an AKA wins the Alpha pagaent, then everybody says its rigged. If a talented yet lame ass person wins anything period, everyone asks WTF and clowns her for days. It is what it is.The real issue at hand is not her color but the process of judging...how do they pick these damn girls that no one knows, that aren't really involved, and no kind of social standing? That's what a homecoming queen is! And I could see if it was the girl with the best talent or the smartest chick but no, they always seem to pick who they feel is "pretty" and usually that person is not qualified to represent the University. I'm not surprised that its a PR stunt because President Harvey is forever doing something that is unhanded and shady that always has a negative effect on the University. Yes, he contributed alot to the University during his tenure as President but it's time for his ass to go.

M3Z: @B …Hampton is not the

M3Z: @B …Hampton is not the first HBCU to have a white homecoming queen. Kentucky State is the first. There is an artilce on AOL Black voices (google it) about the homecoming queen…I believe that there will be others KY state and Hampton are just the early few to do so. At least KY State's quenn got out there campaigned and EARNED IT. The first white valdictorian at Morehouse also earned his. Now, if it was handed to her by some community judges, then I understand the lack of students' respect.

HU96: Yup…I smell Harvey

HU96: Yup…I smell Harvey all over this one. Damn shame. They need to go back to the student body voting like when I was a student Too late, HBCU Kentucky State beat him to it. And she got out there and campaigned and was ELECTED BY THE STUDENTS!

If that was a PR move on

If that was a PR move on behalf of the school prez he lose points. But if it was for the intention of promoting diversity I can't complain. I think it's a good idea. I don't care what anyone say, in my eyes HBCU's are legal segregation.

I liked the awards but I was pretty disappointed I didn't see Jay-Z, Rhianna, Kanye, or LL Cool J perform or even be there in person. And for the murder inc. reunion I wish they could have had Charlie Baltimore. That would have set sh** off! And what's really hood Hampton?
