Man, I really enjoyed watching the VH-1 Hip-Hop Honors on Monday night. More to the point, seeing the De La Soul tribute was great. What’s not to like about Q-Tip, Public Enemy, Mos Def, Cee-Lo and friggin’ EPMD covering De La tracks?
I mean, how cool would that be to see Chuck D spittin’ your rhymes, even if he got just like 90 percent of the words right? And EPMD bustin’ out Ego Trippin’ (Part Two)? Damn. Well played, VH-1.
And then Q-Tip and Mos Def come back out for Buddy? Calgon, take me away!
UPDATE: Culture Bully has mp3s of the whole night’s performances.
