VH1's Hip Hop Honors have revealed the five acts who'll be honored at the event's fifth ceremony. If you're a fan of late-'80s/early-'90s rap, this event is pretty can't-miss, as De La Soul, Naughty By Nature, Cypress Hill, Too $hort and Slick Rick will all be celebrated. "This year's five honorees are being recognized for their significant contributions to hip hop culture and for helping to elevate hip-hop into a truly global phenomenon," said Tom Calderone, VH1's Executive Vice President and General Manager. More guest performances will be announced shortly. This year's special will air October 7th and will once again be hosted by 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan. VH1.com will also launch a Website dedicated to the Hip Hop Honors soon.
