It was a night to remember as hip hop received honors for having 50 years of history during the annual Grammy awards event.
Fans got to witness some of the biggest stars to ignite the world of hip hop in the mainstream such as Grandmaster Flash, Barshon, Melle Mel, Rahiem, and Scorpio performed seconds worth of “Flash to the Beat” and “The Message.”
The layout of the presentation was strategic as we saw the decades of hip hop’s biggest hits and stars trotted out to represent their era. What fans did expect with this layout was the 90s top female stars to be mentioned or seen such as Lil’ Kim and Foxy Brown, but they disappointingly did not appear after Queen Latifah. It was a surprise to some due to those two paving the way for the artists we see today such as Nicki Minaj and Cardi B.
I hate that every time they do a “hip hop” tribute on award shows, they never include Foxy Brown as if she wasn’t a major female rapper in the 90’s. I’d genuinely like to know why they exclude her from ceremonies like this. #grammys #Grammys2023 pic.twitter.com/vuwiqjEFRX

Nicki Minaj who idolizes her fellow Trinidadian Foxy Brown, called the Grammys out this year, after being snubbed 10 times before, including for “Super Freaky Girl” being on voting ballots in the pop category instead of in the rap category.

Lola Brooke caught up with TMZ at the airport and had praise for Glorilla being apart of the legendary set at the Grammys. Brooke believes she is winning because Glorilla is winning as they are good friends. She also stated how Lil Kim is the greatest and that she has her back despite getting snubbed during the hip hop ceremony of legends.
