VH1 gives props to hip hop with the launch of HipHop.VH1.com, the online extension of the channel’s fourth annual “VH1 Hip Hop Honors.” Beginning today, the site showcases music and exclusive content leading up to VH1’s on-air celebration, which will honor the music and influence of A Tribe Called Quest, Snoop Dogg, WHODINI, Missy Elliott, the film Wild Style and Teddy Riley and Andre Harrell for New Jack Swing.
It will be broadcast on VH1 and VH1 Soul Monday, October 8 at 10 pm. The site will also be home to sneak peek performances from the show before they air, as well as exclusive online-only performances.
In conjunction with the launch of the hip hop-focused site, VH1.com has also announced the winner of “The Score,” the channel’s search for the best up-and-coming music producer. The winner will create the official score of this year’s “VH1 Hip Hop Honors.” Determined by user votes on VH1.com, Antonio Gonzalez AKA “DJ Satisfaction” of Camden, NJ has been crowned the winner of “The Score.”
