If you have been following the Hip Hop Honors every year like I have, you know that each year certain regions/artists are recognized for their efforts in hip hop.

The show will celebrate The Dirty South and the honorees who infused the southern story into hip hop’s global message. Jermaine Dupri, J Prince of Rap-A-Lot Records, Luther “Luke” Campbell AND The 2 Live Crew, Master P, Organized Noize and Timbaland are being recognized through performances in collaboration with some of today’s hottest talent. Actor/Comedian Craig Robinson (“The Office”) will host.

Some southern artist have expressed their displeasure of how they were being honored or overlooked. Bun B is scheduled to perform and tells why he will support the Hip Hop honors.
