VH1 honors women of hip hop

After a six year hiatus, VH1's Hip Hop Honors awards show is back, honoring women who have made a major impact on hip hop. 

As they walked the pink carpet, the stars honored legends of hip hop who have inspired an industry: Missy Elliot, Lil' Kim, Queen Latifa and Salt-N-Pepa.

With the tragedies of last week on everyone's mind, the healing power of hip hop served as a source of hope.
