While VH1′s “Hip Hop Honors” doesn’t air until October 13, rap’s royalty converged on the Brooklyn Academy of Music tonight to tape the special, which is honoring the storied Def Jam label this year.
Some of the attendees paid tribute to the label’s history with their red-carpet fashion as well. Kid Rock’s Kangol hat, Adidas jumpsuit and dookie chain recalled vintage LL Cool J, while Flavor Flav paid homage to … well, himself, in a white top hat, white shades and, of course, a white clock.
Other artists wore their Sunday best for the occasion, with Method Man cleaning up in a black jacket and white shirt and Trey Songz showing the men how it’s done in a double-breasted gray vest and maroon shirt. Eve played the part of hip-hop’s leading lady in a low-cut black dress, fingerless gloves and a fun yellow-and-black-striped clutch.
