Foxy Brown isn’t mad that she was left out of VH1’s Hip Hop Honors show, in fact, she’s thankful.
The Brooklyn rapper ‘s absence from the 2016 Hip Hop Honors was a not-so obvious omission seeing as how she hasn’t released an album since 2001 or mixtape since 2008 and has had some kind of beef with almost every honoree, host and performer that was invited on the show.
But, according to Fox Boogie, there was an “overwhelming outcry from fans everywhere” for her being left off the bill. So, to address the throngs of people who were wondering where she was, Fox took to Instagram.
THANK YOU Beloveds!❤️❤️ And Be Clear Guys, This Is ONLY In Response To The Overwhelming Outcry From Fans Everywhere! I Awoke This Morning, To Our Fans Across The World’s TRENDING Outrage At (Reality Show Network) @VH1‘s Non-Inclusion Of LAURYN HILL & FOXY BROWN.

As you can see, she not only spoke for herself but the notorious Lauryn Hill who was also left out of the ceremony. Is it a coincidence that two women with perhaps the worst reputations when it comes to being professional weren’t invited? Or was it an oversight on the part of VH1? Either way, Foxy’s company doesn’t appear to be missed. VH1’s Hip Hop Honors show reportedly drew in three million viewers on Monday night.
