On Sunday night, LL Cool J hosted a hip-hop tribute at the Grammys, which was everything we hoped for. The performance began with a montage of some of the most iconic moments in hip-hop history, bringing up memories of music greats such as Tupac, Biggie, and Aaliyah.

The event was marked by a performance by Queen Latifah and other artists such as Too $hort, Swizz Beatz, Scarface, DJ Spinderella, Salt-N-Pepa, Run-DMC, The Roots, Rakim, Rahiem, Questlove, Public Enemy, Nelly, Missy Elliott, Method Man, The Lox, Lil Baby, Scorpio/Ethiopian King, Ice-T, Grandmaster Mele Mel, Big Boi, Grandmaster Flash, GloRilla, Future, Future, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Drama, De La Soul, and Busta Rhyming with Spliff Star.

Mr. Harvey Mason Jr. Addresses the Audience

The Chief Executive Officer of the Recording Academy, Harvey Mason Jr., had this to say: “For five decades, hip-hop has not only been a defining force in music but a major influence on our culture,” adding that “its contributions to art, fashion, sport, politics, and society cannot be overstated.” I’m so proud that we are honoring it in such a spectacular way on the Grammy stage. “It is just the beginning of our yearlong celebration of this essential genre of music.”

Hit Songs Performed at the Ceremony

Some of the songs performed during the ceremony included “Outta Control,” “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,” “ATLiens,” “Rock The Bells,” “Radio,” “The Message,” and many more.

The performance was a perfect reminder of the impact departed hip-hop artists had on the world of hip-hop, and it was clear that they are still as relevant today as they were when they first burst onto the scene.

The performance by LL Cool J was a fitting end to an incredible night, and it was clear that he did a fantastic job of paying tribute to the history of hip-hop.
