Monday evening’s “VH1 Hip Hop Honors” ceremony had everyone in their feelings reminiscing about the 1990’s.
The 9th annual event was a nod to all the “90’s game changers” in hip hop, television and film and featured some of music’s biggest icons like Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey and Lil’ Kim.
All of Twitter was there for the 90’s nostalgia, with most claiming that it was hands down the best era for music and not even today’s genre could hold a light to it.
“I don’t care what nobody says, the 90s is the best decade especially when it comes to fashion and music,” commented one Twitter user.
“These songs still feel so fresh todays Hip Hop & R&B could never,” said another.
Others were upset that the honors were only slated to be an hour long instead of at least two hours — because that’s what the greatest era in music deserves obviously.
“Vh1 is disrespectful. Y’all couldn’t make Hip Hop Honors 2 hours at least,” asked one Twitter user.
The “VH1 Hip Hop Honors” show aimed to celebrate hip hop rappers that contributed to the culture. This year, the ceremony was hosted by Regina Hall and honored one of comedy’s biggest legends: Martin Lawrence. He was celebrated for the milestones he created with his comedy series “Martin.”

The 90s was the littest decade ever. Don't debate. #HipHopHonors
