Timbaland to Be Honored at VH1′s Hip Hop Honors

Two-time Grammy winner Timbaland has been added to the list of honorees at the 2010 VH1 Hip Hip Honors. This year’s program will honor musicians from the Dirty South, including Jermaine Dupri, Master P and J. Prince.

According to VH1, the Virginia native will be honored as an innovator for his trademark blend of hip-hop, R&B and electronic beats, which have fueled the careers of several artists including Missy Elliott, Aaliyah, Ludacris and Justin Timberlake. More recently Timbaland — CEO of the Virginia-based label Mosley Music Group — produced tracks for Jay-Z‘s hit ‘Blueprint 3′ album.

The 2010 VH1 Hip Hop Honors will mark the first time that the show has focused on honoring one select region of the country, but the sentiment has not been well-received. Several hip-hop artists including Tony Draper, Uncle Luke and Scarface have excluded themselves from the event, explaining that they feel disrespected for being boxed into categories. “For an East Coast-based show to call themselves showing some f—ing love by making a Southern watered-down version of what the show is supposed to be or what Hip Hop really is, man, I feel f—ed up about that s—,” Scarface said, recently.

VH1′s Hip Hop Honors airs June 7, 2010.
