N.Y., June 3rd, 2010 – Contrary
to the music industry buzz, Florida’s hottest rapper Plies has announced that he will not be
performing at the 2010 VH1 Hip Hop
Honors airing on Monday, June 7 at 9:00 PM ET/PT. For
the first time ever, VH1 is honoring a particular geographic region for its
contribution to hip hop and this year’s theme is “The Dirty South”,
celebrating the music, influence and artists of The South.
As a real
southern icon in the Hip Hop world right now, Plies was a key addition
to the performance line-up that was announced in March 2010. However, there is now a scheduling conflict since Plies
had to push the release date of his most
anticipated album from May 25th to June 8th in order to
lower the album street price for his fans. As a result, Plies feels that
it is important to focus on his fans and the days leading up to the release of
his fourth album Goon Affiliated.
“I had to make a choice between personally
meeting with my fans during my album promo tour or performing at the VH1 Hip Hop
Honors and the choice was easy -fans come first,” explains Plies.
Ironically, not only will Florida’s biggest
rapper Plies not be attending or
performing, but Young Jeezy,
Georgia’s hottest rapper right now will also not be in attendance at VH1‘s Hip
Hop Honors specifically celebrating The South. Young Jeezy is one of the rappers featured on Plies fourth album
dropping June 8th with their collaboration Look Like also featuring Fabolous.
promises his fans of the South that he will make this up to them as he has
recently announced that he will be headlining his first national tour being
kicked off weeks after the release of Goon
Affiliated. As a Florida native and lover of the south, it is certain that
there will be a Florida stop along his upcoming tour. For up to date
