NEW YORK, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
Plies 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.
