The second tribute was opened by actress Joe Bryant. A number of artists like Estelle, Mos Def and Cee-Lo brought De La Soul's hits like "A Roller Skating Jam Named 'Saturdays,'" "Stakes Is High," while the group topped it off with "Me, Myself and I" and a remix of "Buddy!".

Busta Rhymes then took the stage for the third honor, singing Slick's "The Show", followed by Eve singing "Mona Lisa". Slick then raised the temperature, coming out to play his own hits "Hey Young World" and "Children's Story."

Beside giving honors to the mentioned five, the event also held a remembrance segment for soul singer Isaac Hayes who died in August this year. Closing the show was Naughty by Nature who performed "Uptown Anthem" and "Hip Hop Hooray."
