From LL Cool J to Lil Baby, the Grammys honored the 50th anniversary of hip hop this year by bringing out a slew of the genre's biggest names.
"Multi-generational!" LL Cool J yelled at the end of the performance by dozens of artists, including Run DMC, Rakim, Salt-N-Peppa, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Queen Latifah, GloRilla and Ice-T — just to name a few.
The artists represented the entire country, from Bay area artist Too Short to Wu Tang's Method Man, who is Staten Island's finest.
The performance, which had the Grammys audience (and the CNN newsroom) on its feet, was curated by QuestLove.
It came after hip hop producer and artist Dr. Dre was presented with an inaugural award named after him.
