At last night's VH1 Hip Hop Honors, some of the most iconic rap stars of the 90s came to take us back down memory lane. '90s Game Changers,' as the show was called, featured performances from acts like Mariah Carey, Trina, Trick Daddy, Warren G, and more. But a few moments were particularly special. Havoc of Mobb Deep led a tribute to his late partner Prodigy. Brooklyn rap legends Lil Kim and Fabolous joined in to assist him in performing 1999 hit "Quiet Storm."

Missy Elliott took the cake and clearly hasn't missed a step since her prime years in the 90s. A stage full of dancers decked out in leather from head-to-toe accompanied the Virginia legend in her performance of "She's a Bitch" (also from 1999). Missy hopped out in a similar fit, but her's had a Morpheus-like trench coat attached with a train that resembled a huge ink spill. While on stage, she also broke into a Jersey club remix of the song, produced by DJ Jayhood. Watch the performance below.
