Rap pioneers Run DMC, DJ Kool Herc and KRS-One, along with Tupac Shakur and Public Enemy, will be among the first hip-hop artists honored by VH1 at its inaugural Hip Hop Honors this fall.

The awards show will pay tribute to groundbreaking hip-hop artists. Rounding out the list of honorees: DJ Hollywood, the dance troupe the Rock Steady Crew, the Sugar Hill Gang and graffiti artists.

VH1 President Christina Norman told The Associated Press that choosing the first group of nominees was difficult.

"Clearly there's a ton of people who have earned and deserved this recognition," she said Thursday.

Although Run DMC and the Sugar Hill gang were among the early rap pioneers, the late Shakur was among one of its more contemporary figures.

Norman said the show's organizers wanted to make sure not just one era or type of hip-hop artist was honored.

"We want to make this show as broad as possible," she said. "People who are in their 30s, maybe they just came into hip-hop through Tupac."

Among those expected to perform: the Beastie Boys, Nas and Public Enemy. The show is scheduled for taping in New York Oct. 3, and to air on VH1 Oct. 12.
