It’s always nice to give flowers to those who mean something to you while they’re still here. And it’s even more special when you can honor icons while helping the youth at the same time.

Queen Latifah has been getting all her flowers recently. After she was honored with the with the Jimmy Iovine Icon Award at the Revolt Music Conference in Miami, the Queen was front and center to be honored at VH1’s 20th annual “Save The Music” gala.

The female emcee was praised for her trailblazing contributions to Hip Hop and her continued efforts to make sure students across the nation have access to music in schools.

Wyclef was tapped to perform to honor his mentor. Queen was hands on with Wyclef and the Fugees back in the back, putting them up on the music industry when they first came in.

"Latifah is family. She’s magical," he said. “She’s been responsible for so many people’s careers including the Fugees. People don’t know that. Latifah put the Fugees on tour before the Fugees were the Fugees. She sees greatness. I love her for that."


The night’s honoree had loads of fun on stage and in the audience with "Power" stars LaLa Anthony and Naturi Naughton during the gala:
