Last night at the VMAs, Hype Williams was honored with the Video Vanguard award. It was cool because when they started to air a sort of montage of videos that he has directed, the first 3 that they displayed had Diddy in them (and he was shown in the screen). They were "Big Poppa," "Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)" and "Hate Me Now." Then there were two videos without Diddy and then there was another one in "Mo Money Mo Problems."

When you consider how far back that goes and how those videos helped propel both Hype Williams and Bad Boy, it was strange that he didn't thank Diddy, but did thank Jay-Z, Nas, Kelis, Beyonce, Busta, Missy and others. The last two were understandable, given that they were part of a bringing the videos life thing where Busta performed "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See" and Missy performed "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" with Timbaland, both of which were cool to see. Still, it was strange given the number of Bad Boy videos has done. I don't like to read into things, so I'll guess that it was just an omission.
