After a six-year hiatus, VH1 Hip Hop Honors is almost here!

Artists Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim and Salt-N-Pepa are set to be honored at this year’s all-female show, and PEOPLE got a preview of their fierce shoot with photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The star-studded evening on July 11 will celebrate the ladies who rose to the top of a male-dominated genre and made their voices heard.

And of course, this year’s show wouldn’t be complete without surprise performances and guests! Common, Naughty by Nature and Da Brat are just a few of the artists who will take part in a tribute to Queen Latifah. The royal rap pioneer will also perform her song “Ladies First” with Monie Love.

“It’s always a humbling experience and an honor for me,” fellow honoree Lil’ Kim previously told PEOPLE about the recognition. “I just thank God. I feel blessed to have such longevity and just be a major piece of history in the industry. It’s a great feeling.”
