Diddy is set to be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 BET Awards later this month. The award show will be broadcast live from the Microsoft Center in Los Angeles on the night of June 26.
“Diddy has always been a pioneering force in our community, breaking barriers, achieving unprecedented heights, blazing new trails, and, in so doing, raising the bar for all of us,” BET CEO Scott Mills said in a statement.
Past winners of the Lifetime Achievement Award include music dignitaries such as Whitney Houston, Prince, Queen Latifah, Anita Baker, Mary J. Blige, Samuel Jackson, Lionel Richie and New Edition.
Diddy is feeling invigorated as an executive once again with the launch of his Love Records in May. He revealed Jozzy — who he compared to an “R&B Biggie” — as the label’s first signing.
