Sean “Diddy” Combs is set to be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s BET Awards.
On Friday, the network announced Diddy as this year’s honoree and has assembled an all-star performance to highlight the accomplishments of the music mogul.
Having founded Bad Boy Records in 1993, Diddy jumped started the careers of the late Notorious B.I.G., 112, Total, Faith Evans, and more. He has secured three Grammy awards and countless gold and platinum plaques. The 52-year-old has also ventured into successful entrepreneurial efforts, such as his widely popular 90s to 2000s clothing line, Sean John and Ciroc Vodka. In 2013, he launched his digital cable network, Revolt TV, which is the home to “Drink Champs” and Yung Miami’s podcast, “Caresha Please.”
The BET Awards tribute will include some of Diddy’s artists, friends, and collaborators, including The Lox, Busta Rhymes, Jodeci, Nas, Lil Kim, Bryson Tiller, Faith Evans, and The Maverick City Choir. The performance is expected to cover an array of Diddy records, both performed and/or produced by him.
BET Awards 2022 takes place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles this Sunday, June 26th, airing live at 8 p.m.
