The distinguished honor was presented by Grammy Award-winning musician Kanye West and Babyface at the BET Awards 2022 hosted by award-winning actress, writer, and producer Taraji P. Henson live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The esteemed award recognizes industry giants who have not only significantly shaped culture through their extensive careers but have also been transformative leaders that consistently inspire generations by setting a true standard of excellence.

Diddy has contributed so much to the business not only through his own effort but through the acts he’s discovered and produced over the years; many of home took the stage to honor the icon.

Legendary r&b group JODECI delivered an unforgettable performance of their hit single “Come & Talk to Me,” while our Queen of Hip Hop and R&B, Mary J. Blige, took us back to 1994 with a sultry rendition of her Diddy-produced track “I’m Going Down.” There were so many moments and we’ve got them all captured below. Check it out.
