Diddy has been an influential part of pop culture for more than 30 years, and now, he’ll have the hardware to prove it.

The media mogul, 52, will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 BET Awards on June 26, the network announced on Monday.

The award, which has previously gone to the likes of Whitney Houston, Prince and more, honors those “who have not only significantly shaped culture through their extensive careers, but who have also been transformative leaders that consistently inspire generations by setting a true standard of excellence,” according to a press release.

Diddy (born Sean Combs) founded his record label Bad Boy in the early 1990s, and it’s since gone on to become a hip-hop powerhouse, selling more than 100 million records worldwide.

In addition to releasing music of his own, the three-time Grammy winner also has a successful fashion line and in 2013 launched REVOLT Media & TV, the first Black-owned multi-platform cable music network.
