Kanye West Honors Diddy With A Lifetime Achievement Award At The BET Awards
Sunday night’s 2022 BET Awards saw Kanye West make an unexpected visit to give Sean “Diddy” Combs with the Lifetime Achievement Award. West referred to Diddy as his “favorite artist” in his address.
“How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings? To think how far we could just make it off of inspiration,” In a full face mask, Kanye remarked after entering the stage. “This is my favorite artist. You see what I’m saying? Favorite artist. Everything. Not specifically production, the drip. You know back then it was so many rules to hip hop. He broke all of them. Broke down all the doors.”
“He broke down so many doors about classism, taste, culture, swag. Puff, if I never told you…I love you,” he added.
In addition, West made fun of both his and Diddy’s “wife choices,” pointing out that they both had wives named Kim.
Diddy’s Speech At The BET Awards
“First of all, I want to thank god. God, thank you so much. Never leaving my side, keeping me in my purpose, keeping me godly, lifting me up off the ground,” Before continuing, Diddy thanked his mum and other people before mentioning “every artist, every producer, every writer, and every executive I had a chance to work. Thank you to all of my fans who have been with me for over 25 years. I love y’all. I love y’all.”
Diddy promised to donate $1 million to Howard University and another $1 million to Jackson State University before leaving the stage.
Whitney Houston, Prince, Queen Latifah, Anita Baker, Mary J. Blige, and other artists previously received the Lifetime Achievement Award in the past include these.
West made his return to an awards show on Sunday for the first time since the Grammys postponed his performance because of “concerning online behavior.”
