Sean β€œDiddy” Combs will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2022 BET Awards.

The hip-hop icon will be honored for his three-decade career in entertainment during the awards show on June 26, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The award β€œhonors industry giants 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,” BET said.

The 52-year-old mogul, whose Bad Boy Records remains one of the most influential hip-hop labels of all time, recently launched his R&B label Love Records where he will release his new album. He debuted his new single β€œGotta Move On” featuring at last month’s Billboard Music Awards.

β€œ 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. β€œHis virtuosity is matched only by his range β€” from music to media, culture, business and philanthropy β€” has exemplified Black excellence. We are delighted to have this opportunity to use our biggest stage to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of our friend Diddy.”
