Apart from his children, Diddy delighted in the support of his industry peers who came to celebrate his milestone. Among them were his friends, Jay-Z and Beyonce, supermodel Naomi Campbell who remained friends with him after they briefly dated, Usher, John Legend, Quincy Jones, Joni Mitchell, Cardi B and Offset, Jamie Foxx, and a host of other music bigwigs.

ACCEPTING HIS AWARD

At some point during the night, Lil Kim, Faith Evan’s and Diddy’s son, King led the salute to him before the night’s host, Davis took the stage to introduce him.

Diddy wasn’t kidding when he told his audience that he would take his time during his speech. It ran for 45 minutes as he spoke about his journey from his humble days in Harlem, New York to his rise in the music industry as a successful rapper, producer and record executive.

“Every year, y’all be killing us, man…Truth be told, hip-hop has never been respected by the Grammys. Black music has never been respected by the Grammys to the point it should be.”

Diddy explained the pain of artists, producers, and executives who don’t get an even playing field in the business. As such he posed a challenge to the Grammys to get their act together in 365 days.

Diddy’s speech ended with a round of applause from his audience as he dedicated his award to Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce, Missy Elliot, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, and Lil Nas X.
