Busta Rhymes will be presented with a huge honor this weekend. The iconic rapper will receive the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s BET Awards. The award acknowledges his significant contributions to the music industry and his lengthy career. According to Billboard, his peers will honor him during the event. Artists such as Coi LeRay and Rah Digga, among others, will be paying tribute to his impressive thirty-year career.
Busta Rhymes isn’t the only icon that the award has been presented to. The Lifetime Achievement Award has previously been granted to many notable hip-hop figures. Among those that have received it are artists like Queen Latifah and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. Scott Mills, the CEO of BET, praised Busta Rhymes for his exceptional talent and impact on the culture. He emphasized Busta’s unique hip-hop sound and captivating visuals. Additionally, Mills expressed pride in presenting the award to a visionary and pioneer in the field of rhyme. However, just because Busta is receiving a Lifetime Achievement award doesn’t mean he’s finished.
