Diddy Appreciates Cassie During His Acceptance Speech At The BET Awards 2022

Diddy was honored at this year’s BET Awards as the lifetime achievement award recipient.

From his trailblazing musical efforts on behalf of hip-hop and R&B to his admirable work in empowering Black businesses and entrepreneurs, Diddy checks off all the boxes for BET’s esteemed award.

After his thrilling tribute performance, Babyface and Kanye West presented Diddy with his award, and in turn, the honoree used his emotional acceptance speech to give flowers to all the people who have inspired him over the years, including his mother, Janice Combs, his late partner Kim Porter, and even ex-girlfriend Cassie.

“I got to give a special thank you to the people that was really like there for me. Bishop TD Jakes. My Chief of staff Christina Corn KK. Glorianne Gibson keeping me free. Yeah, also Cassie, holding me down in the dark times love,” he said.

“I gotta thank every artist, every producer, every writer, and every executive I had the chance to work with, thank you so much,” he said. “Thank you to all my fans who have been with me for over 25 years — I love y’all! . . . I know I’m missing a lot of names, so this is what I want to do . . . every single person, even if I didn’t say your name, that played a part in my life, thank you, thank you, thank you.”

The music mogul also took a moment to share his latest ambitious dream. “We ain’t here just for ourselves, we’re here for our ancestors,” he started.

“God put this message on my heart to you and you and you. The time is now, the time is right now . . . I got this new dream, I got this dream of Black people being free. I got this dream of us controlling our own destiny. This dream of us taking accountability and to stop killing each other. I got this dream of being rich and wealthy and living on the same block!”
