Diddy, Dr. Dre, & Drake Attend ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards

Diddy and Dr. Dre

Sean “Diddy” Combs has received many accolades over his illustrious career, but he marked a career milestone when he was honored by his peers with the Founders Award at ASCAP’s 24th Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards at the Beverly Hilton on Friday (June 24). A buff Dr. Dre made a rare public appearance to present the Bad Boy mogul with the award.

“I had a chance to experience his hustle myself and believe me it’s no joke,” said the West Coast veteran. “I’ve been motivated by this man’s hustle.”

Drake was also on hand to recognize producers Boi-1da and Noah “40″ Shebib as Songwriters of the Year. “I just want to let you know that I love you both and I’m super proud of you, and I’m honored to honor you this evening,” he told the hitmakers.

Others who turned out to celebrate the evening’s honorees included Ne-Yo, LeToya Luckett, Melody Thornton, Too $hort, and Dirty Money’s Dawn and Kalenna. Pusha T joined Miguel for the remix to “Sure Thing,” songwriter Andrea Martin performed Melanie Fiona’s “It Kills Me,” which she penned, and gospel duo Mary Mary received the ASCAP Golden Note Award.
