Lil Wayne is going to be honored at the Recording Academy Honors during GRAMMY 2023 Week on February 2nd, which will be presented by the Black Music Collective at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
The second annual Black Music Collective event that is sponsored by Amazon Music and Google Pixel Phone will be taking place a few days before the 65th annual Grammy Awards, and they will also be celebrating other a few other honorees that include: Dr. Dre, Missy Elliott and Sylvia Rhone.
Weezy is set to receive a Recording Academy Global Impact award for his professional and personal accomplishments in the music industry to date. The CEO of the Recording Academy, Harvey Mason Jr., had the following to say:
“I am so thrilled to honor and celebrate these four giants in the music industry. Last year’s inaugural event was such a highlight during GRAMMY Week and now with Dre, Missy, Wayne and Sylvia there to pay tribute to this year, it’s definitely going to be another night to remember. I continue to be proud of the work of our Black Music Collective as it’s a vital part of what we do here at the Academy.”
I think a big congratulations to Tunechi is in order!
