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.”
