Dr. Dre, Missy Elliott, Lil Wayne and music executive Sylvia Rhone will have something in common next month: the four individuals will be recipients of the Recording Academy Global Impact Award.
The awards will be presented during The Black Music Collective’s Recording Academy Honors as a celebration of their personal and professional achievements in the music industry.
“I am so thrilled to honor and celebrate these four giants in the music industry,” said Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. “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.”
The Recording Academy Honors is scheduled to take place on February 2 at the Hollywood Palladium just days before the 65th annual Grammy Awards.
