The “Jesus Walks” rapper wore a see-through cap, sunglasses and a baseball cap, this was his first public appearance in months. Kanye shared how influential Diddy was for him.“I go to him for advice to this day,” Kanye told the crowd. “He inspires so many of my choices. So many of my life choices. My wife choices. And here we are, thanks for that Puff.”

West explained that he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to honor Diddy. It’s Kanye’s first choice at an awards show since she was barred from performing at the Grammys in April. “You know I took a little hiatus,” he said. “I said, ‘I want to just, like, declare myself legally dead for a year. Nobody, nobody message me. You know, I just want to be off the grid. And you know, Puff is pretty persistent.”

West praised Combs’ work in the industry, thanking him for the opportunities the singer opened up for others to stand out and grow out of the hip-hop mold at the time. “Any of us in this room, if Puff ever needs us—we need to jump and be there. This man has been through and survived a lot of stuff and broke down a lot of doors, so we could be standing. I know for me—that I could be here today. He broke down so many doors of classism. Taste, culture, swag. Puff if I never told you, I love you. You my brother.”

After receiving the statuette, Combs thanked ‘everyone who has been a part of his life’, as well as his late ex-girlfriend Kim Porter, who died in 2018 at age 47.
