Kanye West appeared on stage at the end of the BET Awards on June 26 to honor Didi with the Lifetime Achievement Award. True to character, Kanye covered his face with a mask and balaclava while explaining how Diddy has inspired him throughout his career. He even seemed to get emotional at one point while talking about the legendary rapper.

During his lengthy speech, Kanye even referenced his divorce from Kim Kardashian, throwing some shade at her ex. “I am going to [Diddy] for guidance to date,” Kanye said. “He inspires so many of my choices. So many of my life choices. My wife chooses. And here we are – thanks for that, Puff. Kanye laughed after making the joke and the audience cracked up. Twitter was also immediately flooded with fans expressing their reactions to the shade.

Kim reference aside, Kanye mostly took his time on the BET Awards stage to thank Diddy for being an inspiration to him. “This man survived a lot and knocked down a lot of doors so that we could be here today,” Kanye admitted. “He kicked down so many doors on classism, taste, culture, swag. Puff, if I never told you…I love you.

Kanye also recalled collecting Diddy’s old mixtapes and listening to them at his mother’s house, hoping to one day become like Puff. “He’s my favorite artist,” Kanye said. “Do you see what I’m saying? Favorite artist. All. Not specifically production. There were so many rules in hip hop back then and he broke them all. And kick down all the doors. And understood contracts in a way many of us still don’t. He understood money in a way many of us still don’t.

Kim and Kanye actually attended Diddy’s 50th birthday party together in 2019, but their marriage has since fallen apart. Kim filed for divorce in February 2021, and the two were declared “legally single” by a judge in March 2022. Details of their divorce settlement have yet to be reached.
