Fresh off the news that he would be included in the celebration of Def Comedy Jam 25 Year Anniversary, in a move that seems long overdue, VH1’s Hip Hop Honors: The 90s Gamechangers will salute Martin Lawrence for his remarkable contributions to the film and television industry.
“Anytime anyone wants to recognize you for your work, it’s an honor. I am looking forward to a really great night of fun and music,” he said in a statement to Billboard.
The 52-year-old’s work in the self-titled sitcom, Martin and the incredibly successful film franchises of Big Momma’s House and Bad Boys, are just some of the reasons the funny man is fit for the honor and more.
Other honorees will include Mariah Carey for her legendary music collaborations with some of the biggest rappers in the 90s. Regina Hall will host the awards show and Missy Elliott is slated to perform.
