(AllHipHop News) The Global Spin Awards kicked off NBA All-Star Weekend by paying tribute to some of hip-hop’s most influential DJs.
Snoop Dogg hosted the award ceremony at the NOVO at LA Live, where Jermaine Dupri and Timberland were honored for their contributions to hip-hop, and pop culture in general.
Usher presented Jermaine Dupri with the Breaking Barriers Award and Pharrell presented Timbaland with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
“I’m truly blessed to be honored with the Breaking Barriers Award,” said honoree Jermaine Dupri. “I’ve worked with so many talented artists and DJs to produce great music over the years. The secret to breaking musical barriers is simple – practice makes perfect. For all the DJs out there that have supported and accepted me, I thank you for playing my records and sharing it with the world.
The highlight of the Global Spin Awards ceremony came when Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jermaine Dupri, Snoop Dogg, and Ludacris took the stage for a performance of “Welcome to Atlanta (Coast to Coast Remix).”
