Diddy’s Legacy and Nominations

Diddy’s monumental impact on the music scene has resulted in numerous chart-topping hits and unparalleled global success.

His nominations span across categories including “Best Collaboration,” “Best Rap,” and “Best R&B,” reaffirming his continued dominance in the music industry.

Diddy’s relationship with the VMAs is rich in memorable moments, from his electrifying debut performance of “Mo Money Mo Problems” in 1997 to his breathtaking medley in 2002 and hosting gig in 2005.

The upcoming event marks his first VMAs performance since 2005, adding another chapter to his storied history with MTV. As we anticipate his return, we reflect on his past victories, including winning a Moon Person for “Best R&B Video” (1997) and the “Viewer’s Choice” award (1998).
