"I mean, it means everything," she said about being there to support him. "I am just excited to be here. Shout-out to Diddy. It's about him tonight, period, and he's getting the Lifetime Achievement Award."
Meanwhile, Yung Miami wasn't the only one showing love for the prolific producer during the BET Awards.
Kanye "Ye" West gave viewers a surprise when he took the stage to help present Diddy with the award alongside Babyface. And Diddy's sons, Christian "King" Combs and Quincy Brown, talked to ET backstage about what it meant to see their dad being honored.
"Pops been waiting for this moment for such a long time and for him to finally get his flowers and be up there on the big stage doing what he gotta do? I was just proud and he went crazy though," King said.
Quincy added, "It's an emblematic moment, you know? Because, like, we at the house with it, you know? So, we get to celebrate at home, but to celebrate with everybody, you know, that just meant a lot. I mean, I was crying up there just from being proud."
Diddy's moment was one host Taraji P. Henson previously told ET she was looking forward to, citing Diddy's impact on the Black culture as a media mogul.
"Diddy means so much to the culture -- I mean, you can't talk about hip hop, you can't talk about fashion, you can't even talk about alcohol without his name coming up," she noted. "[He's an] iconic, legendary star to so many careers and he should be celebrated. We should give him his flowers while he's still alive to receive them. It's about time."
