Icon Award Winners
We honor the exemplary Inner Circle with an Icon Award at the LMA’s. The Bad Boys have changed the sound of reggae forever. With Grammy Award winning hits such as “Bad Boys” & “Sweat“, they never seem to disappoint. They have achieved great success around America as well as in Europe. With their music being used in numerous shows and films such as the TV show Cops, and films, Beverly Hills Cop III, and Bad Boys II to name a few. Leaving their Reggae style stamp on the Music Industry forever.
The late great Betty Wright will be honored posthumously with an Icon Award at the 2020 LMA’s. This Grammy award winning artist left her print in the R&B community. May her soul rest in peace, as this icon will be remembered forever in our hearts.
2 Live Crew
The Iconic 2 Live Crew couldn’t be forgotten either. From their days of getting arrested for performing the music they wanted to, to then go to the Supreme Court to prove that they had a right to artistically create. The icons are the reason you see that explicit content sticker on the bottom of those cover arts. The memorable and respectable crew paved the way for many artists to be able to create freely. Something we won’t ever forget and always will respect.
