The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) will honor rapper T.I. and legendary record label Motown Records at its 32nd annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards next month.

The awards, which honour ASCAP members who have had a major impact on the legacy of Rhythm & Soul music, will be distributed at a ceremony to be held on June 20 in Los Angeles.

In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Motown Records will receive the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Heritage Award.

Trap music pioneer, actor and label head Tip “T.I.” Harris will be honoured with the inaugural ASCAP Voice of the Culture Award, a special new honour created to celebrate ASCAP songwriters and artists who have had a major influence on music and culture.
