“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.

“I love music.  I was a DJ first, and when I didn’t like the music out there, I decided to make beats and create music for the fans,” said Lifetime Achievement honoree Timbaland. I’d really like to thank all the DJs that have played my records, and continue to play my records every day. It feels a little weird receiving this Lifetime Achievement Award, because I feel like I’m just getting started.”
