London: Rapper Ludacris will be honoured with the President`s Award at the Broadcast Music Inc (BMI) R&B/Hip-Hop Awards next month.

The `Area Codes` hitmaker will be feted in recognition of his achievements in songwriting and his global influence over the past 16 years of his career, reportedly.

"We are proud to be honouring Ludacris with our President`s Award. He is a hometown hero to the city of Atlanta, who has had a remarkable career in music, film and television.

"His consistency in the industry, as well as his outreach in the community proves he is more than deserving of the BMI President`s Award," BMI Vice President Catherine Brewton said.
