He proves just how limitless he truly  is. Khaled has become one of the most influential creators of our time.

Inner Circle: 
We honor the exemplary Inner Circle with the 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 show Cops, the film Beverly Hills Cop III, the  film Bad Boys II, etc. Leaving their Reggae style stamp on the Music Industry forever.

The late great Betty Wright will be honored with the 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 the icon will be remembered forever in our hearts.

2 Live Crew: 
Iconic, 2 Live Crew couldn't be forgotten either. From their days 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.

"I've been able to see such great talents come up in Miami, really changing the  industry. Since their early beginnings constantly on the grind. We are beyond  excited to honor these artists at the 1st annual Launch Music Awards." Said CEO of  ALMBG & Presenter of the LMA's Abebe Lewis.
