    Congrats are in order for one of rap's biggest moguls. Sean "Diddy" Combs --is he still going by "Swag?"-- will receive ASCAP's Founders Award during the performing rights organization's 24th annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. The invitation-only ceremony will take place Friday, June 24th, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The songwriters and publishers of the most-performed ASCAP songs on the 2010 R&B/hip-hop, rap and gospel charts will also be honored.

    Combs joins such previous Founders Award recipients as Dr. Dre, Stevie Wonder, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney. "To be recognized for my contributions to music by ASCAP is a true honor," said the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy said in a statement. "All I wanted to do was make people dance and hopefully inspire others to never settle for anything but their best."

    Just dance!

    Which is your favorite of Diddy's names?
