LL Cool J will be honored by Nile Rodgers at his We Are Family Foundation Gala in April.

According to Billboard, the legendary rapper-turned-actor will receive the Humanitarian Award for his philanthropic work that include programs that encourage literacy, music, and arts for kids and community outreach programs, most notably his Jump & Ball Foundation.

In a statement, LL said:

Hanging with Nile is always a good time. Truly a chic affair, where we party like we are family and dance, dance, dance for a great cause.

I am honored to be recognized by Nile and the We Are Family Foundation and help support the important work they do for our youth.

The Who’s Roger Daltrey will also be honored with the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Peacemaker Award.

Congrats to both gentlemen.
