According to Rolling Stone, the tribute will feature performances from Sheila E., The Roots, D'Angelo, Janelle Monae, and others.

Following Prince's death in April of this year, The Roots' Questlove penned an essay for Rolling Stone eulogizing the late singer. In his essay, the drummer doted on how Hip Hop Prince was.

BET Discloses Star-Studded Lineup For Prince Tribute

“Prince was an outlaw,” Questlove wrote. “When he was giving interviews on the regular to Cynthia Horner in Right On! magazine, he was telling tall tales left and right. That was Hip Hop. He built a crew, a posse, around his look and his sense of style. That was Hip Hop. He had beef (with Rick James). He had his own vanity label (Paisley Park). He had parents up in arms over the content of his songs to the point where they had to invent the Parental Advisory warning. Hip Hop, Hip Hop, Hip Hop.”

Following Madonna's questionable Prince tribute last month, BET immediately took a not so subtle jab at the pop star's performance with a video that stated the following: "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."

The BET Awards are scheduled to air on June 26.
