Hitting the stage at the Warner Bros. Studios, the Concussion star received the Generation Award to celebrate his illustrious career in the entertainment business.

"When MTV first gave me this Generation Award, I thought it was code for the 'old-ass dude award,'" Will jokingly said. “I released my first record when I was 17, and this June marks 30 years in this business for me."
