Will Smith is about to add one more award to his shelf.

MTV announced today it will honor the 47-year-old with the Generation Award during the 2016 MTV Movie Awards next month.

Smith has previously been nominated 17 times for a MTV Movie Award and has taken home five.

This year he is nominated for best male performance and the “True Story award” for his role in Concussion.

“Will Smith and MTV have grown up together and share a very cool history,” Executive Producer Casey Patterson said in a statement. “MTV was a part of every phase of Will’s career and he has been a huge part of what defined the MTV culture from the beginning.”

The 25th anniversary award show, which will be hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Kevin Hart, airs on April 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
