Sean “Diddy” Combs is almost 44 years old and one can say he has probably accomplished the most in the Hip-Hop music world. After graduating from Howard University, he went on to intern for Uptown Records and is now a multi-millionaire. With the launch of his new Revolt TV, he’s already got his mind on his next million. Diddy recently acknowledged that he wants to be the first African American to own an NFL Team.
With his biggest competitor when it comes to Hip-Hop entrepreneurship, Jay-Z, getting involved as a sports agent with Roc Nation Sports, Sean “Diddy” Combs decided to throw himself out in the sports world when he announced to Bloomberg’s Stephanie Ruhle that he will be NFL’s first African American majority owner.
“I’m more an owner type of guy. So I have aspirations to become - it will happen – to become the first African American majority owner. Not having a small stake but actually owning an NFL team. I think it’s time for that. A majority of the players in the NFL are African American but there are no African American owners. So that’s one of my dreams. When I see my friend Jay-Z having a sports agency, I support him. When I get the calls, ‘Oh we need to do Bad Boy Sports,’ I’m like, ‘No that’s not my lane.’ I stay in my lane. This is my lane I want to do. I’m just me. I do my own thing.” Diddy said in the interview.
Diddy remains number one on the Forbes list for Hip-Hop moguls raking in $580 million. His closest competitor Jay Z rakes in at $475 million.
