Diddy Covers GQ / Details Plans For App To Spotlight Local Black Businesses

Published: Monday 19th Mar 2018 by Sam

Diddy has climbed the mountain top of both pop culture and entrepreneurship – but that hasn’t stopped his hustle.

With well over 20 years of success to his name, the man with many names is now looking beyond personal success. He wants to make a renewed impact.

The media mogul covers the April 2018 issue of GQ and besides posing it up for a dapper shoot, he seizes the feature to delve into his plans to take “black excellence” to the next level. Plans which include developing a groundbreaking new app.

Details below…

Diddy On What Motivates Him:

“My culture. I want to be an authentic, unapologetic warrior for black culture and the culture of the street and how it moves. My thing is most importantly to change the narrative of the black race. I can’t relate to anything that isn’t about that.”

Diddy On Developing An App That Will Allow Users To Locate Black-Owned/Black-Friendly Businesses:

“This is not about taking away from any other community. We’ll still go to Chinatown. We’ll still buy Gucci! [laughs]. But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It’s about blacks gaining economic power.

I don’t believe in passiveness. At some point there has to be some kind of fight. I feel like we’ve done a lot of marching. It’s time to start charging.”

Much respect to Diddy for using his platform to empower.

Having reached the level of wealth and influence he has, it’s warming to still see him hungry to impact social change.

    A beard is not for everyone. It makes him look slightly older.

        I agree Caleb. I just love darkskin black men. They are usually well endowed and I love to ride for a long time and get pounded.

    Hopefully it’s not expensive because I’ll pass if it’s OVERLY PRICED!!

    As long as it is black-owned and NOT black-managed. Also, do the products come from black-owned stores? Why did Diddy have to have a disclaimer? You think the China shops and Gucci would’ve had a disclaimer for us? That disclaimer got me thinking who are Diddy and Jay cahootsing with? Before I buy, I will do my due diligence.
