Say what you will about the mogul/actor/rapper’s swagger, but I continue to be inspired by the diversity of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs‘ hustle.
So, when he deemed himself the “Black Sinatra” in an interview that I did with him last year (for Fox Reality Channel), I dug the ambition that sparked that bold proclamation. At that time, he was so passionate about his own acting and producing work that he ended the segment by imploring viewers, “Applaud me ladies and gentlemen!”
Since that interview, Diddy has remained a pop culture magnate by venturing into film, television, and the web, but his credibility as a label exec was challenged when one of the most visible acts on his Bad Boy Records’ roster, Danity Kane, dissolved.
Now, MTV’s Making His Band will profile Diddy as he returns to the studio to record his own high-concept album – Last Train To Paris. There’s a mountain of pressure on his plate to prove that he can pump out a disc that resonates with today’s musical atmosphere, and the show should reveal how much substance and talent lies beneath Diddy’s hype.
After re-watching the interview, I’m already stoked! You?Related Posts
