Diddy Acknowledges

Diddy also speaks about entertaining audiences at IMS Engage.

Diddy recently spoke at IMS Engage for the International Music Summit in Hollywood, California. 

“People pay a lot of money to be entertained,” Diddy said at the event, as per Billboard. “You have to take the audience on a journey. You can’t just push buttons.”

Diddy, who also said he often has to "face the backlash of people’s polarized reactions" to him, said his success comes from hard work and he offers the following in the teaser clip. "If you want to jump into what I do, we have the same 24 hours, brotha." 

Diddy was recently named the wealthiest act in Hip Hop by Forbes. He reportedly has a worth of $700 million. 

IMS Engage, which was held at the W Hotel in Hollywood recently, also featured appearances by Steve Aoki and Moby, among others. The teaser is below.

      The particulars of this backlash are perplexing. Much of it reads as the snootiest sort of school spirit, but it's unclear whether the rap against Puffy is due to his failure to graduate, or to the feeling that, as a hip hop mogul, Puffy is a "ridiculous" option because he doesn't wear wilted grey suit jackets and lie to Americans about public policy for a living. Or maybe some of these folks just really hated "Forever", which is certainly understandable. Mind you, the argument for Puffy's selection isn't that he's amassed a net worth of nearly a billion dollars since ditching Howard for Uptown Records. Dropout or not, Puffy is a major creator within black culture, within American culture, and he reflects well on the university he attended for two years, alongside fellow Howard dropouts Marlon Wayans and Anthony Anderson. Puffy is a star of Howard's legacy.

    Diddy set Biggie up for death. One day his conscience will finally give way and he will do a tell all interview with Oprah.

      He got 9 innocent college students killed at an event he overbooked which cause a stampede and the students to be trampled and crushed to death. In my mind he should feel much worse about that than his overweight cash cow eating some slugs after Pac.

      First of all, most of our people consider that being "real" so he should be getting mad respect from most of you. Right? Now, some of the things you listed above, Puff is absolutely responsible for. I am not the most religious person but there is one thing I am 1000% sure of is the existence of Karma. At times it comes instantly, other times it takes years. No doubt Puff will pay for his past deeds. And so are we. Having said that, some of the things you attribute to him are stretched if you ask me. Such as: Black Rob's for going down was his own stupid decision making. G-Dep? He killed another human being and there is no excuse for that. Even if it was Puff's shady ways that broke his pocket, his still had a choice. I guess we should blame the white folks for that too since they turned us into materialistic animals that worship that might might dollar. The reason you gave for Mase's departure, I simply don't buy it. Loon? Well, same as B Rob and Dep. Ciroc? Let's face it, before Ciroc came along our people were slaving to other brands and spending their whole check just to imitate what they watched in hip hop videos. They still are and they will keep doing it until they are enlightened. So no, although Puff is part of the problem he is not thee problem. My point is, the problem us black folks are facing is much much bigger than Puff or any other individual. Shoot, he may not know it but he too is a victim of the ultimate conspiracy and the machines that work for it. Now I am not talking about white people here because a percentage of white folks are collateral damage too. But yeah, the puppeteers of the conspiracy are definitely all white!!! My bad if I came off as a know it all preaching brother. The truth is the opposite. I am just another brother who doesn't know much, but I am definitely less in the dark than I was yesterday. #tryingtounplug
