'That's A Time That's Still Suppressed': Diddy Discusses Biggie's Death, Creating App With Jay-Z In New Interview
Soon to be 50, Diddy continues to do so much, and attests his drive with wanting to support his culture.
“I want to be an authentic, unapologetic warrior for black culture and the culture of the street and how it moves,” Diddy said. “My thing is most importantly to change the narrative of the black race. I can’t relate to anything that isn’t about that.”
The entrepreneur then reveals that he’s working on a special app with Jay-Z that will allow users to discover black-owned and black-friendly businesses throughout cities and neighborhoods across the country.
“This is not about taking away from any other community,” he said. “…But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It’s about blacks gaining economic power.”
During the interview Diddy also spoke about Biggie’s death and how he still hasn’t “dealt with any of that yet.”
“I try to get into it, but…that’s something that just hurts so bad,” he said. “That’s a time that’s still suppressed.”
“If you wanna call me Love, you can call me Love, baby,” he said in an Instagram post. “But I was only playin’.”
