Diddy Plans to Be First African-American Owner of NFL Team

After conquering film, fashion and now television, what’s next for Diddy? Apparently, sports. The 43-year-old rap mogul, who just launched Revolt TV, wants to own an NFL team.

“I love sports, but I’m more of an owner type of guy,” Diddy told Bloomberg TV. “It will happen. I will 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 that are in the NFL are African-American but there are no African-American owners. That’s one of my dreams.”

In the past, Diddy has been offered to create a sports management company, much like his friend Jay Z did with Roc Nation Sports, but the Bad Boy Records founder nixed the idea.

“When I see my friend having a sports agency, I support him,” he explains. “When I get the calls, ‘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 [ownership], this is I want to do. I’m just me, I do my own thing.”

Currently, Diddy is putting all of his energy into Revolt TV. The rap executive says it’s time for a change in television.

“It’s official. Revolt TV is the new No. 1 name in music television,” he states. “In five years, we will be available on a billion devices. The definition of television has totally changed.”

“Remember it’s not my channel, it’s your channel,” he adds. “And we need y’all.”
