Diddy Plans to Be First African-American Owner of 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.”
