Diddy Says He'll Become First African American Majority Owner Of NFL Team

Diddy talks about his dream of owning an NFL team and discusses his relationship with Jay Z.

Upon unveiling his new television network, Revolt TV, Diddy spoke with bloomberg.com about his plans to own an NFL team.

"I love sports, but I'm more of an owner type of guy," Diddy said. "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." 

Diddy also spoke about watching Jay Z transition from Hip Hop to sports with Roc Nation's management of several athletes including Robinson Cano and Kevin Durant. According to Diddy, he has no plans of managing athletes due to his plans to own a team.

"When I see my friend having a sports agency I support him," Diddy said. "When I get the calls, 'Oh, 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 I want to do.' I'm just me. I do my own thing."

Diddy also explained how his relationship with Jay Z is one of mutual respect.

"We're definitely friends, but we definitely push each other," Diddy said. "We're stronger working together and sharing information together instead of divide-and-conquer. It's what we're doing together to change the world. We compare notes. We keep in touch and we make sure that we support each other."

Diddy and Jay Z were at the top of Forbes' Cash Kings 2013: The World’s 20 Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Artists list. Diddy hit #1 with earnings of approximately $50 million, according to forbes.com. Jay Z was at #2 with approximately $43 million earned.

    I think he needs to be worth in over $1 billion first to own a team. It would cost his most of his earnings to own one at this point.

      You don't have to own 100% to be the majority owner all he needs is a 51% stake or the highest stake of all the owners involved. Also all of the NFL teams are not worth 1 Billion. I'd assume some like the Jags are more like 300-400 million range.

      Insight Amir, thank you for having it, lol

      Lmao, like he said, Networth does not mean money in the bank its assets-debt (thats in simplest terms, the calculation is more complex then that) but assets - debt in the jist of it. Besides majority owner doesn't mean he need to buy the whole team, Just a least 50% of it. And F**k the NFL man lol, they are registered as a Non-Profit Organization, which means even though they are making a shit ton of money form merch and tickets and advertisement, our tax dollars are still paying for there shit. Cowboy stadium was subsided with tax payer money. That messed up But More power to Diddy and Jay they are incredibly smart businessmen and i respect them for it.
