Puff Daddy Responds To Personality Criticisms

Puff Daddy calls Revolt TV "the new number one name in music," says the network is disrupting the industry.

For those who watched the former MTV reality show “Making The Band,” the scene in which Puff Daddy orders contestants to travel from midtown Manhattan to Brooklyn for cheesecake, may have been one of the most memorable scenes from the show’s second season. And well over a decade after that particular episode aired, the Bad Boy Records CEO has clarified that he’s “not really an asshole” and would never have those at the newly-launched Revolt TV walk to Brooklyn.

Puff playfully addressed his personality and other topics of conversation during an interview with Vlad TV while at an event held for Revolt last month.

“Nah, you ain’t gotta walk to Brooklyn to work for Revolt,” he said. “That was a TV show. I think a lot of people take it literally. I’m not really an asshole to make people walk to Brooklyn. I may just try to test you and see if you can run a marathon though. I’m really into more rigorous things, but I think people have taken the entertainment aspect and maybe think that’s how I am in real life, which I am a little bit though.”

The event held on behalf of Revolt was referred to as an “omnifront” by Puff and consisted of presentations and announcements about the future of the television network. Puff later commended the network for disrupting the industry and becoming “the new number one name in music.”

“This is our first—what we like to call ‘omnifront.’ We don’t wanna call it ‘upfronts’ anymore,” the Hip Hop entrepreneur said. “We’ve come to be disruptive to this industry. We’ve come to make noise. And we’ve come to be the new number one name in music. And this is one step closer to us achieving that goal. We’ve been in existence for five months and it’s beyond my wildest dreams. It’s a dream come true. It’s in New York. I’m a New York boy and man of color.”

First announced in early 2012, Revolt TV officially launched in October of last year. Prior to the launch of the network, Puff shared his plans for Revolt during an interview with New York radio station Power 105.1.

"They changed their business plan," Puff said when asked about BET and MTV. "Sometimes you've gotta stay focused and be one thing and do one thing great. That's what we're gonna do with music. Our whole thing is also having enough fearlessness to play what doesn't normally get played with all the different alternative artists."

    Also to add, I'm sure his defense is people are haters due to his extreme wealth. I can't speak for everyone, but that is just not the case. People aren't into Puffy because he chose to acquire the majority of his wealth through exploiting and demeaning the value of his own culture. If he was really interested in the art of music and his culture he should've used such wealth to promote positive entertainment and social ventures not liquor brands and artists who have done nothing but publicly release music that makes his culture and his people to emersed in shallow ignorance.

    This dude needs to sign out. Signs French Montana, and buys his own artists album by the hundred thousands so it appears as though his lazy rap records are selling real units. And after just that one incident, not to mention the hundreds of other shotty displays of zero integrity this queer has produced, I guess he expects people to believe his mission behind Revolt TV is to give legit artists spotlight and airplay? I call bullshit, this is a desperate attempt to keep himself relevant by trying to control the genuine artists that typically want nothing to do with him. Obviously he's done some homework and noticed no one but him is buying the garbage material his artists are dropping.
