Entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs had a few bold statements to make in regards to his new television network Revolt while appearing on The Today Show. On top of stating that Revolt will be “the number one name in music” Diddy also shared that the station will feature music that other networks are afraid to play.
“I started my own new network. It’s called Revolt and it will be the number one name in music,” Diddy explained. “We will play what the others are afraid to play. We’re bringing the soul back to music. So everybody check that.”
Diddy was also sure to clarify that the true winners of the Best Documentary Oscar, which was awarded to Undefeated the film he executive-produced, were T.J. Martin and Daniel Lindsay the directors of the film.
“I want to clarify that T.J. and Daniel are technically the directors of the film. They’re technically the winners,” said Diddy. “I’m like the Martin Scorsese Jr. So everybody just ran with it like I’m the Oscar winner, but these two young, talented, entrepreneurial directors they’re the guys that [won]…This is called Undefeated, it’s about the North Memphis Tigers. It’s about believing in yourself. It’s about this coach that truly believes in these kids more than they believe in themselves. And then they start to believe in their selves. And it becomes addictive in a sense….It’s truly a human drama piece.”
Revolt is expected to debut much later this year while Undefeated is being shown in numerous cities across the country.
