True or False: Diddy Wants To Open A Biz School

- By Bossip Staff

Diddy’s definitely all about his benjamins. Still not content with his current entertainment, liquor, fragrance and fashion empire, the Bad Boy entrepreneur now has his sights set on launching a business academy in New York. Pop the hood for details.

He tells CNN, “I want to have an academy that’s known for building leaders. I feel that’s one of the things I can have an impact on.” Combs is determined to be a good role model for youngsters and is convinced launching his own school is the best hands-on approach. He adds, “I want to take on more responsibility. I’m still honestly in search of how I can have the most positive effect that I can have.”

We’re not so sure Diddy is the man for molding young minds — just see where that got Usher.

Seriously though — after watching “I Want To Work For Diddy” and “Making The Band” Parts 1-infinity, do we even have one example of someone who has learned from Diddy how to make Sean John-level stacks?

    Hey, he is doing his thing business wise! That no one can deny. I think he should really teach people, though, that you shouldn’t leave your artist high and dry. He treats his artist like he treats his women.

    But other than that ain’t nothing wring with it.

    LESSON 1: Have a more talented close friend be killed so you can profit and take advantage of his death

    LESSON 2: Stop using condoms, don’t pull out and practice this with as many partners as possible

    Whatever. I don’t need advice from him.

  • DontBeScurred

    I’m not convinced of his business accumen or credentials. Yes, he’s very wealthy from selling hiphop-based crap to wannabe ballers based on his “bling bling” persona. Although Diddy has become very rich, his niggga-style spending doesn’t give me the impression he is financially responsible. I’d like to see his success with something outside of hip hop. So far I’m not very impressed by hiphop ‘moguls’ including Russell “Where Da White Women At?” Simmons.

    i’d go, for sure. as long as it’s not televised…

  • http://valstyleonline.com Val

    oh, and re: him not being financially responsible — don’t know if i’d agree with that. he recruited a harvard b school graduate to be his CFO. and his money is very long, so even when we hear outlandish things like his 16 yr old getting a 360k maybach…if anyone can spend like that, it’s him…and oprah! lol.

    @I’m Just Me…

    HELLO!!! Hows everything

  • LeAnne

    I think that this is great. It would give young minds further options in forming their future. Our young people who might not of thought of education, might be encouraged by this, and see that there is nothing wrong with studying.

    Knowledge gain is never wasted!

    Plus there would be a variety of tutors and might not even include Diddy.

    I hope it becomes a reality.

    Positivity ya all!!!!

  • thrasher

    Yeah, gotta give babyboy props for the business sense… That would be a good way of giving back. Dude is a genius! Saw the Ciroc billboard on 132nd and Broadway…LUVS it!

    (typo) Impressionable minds!

  • Rrrrroe Ski Love- A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    HipHop and Barnum and Bailey circus go together. They have a particular niche in business (entertainment)and they both need to stay there. There is no room for HipHop in the real business world. The whole industry is a circus compaired to the real business of the world. In the HipHop industry there are only a few spots at the top, which are already taken by the sharks. If people think that they can do what Russell and Puffy did more power to them. But in reality their are more failures than successes. This also includes the artist who don’t have current hits. They go back to living normal/abnormal lives thinking that their 15 minutes of fame will be back. It’s really sad!

  • sherry

    i think this would be a great idea, escpecially if ascribe to the principles that made him the business man he is today. He can not control human behavior, give him credit, he tried to turn people lives around but they kept letting those streets come in the way. I have made respect for him as a business person and his gring. Can’t stop, won’t stop. also he will incorporate real business teachers.

  • sherry

    sorry “grind” and mad respect for him.

  • combatcook24

    I’d join the school so I can learn the finer points of Artist Jacking, oops I mean Management!!
