Diddy Chides Absent Black Executive Hierarchy in the Music Industry

Diddy Variety Magazine

In the new issue of Variety, industry icon chides the industry for seats not occupied by black executives in leadership positions.

are well aware that there is a universal lets-not-rock-the-boat-I’m-just-trying-to-keep-my-job mentality and some of us have even been accused of I-got-mines-you-get-yours thinking that has permeated the industry and the African American culture in many industries for decades.

That’s just as bad as the fact that there are no [black] majority owners in the NFL. That’s what really motivates me.”
