Hip Hop turned business moguls commonly known to fans as Diddy and Jay-Z are partnering on a business app. The app aims to uplift the African American business community by allowing users to locate black-owned and black-friendly business” in “any given city” according to Sean Combs. (TV One)
He stressed, this isn’t about exclusion, but uplift.
“This is not about taking away from any other community,” he said. “We’ll still go to Chinatown. We’ll still buy Gucci!” He laughed. “But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It’s about blacks gaining economic power.” He and Jay-Z have been talking about this, he said, about moving the race forward actively, by means of: making a lot of money and putting it back into the community. I don’t believe in passiveness. At some point, there has to be some kind of fight. I feel like we’ve done a lot of marching. It’s time to start charging.” (TV One)
