One thing is for certain in the history of modern hip-hop music, Diddy was there. In celebration of his 50th birthday, many people online are taking the time to reflect on just how influential his presence in the music industry has been.
Since launching Bad Boy Records in the early 90s Diddy has been working tirelessly to uplift the voices of fellow artists. From Biggie and Mary J. Blige to Janelle Monáe, Sean "Diddy" Combs has helped bring attention to some of the most talented acts in the past few decades. His very own REVOLT TV, a music-focused television network that was created in response to MTV and other channel's shift from music, published articles detailing just how influential the rapper is. Diddy's love for music and his dedication to infusing that passion into the music business resulted in implications that we can clearly see today and shows no signs of letting up.
