Cathy Hughes, Oprah and now Sean “Diddy” Combs. Though concrete details are hard to come by when it comes to this venture, it has been reported that on 12/12/12 Diddy will launch Revolt, a music-themed cable network. Revolt is being described as the new “old MTV” but will cater to African Americans.Comcast and Time Warner Cable are already in talks of distribution.
Sounds like MTV with a BET twist to me.
The commercial, rat pack style, features music from Frank Sinatra’s “Luck Be a Lady” and a star-studded cast living it up in Vegas. The “good life” portrayed in the commercial makes it hard to resist a bottle of CÎROC this holiday season. Peach for me please! Watch the full length commercial below.
In other Diddy news…Diddy is thinking about tequlia now that he has mastered vodka. He tells E!: “There isn’t one particular tequila that I love and I’ve been spending a lot of time in Mexico…So in the next year, you will probably see me going toe to toe with John Paul [Jones DeJoria], who owns Patrón…I’ll be challenging him to who makes the best, smoothest and most authentic tequila in the world.”
Black Rob has been off the scene since his days as a Bad Boy artist. He pretty much was HOT and then he was NOT after an arrest. Though having criminal issues, I have a feeling his sunken career was not just the fault of his own but that of his label. Diddy knows how to pick them but that’s about it. Hey Diddy, there is still work for you after signing an artist. Diddy may just be Diddy’s most successful artist.

We should be seeing new material from Black Rob soon.
