Who fucking knew he was even nominated? Joining Eminem and Three 6 Mafia as a hip-hop artist to win an Academy Award, Puff nabbed one for being an executive producer on the the Best Documentary winner Undefeated. Congrats to Sean and all, but am I the only one that feels a certain way that Will Smith hasn’t won one yet? Props to the YBF. SHAKE EDIT: Now that a day has passed, Diddy puts his thoughts on paper.
Waking up the day after such an incredible experience is humbling.
I have had so many dreams, some came true others are still being worked on. That said, being apart of a film that shows the drive and determination of kids who seemingly have no hope, no future, and nothing but obstacles, has taught me that there is a universal spirit of faith and character in all of us that binds us. Their story is my story, is our story, is your story at some real level, we can relate. Once the flame is ignited in us, nothing can stop us. I hope to be that spark that makes everyone believe anything is possible. God bless you all and I thank you for sharing in this honor with me.
Also, head over to Black Enterprise for a list of seven fellow Oscar-winning Black musicians that you may not have known about.
