JAY-Z & Diddy are the epitome of Black Excellence in hip-hop and it looks like the two are looking to help the black community as they plan to launch an app to locate “black-owned businesses”. This is not the first time we’ve heard of such an app as brother Tariq Nasheed frequently speaks on an app and may be an inspiration to the app. Diddy has not yet announced the official title of the app and he did confirm that it was not “done” at the moment and is still in the developmental stage. Diddy & JAY-Z are slowly but surely becoming more enlightened and conscious of their influence and it’s obvious that they realize that an app like this will help cement their way into history outside of the music. Diddy says “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”.
