Is there really such a thing as being “semi-retired”?!
Diddy and DJ Khaled recently sat down with Rolling Stone magazine discussing their career attributes, becoming fathers, and their future ahead.
As for Diddy, he’s in the state of mind of being “semi-retirement” from the music industry.
Diddy via Rolling Stone Magazine:
“If you don’t see my name on all the Top 10 records, that means I’m not making music. I’m bringing Making the Band back in 2020. I’m contemplating, ‘Is there a role for me in music now?; I just know that for me, I would only be able to sign legends. To be honest, my decisions will be made through God. I’m at another frequency and level of music. It would have to be something that God fully put in my heart, like when I heard Biggie or I heard Mary [J. Blige].
Diddy has been in the music game for decades from being the driving force behind Uptown Records to making his own hip hop label imprint, Bad Boy Records, to establishing partnerships with liquor companies, and his newest quest launching his own television network station Revolt.
Diddy’s boss moves will forever be the blue print in music history.
Diddy defining his profession:
“When I look at what I do, I call myself an inventor: an inventor of culture, an inventor of music, an inventor of disruptive ideas. I have to come in and disrupt the place. When I came in with street fashion…there was streetwear, but I took it to a high-fashion level. I had to invent that. When I did Revolt, there was no black-owned network for the hip-hop community. I had to invent that. What I did with Bad Boy, I look at that as inventing things. It’s not like I put myself in a box and follow what somebody else has done. I have to dream the things that have not been accomplished.”
While marketing and producing artists such as The Notorious B.I.G. to 112 and Mary J. Blige to name a few, he also released his own music. Diddy released four solo studio albums including 1997’s No Way Out and 2006’s Press Play.
So does this mean Diddy won’t get back into music if he doesn’t find what he wants in the Making the Band remake?!
Let’s take a walk down memory lane:
What’s your 2 cents?!
