The Wait Is Over!
Revolt TV has finally launched and Diddy is doing everything possible to promote his new cable network. The hip-hop mogul and self-proclaimed “King of New York” stopped by the Breakfast Club yesterday morning to chat about his new network and all of the things he has planned for the future.
During the interview, Diddy shared a few motivational words as he expressed his goals for his Revolt TV.
It was less than 200 years [ago] that we were slaves. I was really affected by that movie [’12 Years a Slave’] and you gotta understand, I started out as an intern, man. I started out getting coffee, cleaning bathrooms. I started out sneaking on the train from Howard University, and this is really a dream come true. It’s bigger than me. There’s a lot of people out there that want to be somebody, and it really shows that if you put that hard work into it, you can really get it. I got the same 24 hours as y’all do. We all got the same 24 hours. I just want this network to inspire people all over the world that it can be done.
Diddy also spoke about Revolt’s focus as a network as opposed to MTV and BET.
Sometimes you gotta focus and be one thing and do one thing great and that’s what we’re gonna do with music. Our whole thing is having enough fearlessness to play what doesn’t normally get played. Different alternative artists are multi-genre…especially in hip hop. Travis Scott, or let’s say back in the day two years ago A$AP Rocky. Like when people were just discovering them on YouTube, we’re gonna really kind of curate it and be a platform for new aspiring artists to grow, for graphic designers, for shooters, really for the culture, but we’re gonna raise the bar from a performance level and from a video level to make sure that we have a bar of excellence that you have to achieve in order to get played on REVOLT.
Revolt TV officially launched Monday night with a live stream from the Brooklyn home of the late great Notorious B.I.G.
