You’ve been outspoken regarding the way the president handled Ferguson, what are your thoughts on Baltimore?

Diddy: Baltimore is something that people have to realize is not just something that is just occurring over this one tragedy. … The black community are the forgotten ones – just like people are in poverty all over this country, but especially the black community. So you have a lot of built-up frustration especially in the kids that see their future is bleak and they are being forgotten. People need to pay attention to that. … Something has to change soon.

You have the music, the clothes, and the scent, the vodka line; what else can you do?

It’s philanthropy. So for me, it’s what change can I make. So you were talking about Baltimore and Ferguson. As an African-American man, I have a responsibility in the future. I want to be able to do more things to affect change.
