Diddy Predicts Hip-Hop's Next Billionaires
In a recent Billboard cover story from September, the Bad Boy Records visionary asserted that Miami and La Flame exhibit the most promising trajectories among the emerging talents, setting them on a course towards billionaire status. Diddy pointed out that it's not just their musical prowess, but their ventures beyond the realm of music that truly set them apart.
“One person that I can say right now is Travis Scott,” Diddy emphasized when discussing who from the new generation is poised for billionaire success.“I can relate to how he’s diversifying his portfolio and really understanding how to take it to the next level.”
He went on to mention Yung Miami, also known as Caresha Brownlee, from the dynamic duo City Girls. Diddy drew parallels between her and Oprah, highlighting the limitless potential she possesses, evident in her ventures spanning clothing lines, television shows, live performances, and engaging podcasts. Diddy admires their work ethic and envisions them shattering barriers in the industry.
Diddy's insight is grounded in the fact that Travis Scott and Yung Miami have cracked the code. Travis Scott has leveraged lucrative brand partnerships with major players like Nike, McDonald’s, Sony, and more, amassing considerable wealth. Meanwhile, the enterprising City Girl, Yung Miami, has explored various avenues, notably with her popular Caresha Please talk show.
