Diddy Includes Jay-Z, Drake and More on His First-Ever Black 100 List
Diddy is getting into the award presentation game. In a series of posts that concluded on Saturday (Sept. 22), the rap mogul revealed the names of 100 "culture creators" who will be receiving a special gift for their inclusion on his inaugural Black 100 list.
The list includes musicians, actors, models, fine artists, fashion designers, business people and journalists, among other individuals whom Puff considers "inspiration." Among the rappers featured are Jay-Z, Nas, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Kim, Rick Ross, Migos, A$AP Rocky and Kendrick Lamar.
Kerry James Marshall, whose painting "Part Times" Diddy recently bought for $21.1 million, also landed on the list. The purchase reportedly marked the highest amount ever paid for an artwork by a living African American artist.
Curiously, Diddy's Black 100 list includes Post Malone, among other White individuals, including Mark Wahlberg and Bad Boy signee Machine Gun Kelly, whose recent beef with Eminem resurfaced allegations this month that Puff ordered the killing of Tupac Shakur. Elon Musk and Anderson Cooper also made the cut.
Puff teased the list with a series of photos showing black boxes adorned with Post-it Note name tags. "I have something special for you," he captioned one of the images on Instagram.
It's unclear what it's inside the boxes, but we will update when we learn more. For now, you can view Diddy's full Black 100 list and his Instagram teaser below.
