Diddy purchases multiple marijuana operations for $185 million and establishes the largest black-owned cannabis company.

Diddy is currently involved in the cannabis industry. To establish the largest Black-owned cannabis corporation in the world, the music entrepreneur spent $185 million purchasing marijuana businesses in three states.

The No. 1 U.S. wholesaler of branded cannabis, Cresco Labs, and Columbia Care have agreed to sell Diddy their licensed cannabis businesses in New York, Massachusetts, and Illinois for $185 million. Diddy made the announcement on Friday, November 4. The first vertically integrated multi-state operator in the country and the world will be created if U.S. and state regulators allow it.

Diddy’s investment will demonstrate his dedication to the cannabis industry’s economic inclusion of marginalized populations. The founder of Bad Boy Records claims that his goal has always been to give Black entrepreneurs additional possibilities in fields to which they have not often had access. In addition, he wants to support Black individuals in developing into leaders in the cannabis industry’s diversification.

According to a press release, Diddy said in relation to the acquisition, “My mission has always been to create opportunities for Black entrepreneurs in industries where we’ve historically been denied access. This acquisition provides the immediate scale and impact needed to create a more equitable future in cannabis.

The business is vertically integrated, so it will be able to grow and produce cannabis products, distribute branded goods at wholesale prices to authorized dispensaries, and run retail outlets.

In addition, Diddy said, “Owning the entire process from growing and manufacturing to marketing, retail, and wholesale distribution is a historic success for the culture that will allow us to promote diverse leaders throughout the ecosystem and be fearless advocates for inclusion.

Diddy shared the historic information and his goal statement on his Instagram page as well. He is also enjoying his 53rd birthday at the moment.

Kanye West criticizes Mark Zuckerberg for removing him off Instagram.

Kanye Omari West, better known by his stage name Ye, is an American rapper, record producer, and fashion designer. He has criticized American internet billionaire and CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, for removing him from Instagram. 

Kanye criticized Mark for booting him from Instagram in a tweet that was accompanied by an old photo of the pair performing karaoke. Zuckerberg was once referred to as “his nigga” by Kanye. 

He stated: “Look at this Mark. How you gone kick me off instagram. You used to be my nigga.”

Ye’s account was suspended over the weekend for breaking the terms of service of the social media site with an ostensibly “anti-semitic” post. 

Following his contentious Paris Fashion Week show, when he displayed his White Lives Matter shirts, Ye also proclaimed war on the Jewish people, prompting Ye to be removed from Twitter shortly after the message.

The rapper purportedly appeared to show West saying that Combs was under the control of Jews in a text exchange between himself and Diddy that he published in a post that Twitter later removed. “Jesus is Jewish,” 

I’m a little tired tonight, but when I wake up, I’m going to kill three Jews. 

The American Jewish Committee (AJC), in a statement, instantly called out West’s language for promoting “anti-Semitic tropes like greed and domination.” His anti-Semitic remarks, however, sparked criticism from Jewish celebrities and lawmakers. 

Kanye West needs to learn how to convey his message without utilizing antisemitism. The musician has incited anti-Semitism throughout the past week, according to the committee.

After repeatedly texting Diddy over the years, Niniola is getting ready to work with him.

Dreams do come true, as Niniola is living her long-held ambition of working with Diddy years after DMing him. View their talk and read about how this incident developed below.

The Queen of Afrobeats and Nigerian diva Niniola have agreed to work together with American music entrepreneur Diddy.

A tale of divine providence and destiny, Diddy and Niniola first met via video chat, with the former urging the latter to approach the collaboration in the following way: “I want you to do it all and send it to me one time when you feel like I’ve given this song my all because it’s our song.” You brought about this a long time ago.

Then Diddy explained how he came to work with Niniola. He remarked, “SPINALL told me about her when I was looking for someone to be on the Afrobeats remix. I call her instead of messaging her because I want to work with her, but I notice that you messaged me in 2018 saying you want to work with me one day.

There are currently no details available regarding the specific Diddy song Niniola is scheduled to contribute a verse to, but the media mogul released a 16-track album in June of this year called Bad Boy Celebrates Diddy: The Artist, which featured diverse talents from Keyshia Cole, R Kelly, Mario Winans, the late Notorious B.I.G. In addition, Diddy released the tune “Go On” featuring Bryson Tiller. Therefore, any of these tracks could be the partnership Diddy stated was an Afrobeats remake.
