Sean Diddy Combs issues a call to action for young voters to stand up and be counted on Super Tuesday


Diddy Declares 2008 “The Year of the Youth Vote”

New York, NY—Diddy issued a challenge to young voters everywhere to finish what they started in the 2004 election and make their voice heard by turning out in force and casting their ballots in the two dozen Democratic and Republican primaries taking place on Tuesday, February 5th.

More than any other group of voters, young people are most directly affected by the issues at stake in this election. From the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, to health care to the rising cost of a college education, young people need their voice to be heard, if there is going to be change on the critical issues.

“Thanks to your VOICE and your VOTE, the political candidates can no longer ignore your concerns about this country and your future. Young people are poised to continue the work that Citizen Change and other organizations started in 2004, when more than 20 million young people showed up at the polls and voted,” said Diddy. “In 2004, you waited in lines, you said enough was enough. And in 2008, you’ve inspired more young people get in the game.”

“Change will only be real when young people across this country go to the polls on Super Tuesday and in November and stand up and have their votes counted. This election is already historic because of who is running in it. It will gain a greater place in history because of who is voting in it.”

According to CIRCLE, voters age 18-29 account for 21% of the voting eligible population account for 20% of registered voters in this election. There are 32 million Millennial voters in the United States, who are spreading out across the political parties and winning their vote will be crucial to both determining each parties’ presidential nominee and who will ultimately become the next President of the United States.

Diddy will be announcing Citizen Change’s plan of action for the 2008 election in the coming months.

Campaign pays tribute to America’s most dynamic and successful individuals in business

New York, N.Y. (December 3rd 2007) – SEAN COMBS, the CEO and founder of Bad Boy Worldwide Entertainment Group (Sean Combs Enterprises) is starring as the new face of CNBC’s American Business campaign airing now on CNBC.

The campaign pays tribute to America’s most dynamic, successful individuals as they share their stories of success in business and failure in the pursuit of excellence, their management style and their hopes for tomorrow.

Sean “Diddy” Combs, now a multifaceted entertainment powerhouse, built his businesses from the ground up and has since been declared “one of the Most Influential Businessmen in the World” by TIME Magazine and CNN. “My whole portfolio brand represents aspiration. I came from Harlem, New York,” he said in the spot, “it’s about wanting the better things in life. I want to make history all the time.”

“I’m honored to be included in this group of America’s chief executives and top business leaders. I’ve worked very hard to get where I am today and the testimonial showcases my philosophy on business,” said Combs.

“When I started Sean John there was a young male consumer that no one was speaking to. He wanted more fashion, more style, more flavor,” said Combs in the ad, which was made by CNBC’s internal marketing team. Each of the fifteen spots from America’s top chief executives and business leaders ends by saying: “I am American business. I watch CNBC.”

At just 38, Combs oversees one of the world’s preeminent urban entertainment companies, encompassing a broad range of businesses including Bad Boy Recording, music publishing, artist management, television and film production, Sean John, Unforgivable Women and just recently vodka.

Sean Combs is the new Brand Manager for Ciroc Vodka. Ciroc is a division of Diageo, the world’s leading, spirits, wine and beer company. Last month Diageo announced a groundbreaking strategic alliance between Combs and Cîroc vodka. Under the terms of the deal, Combs and Sean Combs Enterprises will take the lead on all brand management decisions for Cîroc, while sharing in the future profits of the growth of the brand. This exclusive US multi-year collaboration, which calls for a 50/50 profit split, is a first for the spirits industry and could be worth more than $100 million for Combs. As part of the new alliance, Combs will take the lead on brand management decisions, including marketing, advertising, public relations, product placement and events.

Other chief executives included in CNBC’s American business campaign include Sumner Redstone, CEO Viacom; Boone Pickens, CEO BP Capital; Herb Kelleher, Co-Founder Southwest Airlines; Bob Johnson, CEO, The RLJ Companies, Founder BET; Trip Hawkins, CEO Digital Chocolate, Founder Electronic Arts; Jack Welch Former CEO GE; Mel Karmazin, CEO Sirius Radio; Steve Sabol, President NFL Films; Jeff Grady, CEO, Founder Digital Lifestyle Outfitters; Julie Aigner-Clark, Founder, The Baby Einstein Co.; Tony Hsieh, CEO; Gavin Maloof, Co-owner Sacramento Kings, Palms Casino; Barbara Kavovit, Founder Barbara K Enterprises; Chris Gardner, CEO Gardner Rich, Author The Pursuit of Happyness; Kevin Plank, CEO, Founder Under Armour.

Puffy (Sean Combs) slapped with $19M lawsuit over B.I.G. recording, video

A former business associate of music mogul Sean (Diddy) Combs has filed a $19-million lawsuit against Combs for music by the late rapper Notorious B.I.G.

James Sabatino was a consultant for Combs’s Bad Boy Entertainment Inc.

He says he flew B.I.G., whose real name was Christopher Wallace, to Miami in 1994 to perform a show and record music. The rapper recorded 17 minutes of vocals and the session was also filmed for a video.

The lawsuit claims the music that was made and the 90 minutes of video belong to Sabatino because he paid for Wallace’s travel expenses and studio time. However, a contract was never signed.

Wallace was shot and killed in 1997 in Los Angeles after leaving a party. His homicide remains unsolved and in 2006, the L.A. police department launched an official inquiry into his death.

At the time of his death, Wallace and Bad Boy Entertainment were embroiled in a feud with Death Row Records founder Marion (Suge) Knight and Death Row star, rapper Tupac Shakur.

Shakur was shot to death in Las Vegas six months before Wallace’s killing. Knight has denied any involvement in Wallace’s killing.

Later in 1997, Combs agreed to buy the music and footage from Sabatino for $200,000. Combs gave him a cheque for $25,000, promising the rest of the money in 60 days, according to court documents.

Combs has said he did not provide the rest of the payment because police had named Sabatino as a person of interest in the rapper’s slaying.

Sabatino and B.I.G. were scheduled to meet the night of the killing but Sabatino never showed up.

Sabatino filed the suit from prison. He was sent to jail on an unrelated charge.

The $19 million covers both actual and punitive damages.
