Sports Anchors Say Diddy Looks Like He "Smoked A Blunt" After Revealing He Wants To Own The Panthers

"He looks like he smoked a blunt and drank a 40. Come on, I’m not taking him seriously.”

When it was announced the Carolina Panthers would be up for sale, Sean P. Diddy Combs took to social media to announce he wants to own the NFL team. Soon after, Colin Kaepernick and Golden State Warrior Steph Curry also threw their hat in the ring. However, not everyone was in support of Mr. Combs' desire to become a NFL team owner.

During KRON-TV's sports segment "The World According to Darya" anchor Henry Wofford began his spiel against Diddy's future business plans by hurling derogatory insults. “The guy looks high right there in this video,” Wofford, a black man, said. “He looks like he smoked a blunt and drank a 40. Come on, I’m not taking him seriously.”

Darya Folsom interrupted Wofford by bringing up Diddy's finances and claimed the mogul doesn't have enough to become an NFL owner. “The problem is, I checked, Diddy is only worth $800 million and the Panthers are valued at $1 billion,” Folsom said.

The video quickly went viral forcing Wofford to apologize.

Wofford alleges the snippet takes things out of context, however Nipsey Hussle wasn't buying the apology and responded to their disrespect with a few facts of his own.

"I'm offended to my core and both these clowns can't even pay the water bill at one of Diddy's estates, but they can't take him serious?" Hussle captioned. 'He looked like he just finished drinking a 40?' You're talking about the owner of a vodka company. 'I don't even know what he does' Forbes do though."

Mr. Combs has yet to respond to the criticism from Folsom, Wofford or anyone who has ever doubted his dreams. However, owning an NFL team isn't the same as being president of a record label, running a clothing company or owning your own premium vodka. Do you think Mr. Combs has the business savvy to properly run the Carolina Panthers organization? Sound off in the comments below,

Nipsey Hussle Rumored To Receive Tribute At 62nd Annual Grammy Awards

This time last year, Nipsey Hussle attended the Grammy Awards as a first-time nominee. The Los Angeles native, who earned a nod for his long-awaited feature length studio album, Victory Lap, hit the red carpet alongside his daughter, Imani, and partner Lauryn London. Despite losing the category to Cardi B, Hussle's landing a nomination after years of grinding in the rap game, was a victory within itself.

“It ain’t expect nothing,” he told Big Boy's Neighborhood last last year of being nominated.. “It’s been some talk around it so if the list would’ve come around and I wasn’t on it, I wasn’t going to be disappointed.”

Two months after the award show, the 33-year-old rapper and entrepreneur was gunned down in the parking lot of his clothing store. Hussle's tragic death seemingly expanded his fans based an illuminated his legacy and influence, and according to a report from Hits Daily Double, the Grammys will pay tribute to the late recording artist during this year’s ceremony. It's unclear who will participate in the supposed tribute as  the Recording Academy has yet to confirm (or deny) the rumor.

Hussle also received three posthumous Grammy nods for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap/Sung performance. The ceremony is expected to feature performances from Tyler the Creator, H.E.R., Charlie Wilson, Lil Nas X, BTS, Lizzo, and Aerosmith with Run DMC, and more.

The 62nd annual Grammy Awards air on Jan. 26 on CBS.

Jim Jones Hints At A Dipset Movie

With recent individual projects from Cam’ron and Jim Jones gaining widespread acclaim, the latter East Coast rap veteran plans to keep that momentum going with this latest news. According to XXL Magazine, Jones hinted at a movie on their rap collective Dipset, which formed in the late 90s but rose to mainstream prominence in the 2000s.

“We started this as young teenagers. We would’ve never thought that we did what we did and ended up where we are and we’re still here today making money off this industry that we dreamed of being in," he said during an interview on Nick Cannon's Power 106 show. "People know we make music and there’s always a nostalgic value when we pop out and do music. But I do believe we got a story that needs to be seen in hip-hop like no other. I know people have a lot of their own glory story, but we really have an action flick that needs to be told.”

Dipset, which is comprised of Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Freekey Zeekey, Juelz Santana, and former members 40 Cal., Hell Rell, and J.R. Writer, churned out hit after hit like “Hey Ma (Remix),” “Real Ni**as,” "Family Ties," “Dipset Anthem,” “I’m Ready,” “Crunk Muzik,” and more.

A Dipset film will not head to production until Santana’s release from prison, Jones also noted. Santana was sentenced to two years in prison for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon. He was also found guilty of possession of a controlled substance. According to his partner Kimbella, Santana is expected to be released in summer 2020.
