"When you’re around Puff, you just want to be better," speaker Bryan-Michael Cox told guests about Diddy who he credited as a mentor that offered him an opportunity to be greater. "Puff challenged me early on by asking, Son, do you know how hot you really are? I walked away wanting to make even greater music.”
Sean “Diddy” Combs continued the message of mentorship and opportunity with his acceptance speech and accredited his success to being given an opportunity by mentors like Quincy Jones, LA Reid and Andre Harrell.
The annual event, which sees hit producer/songwriter Bryan-Michael Cox honoring a leading business executive’s commitment to music, business and service, also drew many other industry influencers.
Diddy’s donation will be used to fund 10 startup businesses and provide entry into the 100 Urban Entrepreneur Mentor Program..
