Another Hip Hop Artist in Pro Sports……

I love hip hop music. I love the NFL. That does not mean though that I want those two to intertwine. We have already seen one artist, Jay-Z, get involved with ownership of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, but the NFL is much different. The NBA is a league that has been run by the hip hop culture for almost three decades now, whereas the NFL has tried to distance itself from anything that would put players in an urban or “thug-like” light. So it is easy to see that there is a conflict of interest here.

Now though, Sean “P Diddy” Combs wants to enter the arean of pro sports ownership. He wants an NFL franchise. I just don’t see this working. With NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell making policies against urban-like clothing in postgame press conferences, how is a hip hop fashion maven like Combs going to be able to promote his brand (SeanJohn) in the league? Because, let’s face it, he’s going to try.

  1. I think it depends on the rapper who wants to be an owner, if it is Diddy who is older and not really involved in the rap game then I say go ahead. If it is some guy like Lil Wayne who would do it for a publicity stunt then that is not OK with me.
