Sean Combs…Diddy…Puff Daddy is in a class by himself. Since the mid-90s, he’s been on a quest to make it to the top and he definitely did that. He’s been the driving force behind Bad Boy, a variety of artists, projects, Sean John, and Ciroc, making him one of the most successful men in Hip Hop. His story is one to be told and he is telling it in a new documentary, Cant Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story.
Timing is everything with Diddy and he seems to always be in the right place at the right time. Forbes announced today that he’s on the top of the Celebrity 100: The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities Of 2017 list, yet again. The first time he appeared was back in 1999 and since then, he’s continued to work at building his empire. Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story first debuted back in April at the Tribeca Film Festival. It was one of the biggest screenings at TFF and it even included a Bad Boy Reunion performance at the Beacon Theater. The doc is set to drop on Apple Music later this month.
This documentary is an inspiring story about Diddy and his desire to succeed. It takes viewers through the rise of Bad Boy and the work it took to get there. People have all kinds of stories and opinions about Diddy and his rise to fame. He puts his journey out there for all to see with this documentary. The critics’ commentaries should be put to rest once they see it.
This documentary shows that Diddy isn’t all business all the time. It shows his human side, the side we rarely get to see. He celebrates successes, gets upset at failures, and ponders his next move for all the world to see. The footage is amazing and it adds balance to the hard-working “Keep It Pushin'” Diddy we are used to seeing. Music industry big dogs like Jimmy Iovine and Andre Harrell have praised this doc as well. They are pleased with the presentation and the fact that it contains a lot of unreleased footage of Diddy (back then Puff) and some other Bad Boy artists makes this a gem.
Aside from debuting it at TFF and creating the Bad Boy Reunion Tour, Diddy took things to the next level. He teamed up with Live Nation and Apple Music to make it available to subscribers beginning June 25, 2017. This starts a major plan for Apple to start producing exclusive content for its subscribers which could include content from Gary V., Dr. Dre, and James Corden to name a few.
If you missed this film at Tribeca Film Festival, you need to catch it when it drops via Apple Music on 6/25. The story is inspiring, motivating, and something that everyone should see.
