Business Jewels: Plugtalk presents another throwback clip. In this video Diddy sits down with his mentor Andre Harrel (RIP) former president of Uptown Records, where Diddy started as an intern.
Diddy talks about his gift of drive, which made him stalk a rapper from his neighborhood for so long, that he eventually called Andre Harrel to tell him, that he needs to give Diddy an internship.
Further on, he emphasizes that besides the work ethic, having “the ear” for a hit is the most important ability you need in the music industry. He also states that his input in his artists fashion made a big impact, which eventually led to him founding “Sean John”.
