Hip hop mogul, Diddy has just released a list of influencers he labeled the “Black 100.” Though he’s yet to explain what the list is all about as or the criteria for the list as some of the entrants aren’t even Black like CNN host Anderson Cooper, Post Malone, Ali Wong, and Mark Wahlberg to name a few.
Diddy’s list is fairly America-centric, but a few outsiders are prominent of the list such as; Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, N’Golo Kante a footballer playing for Chelsea in London, and Maluma, a reggaeton star based out of Colombia.
