Showman, entrepreneur and mogul are a few words to describe Diddy. Revolutionary might be another one if he can pull off his new venture, Revolt TV. Diddy is expanding into the TV business with the new Cable Network Channel launching in July. Above he gives us a first look of what to expect. Below is what he had to say about it:
