When President Obama was running for office 8 years ago, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was one of the leading figured in getting him elected with his ‘Vote or Die’ campaign. Fast forward to today, it seems that Diddy may have different feeling about POTUS.
Speaking to Al Sharpton, Diddy said that since black people were “shortchanged”, Hilary has a lot to prove before she gets the Black vote.

“My number one thing, though, to be honest, is black people. I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game.
“This is politics. You put somebody in office you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged. That’s not knocking the president. …He’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”
He then adds what his hope is for Hilary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton, you know, I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community. … It really makes me feel, you know, almost hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting bloc.”
“The heat has to be turned up so much that as a community we got to hold our vote. Don’t pacify yourself, really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote. It’s a whole different strategy but I think we need to hold our vote because I don’t believe any of them.
“You can get the vote. It doesn’t have to be held that long. But you have to come get it. …You have to bring something with it.”
