???….?? Thanks for the speech shout out…. ATL black culture and hospitality has hands down inspired so many African Americans…. @diddy as a young kid experienced the "vibe" of Atlanta and it helped shape him into the mogul he is today. When I say we ran these ATL streets together….. WE REALLY DID…and did it BIG even back then. He was here so much you would have thought he lived here…but the fact that Revolt Music Summit is now taking place in Atlanta is HUGE. Learn from the best intern, hustler, C.E.O., and businessman a.k.a. #diddy …u too could be next. This conference was strategically put together to breed winners. Don't miss out. #changingoftheguards #Revolt #diddy #badboy #KimPorterStrong?
