What is with everyone wanting to be a Ciroc Boy?
Don’t these niggas do their research?
The same clowns that supposedly represent the empowerment of ethnic communities are poster boys for “the man”. Diddy must know that Diageo is owned by the same corporate fucks that rappers complain about, but on the other hand maybe he doesn’t care.
“Corporate endorsements are a hella of a drug” (Dave Chapelle voice). Wake up people Diddy sponsors systemic bias and the stratification of race hidden under the guise of a good business and pop culture.
Monkey see…Monkey do…
First Funkmaster Flex and now DJ Khaled…who’s the next Ciroc Boy, will it be Poppa Joe? I will leave you with this….Mimicry is Not the Path to Mastery….
