Diddy On Voting Process: “The Whole Sh*t Is A Scam”
Back in 2004, Diddy led the charge on a campaign to get young voters out to the polls, dubbed "Vote Or Die." Nearly a decade later, he has a different outlook on voting altogether.
During a recent Q&A at Revolt's Music Conference, the hip-hop mogul was asked how young people could have their voices heard at the next presidential election. His response? The voting process is "a scam."
"See the things that's tricky about politics is there's so much bullsh*t with it," Diddy said. "We started Vote or Die and... and from the community we're in, we're not with hearing too much of the bullsh*t. So that's why we get disenfranchised, [we're] disconnected because nothing that they're saying actually relates to us. So Vote or Die, and getting out the vote, those things [were] laid out there so people could understand about the process. We started Vote or Die, and the whole process was all full of sh*t. The whole sh*t is a scam."
Despite his views, Diddy made it clear that he's not telling people NOT to vote.
"At the end of the day, I'm not telling you not to vote. But I'm saying be a realist and know that they're motherf*cking kicking some bullsh*t up there," he said.
