Last month, Diddy talked about expanding his Sean John clothing line to exceed over $500 million in annual sales.
Sean "Diddy" Combs made a somewhat inconspicuous debut into the fashion world with the launch of Sean John. The collection began with mostly jeans, t-shirts and velour track suits, but now boasts $500 million in annual sales. "We have been able, in the U.S., to break down color barriers and break down stereotypical barriers," Combs recently told CNN. "A lot of people, if they see somebody of color, they may think, 'Oh, it's the baggy clothes. It's Hip Hop clothes.' Our line is directly the opposite. It's pure fashion, elegant, sophisticated and fun." (Hip Hop DX)
Appearing on the Home Shopping Network last November, the rap mogul reportedly sold over $400,000 worth of his Sean John fragrance lines.
Talk about a business man. Diddy grossed an average of $10,000 of sales per minute on his recent visit to the Home Shopping Network where he sold out of his fragrance collections I Am King and Unforgivable Men and Women in a total of 40 minutes. The sell out was a record for the Home Shopping Network where over 5,600 units were sold at an average price of $68 for a gross of over $400,00o in sales. After this success you can be sure the the Home Shopping Network will be the new go-to spot for celebrities pushing their products. (Woooha News)
In a recent XXL Magazine feature, Diddy declared his hip-hop legacy was undisputable.
"Hands down, undisputed, I'm the undisputed heavyweight champion of hip-hop. We are going to have to deal with those facts. There is nobody that can f*ck with me with what I do, which is getting busy. We are going across the board, as an entrepreneur, innovator, motivator. Who was there first? Who traveled to Europe first? The first. The first. The first. The first. I was the first." (XXL Mag)
