Fresh off of his successful REVOLT Summit in Atlanta, Sean “Diddy” Combs and AT&T are gearing up for the conference’s next installment in Los Angeles. The summit’s format for the Golden State will mirror that of its predecessor and feature hot topic conversations with a panel of professionals and industry power players looking to drop knowledge on the culture and business of hip hop.

Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and the label’s president Terrence “Punch” Henderson are said to be co-chairs of the Los Angeles summit. The L.A.-based record label hosts a roster of successful artists including Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolBoy Q, Ab-Soul, SZA, and Isaiah Rashad.

“In Atlanta, we shocked the youth and our audience with thought-provoking panels and one of a kind networking opportunities,” Diddy shared. “With Top Dawg and Punch from TDE as our co-chairs in addition to Snoop Dogg, Angela Rye and Killer Mike, we are ready to bring this energy and empowerment to Los Angeles so they too can experience the REVOLT Summit firsthand.”

The REVOLT Summit in L.A. will also feature panelists who will discuss Criminal Justice Reform and the Cannabis Revolution, while also giving guests the opportunity to meet with business leaders for 10-minute, one-on-one mentorship sessions. A goal of the event is to help shape the next generation of industry leaders by sharing wisdom and insight into the hip hop industry, as they help them network to form relationships that can positively impact their present and future careers. 

The REVOLT Summit will take place on October 25-27, and tickets are available at

He’s just getting started: Tyler Perry to open Facility for Trafficked Girls



Tyler Perry

If you thought Tyler Perry was done making major plays this year, think again.

First, he was praised by Idris Elba and Kerry Washington as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Then Hollywood came to Atlanta to help him open Tyler Perry Studios. The 330-acre studio is the first black-owned studio lot and is one of the largest in the country. It features 12 sound stages, each of which is each named after an iconic black actor.

But even while all of these honors came his way, his thoughts were about those less fortunate.

In September, he used his private plane to fly supplies to hurricane-ravaged parts of the Bahamas, which he calls his adopted home.
And now he’s focusing on building a shelter for displaced women and youth.

“You know what, right now I’m dreaming about how do I build this shelter for trafficked girls, boys, and battered women,” he told Essence during his gala event to open his studio.

And during an interview with Gayle King for CBS, Perry said: “Having a compound that is a beautiful place right here somewhere on this 330 acres, where they’re trained in the business and they become self-sufficient, they live in nice apartments, there’s daycare, there are all of these wonderful things that allow them to re-enter society and then pay it forward again. That’s what I hope to do soon.”

Perry’s desire to help abused and displaced people come from his own experiences. As a child, he was physically abused by his father, whom he called a functioning alcoholic, and sexually abused by three men and a woman, all before the age of 10. Perry opened up about his childhood in a recent issue of People magazine.

“I would challenge anyone who is struggling or trying to figure out what to do to press on because whatever this pain was, there is an opposite. Here I am in it and I’m loving every day,” he told People.
