Sean Combs aka Diddy has revealed that he’s working on an app with Jay-Z to help black businesses. Diddy, who recently revealed that he’s now going by the name of Love (lol), spoke to GQ, detailing the plans to develop an app that helps users find black-owned and black-friendly companies near them.

 He said: “This is not about taking away from any other community,” Combs said, who described the app as a way of championing “black excellence”.

“We’ll still go to Chinatown. We’ll still buy Gucci! But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It’s about blacks gaining economic power.”

“I don’t believe in passiveness,” Diddy added. “At some point there has to be some kind of fight. I feel like we’ve done a lot of marching. It’s time to start charging.”

“We’re into psychological warfare. The difference is, we’re not trying to hurt nobody.”

The app doesn’t currently have a name.
