(AllHipHop News) Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter are consistently near the top of the Forbes Hip Hop Cash Kings list and The Source Power 30 rankings. Both Puff and Jay run several successful companies, but the “Young G’s” collaborators have yet to join forces for a major business deal.
Puffy recently stopped by the Sway In The Morning radio show, and host Sway Calloway asked the Bad Boy Entertainment boss about possibly teaming with Hov.
“Me and Jay – we’ve talked about it. We said we want to pick the best one,” revealed Puff. “It’s going to have to be that one thing that gets it all the way popping. For other people, it was DreamWorks. When DreamWorks happened, it made it okay for strong, visionary, idealistic leaders to get together and figure out how to navigate.”
He added, “Sometimes you don’t do it, not because you don’t want to do it – it’s almost out of respect for someone else, you may just want to stay in your lane. But I think that’s the only way we’ll be able to get true economic power. If we do more things together. That’s the next level for Hip Hop.”
Puff Daddy stated he is open to building with any of his peers including Jay Z. According to the Harlem native, there have been discussions among Hip Hop artists about working together in the business realm.
