It’s something that once you see it, you’re like, ‘If I get a chance to be involved in nurturing this artist, this is more than a business or making money in the music industry, I could be a part of giving a gift to the world of something like Billie Holiday.’ That’s a gift. Mary J. Blige, I been blessed to be a part of, that’s a gift. Biggie, that’s a gift. This, to me, is one of my gifts.” —musical wise man Diddy, bestowing his latest gift, Janelle Monáe [MTV]
