Sean 'Diddy' Combs has one thing to be happy about and that's the documentary film "Undefeated" winning an Academy Award on Sunday. The hip hop music mogul, who signed on as an executive producer for the film and remake, as reported on MemphisRap.com, can now add an Academy Award to his many accolades.
The film, which takes place in North Memphis known for its high crime rate and allegedly being one of the poorest districts in Memphis, TN, is about the Manassas high school football team and volunteer coach, Bill Courtney and their success at defeating the difficulties surrounding them. Throughout the years, North Memphis has been thrown into the spotlight due to many Memphis based rappers such as Project Pat, Juicy J, and Yo Gotti being from that area.
As for Diddy and the Oscar win, he took to his Twitter to express his happiness and excitement by telling his followers, "God is the greatest!! Thank you! Undefeated!!"
Diddy has film producer and video chairman Harvey Weinstein of The Weinstein Company to thank after asking him to join as an executive producer for the documentary film "Undefeated."
Diddy's happiness took him on to the Vanity Fair and Weinstein Company Oscar after-parties, where he partied to the wee-hours.
In other news, Sean 'Diddy' Combs has teamed up with Comcast to launch his own network called REVOLT which will be distributed by Comcast. The programming on REVOLT, which will feature music videos, interviews, live performances and more, is slated to launch in 2013.
