Diddy isn’t kidding around about his stated intent to buy the Carolina Panthers. The rap mogul appeared on the Breakfast Club morning show and talked about his plans to buy the NFL team (per TMZ.

Diddy said in the interview that he’s serious and is putting an investment group together to buy the team, which he originally stated his intent to do in December after Jerry Richardson announced his intent to sell the team amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

“It was never about me buying the Panthers, it was always about we,” he said. “It was always about we need a team. I jumped out there to make sure that they understood that they have to consider some black ownership right now with 80%, 70% of the league being African-American. It’s just time.”

Diddy said that he understands why people are doubting he will be able to do it, but doesn’t believe anyone can stop him.
