TMZ exclusively reported that Sean “Diddy” Combs invested over $10 million in Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter. Musk paid $44 million for the social media app last month. Aside from Combs, other investors reportedly include Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and Saudi Arabian billionaire businessman Al Waleed bin Talal Al Saud. Meanwhile, Combs, in a deal valued at $185 million, is set to acquire cannabis retail and growing operations in Eastman Business Park in Rochester, New York. According to CNBC, the deal also includes operations in Massachusetts and Illinois. This transaction will be Combs’ first cannabis investment. In addition, the deal creates the United States’ first minority-owned cannabis company that is in multiple states, and becomes the largest Black-owned cannabis company in the world, according to a press release from the companies and Combs.

 Tongues are wagging that Sean “Diddy” Combs is not the only billionaire rap mogul making big moves in business. According to TMZ, Jay-Z has teamed up with Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos to possibly purchase the Washington Commanders. Sources say the NFL team’s current owner, Daniel Snyder, is interested in selling the franchise. On Nov. 2, the Washington Commanders issued a statement announcing Snyder retained a major bank to put the team up for sale, but no final decision has been made.
