Drake & Diddy are two of my biggest influences in 2017. Both Drake & Diddy are #1 and #2 on Forbes Highest Paid Hip Hop Artists of the 2017 List. Diddy and Drake have not only represented themselves in a positive light this year but sharing the spotlight with the people around them. Diddy gave the spotlight to his sons this year by passing the torch down and giving them the opportunity to run the business and shake up the music industry. Drake gave the spotlight to all the artists on his label and each of them are dropping or dropped a project this year. Overall, Diddy & Drake have showed me the blueprint on what I need to do be successful but mostly importantly showed me a way to turn negativity and PERCEIVED failure into greatness.
