According to a video of the rapper that The Shade Room shared on Instagram, Diddy could be seen giving his opinion on the watch and why it is not as hot.
The Coming Home hitmaker started by noting that he is not a hater but had to address how people have the wrong perception of Richard Mille.

Diddy noted the watch is not as 'hot', adding he has three of them, but he has never worn them.
"It's not hot, I have like two or three, I never pull them out, they are ugly. I don't even know Richard Mille," he said.
He urged black men to save their money and buy houses or get property instead of the watch.
From The ShadeRoom's post, many seemed to agree with him while others questioned why he is dissing the watch while owning three.
Here are some of the reactions:
"I agree… thank you!"
"When a business mogul/influencer tells you the truth."
"That’s not in my tax bracket so ima hush."
"If you missed the last part it was “save your money and go buy a house.”
"He aint lie and he got money for one lmao."
"Finally, somebody just doesn’t think sh** sweet cause they got money."
African stars such as Diamond Platnumz and Trevor Noah are some of the celebs from the continent known to own such watches.
Diddy pays rent for families
In December 2020, the mogul decided to change the lives of some Florida residents who may have otherwise been at risk of losing their homes.
