A tribute to Andre Harrell, the influential music executive who discovered Sean “Diddy” Combs and died earlier this month at age 59, will air Sunday.
Harrell, who was also one half of the 80s hip-hop duo Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, gave Combs his first shot in music before he went on to become the entertainment mogul he is today.
Harrell, a Bronx, New York native worked with Russell Simmons at Def Jam Records.
Harrell decided to part ways with Def Jam to launch a record label of his own, Uptown Records.
Mr. Chamoagne and Bubbles will air commercial-free this Sunday on BET, BET Jams, BET Soul and REVOLT TV, where Harrell was vice-chairman.
