Sean “Diddy” Combs throws the best New Year’s Eve party ever with DJ Khaled, Joe Budden, Future and Travis Scott

The REVOLT Chairman rings in 2018 with love, family and friends.

  /  01.02.2018

It’s 3:37 PM New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31) and Sean “Diddy” Combs is literally embodying his most recent nickname, “Love.”

“L is for the way you look at me,” Nat King Cole’s voice divinely waltzes out of the massive sound system in the REVOLT TV Chairman’s Titanic-sized backyard that—among its many awe-inspiring amenities are a tiki shower, pool, Jacuzzi and a dance floor big enough for any club (more on that later).

“O is for the only one I see,” the song continues as Diddy does his Black Gene Kelly, mimicking moves that look like they would have made the cut in one of Singing in the Rain‘s dance routines. Puff, wearing a white bathrobe, starts to smile. His face lights up like the lights embedded in the dance floor.

“V is very, very extraordinary / E is even more than anyone that you adore can / Love is all that I can give to you.” // REVOLT TV

Later in the night, Diddy will definitely be delivering love to the hundreds coming to his mansion on Miami’s Star Island. But the New Year’s revelers will also be treated to, among other things, an endless supply of Cîroc, Deleon, various food and music: soul touching music, driving your ass down memory lane music, sweat out your good tux and ballgown music.

Diddy literally put on a party last night for New Year’s Eve on the scale of a major award show. His annual extravaganza had people not just saying it was his best ever to mark the transition from one year to the next, but it was THEE best ever party they’ve ever been too. // REVOLT TV

You just don’t get fiestas like they had last night and this morning. At 7:42PM, Diddy was still in robe and doo-rag doing his rounds about the estate. He was still smiling as all the last minute scrambling by his dream team went on furiously to secure the night’s success. Inside the house, various members of his family, such as C.J. Wallace and Puff’s own son King Combs, went back and forth with chef-catered plates of food filled with soul food and crab soufflé.

By 11PM, the stars started rolling into the Cîroc-sponsored Black Tie that emphasized Black Excellence. Joe Budden was one of the first to arrive and definitely the first to hit the dance floor as D-Nice got the festivities started at the DJ booth. Travis Scott walked in dolo, barely noticeable as he skipped the red carpet and went straight to the back. Gabby Sidibe and Jussie Smollett crack jokes as they walked in, while DJ Khaled, Diddy’s co-host came in with DJ Nasty, Gucci Pucci and E-Class. La La Anthony and here crew arrived around the same time. Faith Evans came with Kima from Total and Lil Cease and the Junior Mafia, N.O.R.E. brought his wife and a handful of friends and family. // REVOLT TV

N.O.R.E. later in the night welcomed Joe Budden to the REVOLT family. There have been unsubstantiated rumors the past several days that Budden signed a five million dollar contract with REVOLT. Although that was false, Budden and Diddy shared a moment inside the house, sitting on the staircase, where they both said they were ready to “get money together.” Budden also said he “loved” Migos, who recently dissed him in their new record “Ice Tray.”

On the roof of the house, with 10 minutes left in 2017, Diddy beckoned his family and DJ Khaled to join him in bringing in 2017.

“Be clear on what’s about to happens,” he told the partygoers. “Be clear on what’s happening here. Be clear this is the start of the Black Renaissance. It’s our time. We gonna be standing on roofs all around this muthafuckin Island. Shout out to my Queens because without the women, none of us would be here.”

“Wooo! Wooooo!” Khaled yelled at the stroke of midnight and then a several-minute-long fireworks display that would rival the end of a WrestleMania pay-per-view took place. // REVOLT TV

By 2 AM, you couldn’t even tell two hours transpired since 2018 started. Busta Rhymes was toasting, Reverend Al Sharpton was posing for pictures and DJs E-Feezy and D-Nice kept the dance floor packed. You could see Lil Cease singing Keith Sweat, Alonzo Mourning boogieing with his wife, Irv Gotti and David Banner talking TV by the bar, Fabolous and Joey Badass discussing music in the VIP section.

As the night kept progressing, Future and Jim Jones showed up separately, both on yachts. The man known as Salt Bae cooked cheeseburger sliders and Jeezy popped up to join Diddy back on the roof. Puff got back on the mic to tell everyone breakfast was about to be ready. At 5:13 AM, Trey Songz was on the dance floor singing as D-Nice spun 112 records and Diddy told everyone it was only “halftime.” // REVOLT TV

Diddy would prove that his stamina level is still as supreme as Ric Flair’s to his team. The last tune didn’t play until close to 11 AM (albeit at a considerable lower decibel at that point) as Puff said his final goodbyes to guests and staff who worked the party. For anyone who didn’t get invited, the entire shindig was livestreamed on REVOLT.TV. // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV // REVOLT TV
