Rap superstar and business mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs believes it’s time black Americans stop handing over their votes to the Democrat party freely.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation” on Sunday he told host Al Sharpton that the black community ought to make both parties “come for our vote,” and “bring something with it.”

“My number one thing, though, to be honest, is black people,” he said before expressing some disappointment in the current president. “I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game.”

He said that the nature of politics is that when you help someone get elected you are supposed to receive something in return.

“I think we got a little bit shortchanged,” he said. “That’s not knocking the president. …He’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat, because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States.”

Combs is disenchanted with Hillary Clinton’s approach to getting the black vote, which polls indicate she has all but locked.

“Hillary Clinton, I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community,” he told Sharpton. “It really makes me feel, you know, almost hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting bloc.”

“I honestly think that heat has to be turned up so much that as a community we have to hold our vote,” he continued. “Don’t pacify yourself. Really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote. It’s a whole different strategy. I think we need to hold our vote. I don’t believe any of them.”

“That’s a big announcement,” Clinton shill Sharpton replied.

“You can get the vote. It don’t have to be held that long. But you’re going to have to come get it,” Combs said. “You have to bring something with it.”
