      A few years ago, Diddy hit Broadway as part of the “A Raisin in the Sun” cast alongside Phylicia Rashad, Sanaa Lathan and Audra McDonald. The Broadway show received critical acclaim and apparently, Diddy didn’t do half bad.

      So earlier this year a television version of the Broadway play was produced with everyone resuming their roles including Diddy. Of course, they couldn’t count Diddy all the way out since he also helped produce the telepic through Bad Boy Worldwide with Sony Pictures TV and Storyline Entertainment. The telepic will premiere on February 25 on ABC after the telecast of the 80th Academy Awards.

     For those unaware, “A Raisin in the Sun,” is play by Lorraine Hansberry that tells the story of a family living and struggling on Chicago‘s South Side in the 1950s.
