AT&T U-verse picks up music channel just days after 50 Cent accused the cable provider of being racist

Sean "Diddy" Combs' Revolt TV is officially heading to AT&T U-verse, the same cable provider Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson accused of being "racist" just days ago.


"This is a historical day for Revolt," Combs' said in a statement. "With a major player like AT&T, more people will be able to access the hottest music and original content on every screen and device. This agreement shows the world that Revolt is a force in the media industry."


With the announcement comes news of Revolt being available as early as July 27 and will include rights to On Demand video and content on the go.


Over the weekend, Jackson made headlines after airing out his feelings about AT&T potentially blacking out Starz, which is home to the hit drama "Power." The rapper serves as executive producer of the show.


"Man Im sorry I have to say this, but AT&T is racist they have had issues in the past and here we go again," Jackson said. "500,000 homes will not be able to view the next episode of POWER. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO."


Jackson went on to post several other messages, urging customers to "switch to anything but AT&T." Starz followed up with a statement of their own which confirmed they were in negotiations with the cable provider.


In a response, AT&T stated: "Starz and their paid talent can spin up whatever they like, but the bottom line is we’re NOT going to negotiate a deal that is bad for customers. In these negotiations, our customers are all that matter to us."
