Miami-- Russell Simmons received a standing ovation at the start of Day Two of the Inaugural Revolt Music Conference before leading a sold out crowd in a group meditation during an inspirational keynote address. Simmons encouraged the young group of budding entrepreneurs to stay hungry and appreciate the power of managing one’s mind. Day Two panels featured some of the biggest titans of their perspective industries including Frank Cooper (CMO of Pepsico) and Marc Ecko (Founder & Chief Brand Officer of Complex Media) discussing “The New Deal: Brands and Artists” and legendary music producers Dallas Austin and Rodney Jerkins debating “The Business of Music Publishing” with singer-songwriter James Fauntleroy and Jessica Rivera (SVP, Head of East Coast Operations of Universal Music Publishing).

REVOLT founder Sean “Diddy” Combs led a rousing keynote address entitled “#AskDiddy” in front of a packed house, offering invaluable career insight and advice to the standing-room-only crowd. Following a classic performance by        Ne-Yo, Diddy presented his good friend and iconic industry executive Jimmy Iovine with an award and spoke at length about his illustrious forty year career. Iovine then gave a rousing speech about the current state of music and industry’s ever-changing landscape.
