TDE’s Top Dawg & Punch Henderson Will Co-Chair The Revolt Summit In Los Angeles
The 2019 Revolt Summit descends on Los Angeles October 25 through 27.
Sponsored by AT&T, this year’s conference is co-chaired by Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith and President Terrence “Punch” Henderson and will feature scores of panelists including Snoop Dogg, Van Jones, DJ Mustard, Rich Paul, Killer Mike, among others.
This is the second Revolt Summit of 2019. The first took place in Atlanta in September and made headlines through an explosive panel entitled “Trap The Vote x Revolt: Hip Hop & Politics” with Killer Mike, T.I., Candace Owens, Steven Pargett, Tamika Mallory and Katrina Pierson.
During a discussion about President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again and its interpretation by Black Americans,” T.I. asked Owens (who is an ardent supporter of the administration) when in history was America great?
“The period when women couldn’t vote?,” T.I. questioned. “The period when we were hanging from trees? Or the crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make America like again? Which period was America great that we’re trying to replicate? Which era was it, tell me?”

Owens began her response by stating that “…slavery was all over the world” before being interrupted by the audience.
“I can’t answer the question if you’re just going to boo when I say slavery was all over the world, which is a fact. Why are you booing a fact?,” she replied.
“Because you’re making light of an enslavement of people that look like us,” T.I. explained. “You can’t make light of that.”
When Owens reacted with “I haven’t even finished the sentence. How am I making light of anything?” T.I. replied with “Because you started off with some bullshit.”
“Trap The Vote Part Two” will be one of the many panels included in Revolt Summit Los Angeles, along with conversations on Cannabis Revolution, Criminal Justice Reform, and opportunities for attendees to meet for 10 minutes one-on-one with successful business and entertainment entrepreneurs. New artists will also have the opportunity to perform in front of music industry leaders during the competition event, BeHeard.
“In Atlanta we shocked the youth and our audience with thought provoking panels and one of a kind networking opportunities,” said REVOLT Chairman Sean “Diddy” Combs, via press release. “With Top Dawg and Punch from TDE as our Co-Chairs in addition to Snoop Dogg, Angela Rye and Killer Mike, we are ready to bring this energy and empowerment to Los Angeles so they too can experience the REVOLT Summit firsthand.”
