Washington: Hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has given US President Barack Obama a tough assessment.

"I just want the president to do better," a daily quoted him as saying in an interview with The Source magazine.

Diddy said specifically that he hoped Obama would do more for the underprivileged in America and emphasized that "[many] of those people are African-American."

The star, who admitted that he cried with joy when Obama was elected, also criticized political game playing.

"I’d rather have a black president that was man enough to say that he was doing something for black people have one term than a president who played the politics game have two terms," said Diddy.
