Yué Wu was invited by Apple Music and Doubleday & Cartwright to create a short animation film to be distributed on Apple Music as a companion to Diddy’s “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop - A Bad Boy Story” documentary feature.
The team at Doubleday & Cartwright provided Yué with an exclusive audio interview of Diddy telling a story about a teenaged Sean Combs trying to get into the music biz, introducing himself to Heavy D in a pizza shop and eventually getting his internship at Uptown Records, thus making his first official step in the music business which eventually led him to become the superstar / pop culture icon / billion-dollar mogul we all know now.
Yué created a 90 seconds animation video bringing this little-known story to life with his unique flavor, incorporating his trademark portraits, witty animations and his signature penmanship into an original, colorful and contagiously funny piece.

Mt. Vernon reflected George Washington’s status in society and his accomplishments in establishing and leading a new nation built on the ideals of “liberty and justice for all.” However, by the late 18th century, Mount Vernon was home to an enslaved community of over 300 men, women, and children. House servants, field hands, and craftsmen built, maintained, and supplied many of the services needed to house, clothe, and feed the equivalent of a small town.
Although born into a class and society in which slavery was rarely questioned, Washington came to believe that the institution of slavery should be abolished by legislative measure. In his will, he freed his slaves. In doing so, he was the only one of nine American presidents who owned slaves to emancipate them.
This program examines the lives of the enslaved community at Mount Vernon as well as George Washington’s changing attitudes toward slavery.
On the heels of the 2nd Presidential Debate of 2016 and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture opening we announced the opening of Lives Bound Together, an exhibit at George Washington's Mount Vernon.
Inside you'll go back over 200 years to meet the slaves that persevered to maintain the Washington estate. We were so proud to produce this video alongside the Mount Vernon team.
