10 Other Rappers Apologizing For Their Actions


Diddy Goes After Steve Stoute For Nas’s “Hate Me Now”

Date: May 1999
Incident: Diddy requests that his crucification scene in Nas’s “Hate Me Now” video be edited out of the version for MTV. Steve Stoute, Nas’s manager, refuses to oblige. Diddy then brings his goons to Stoute’s office, and Stoute is left with a broken arm and jaw.

Before Puff was the media mogul he was today, he was a kid from Harlem. So when Steve Stoute refused to follow his orders, mayhem ensued. After the matter was settled out of court, Diddy made a public apology in USA Today for his wrongdoings. What can we learn from this? You can take the man out of Harlem, but you can’t take Harlem out of the man.—Abrea Armstrong

Apology: “I made a major mistake, and I have to handle the consequences for it. I have to admit I was totally wrong. I have to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
