Puff’s Parties Kick Ass…
I’m pretty sure that Diddy japped the shit out of homeboy from L.A. that is currently suing him. Diddy does not suffer insults lightly. We all remember how he shot up the club after some fool ‘made it rain’ on him with hundred dollar bills. I’ll also bet you that Puff punched out that dude’s lights because of some slick shit that came sideways from dude’s lips, and not for a bitch that likes to party. Diddy’s got tons of those on staff.
I went to Cancun Mexico for Memorial Day about a dozen years ago when Bad Boy Records was running this rap shit and I have never partied or vacationed like that with a group of Hip-Hop fans ever since. Bad Boy Records hosted a holiday getaway that showed me they knew more about the good life than just over-priced jewelry and bottles of expensive liquor. Bad Boy was the O.G. jetski to a rented island and just chill your will status balers. We gambled, played beach volleyball, rode around on scooters and maxed out on the beach like it was our own.
The following year is when all the negroes and undesirables came to the party. B.I.G. has been killed earlier in the spring and Jay-Z was now holding the mantle as the “King of New York”. Make no mistake, Jay-Z and not NaS held that position, and Jay-Z held it longer than anyone had for the history of Hip-Hop. LL comes to mind next for the six or seven years he was Hip-Hop’s top draw and NYC’s top dog. Still nobody partied like P.Diddy. Who is more powerful? The kings, or the kingmakers? Diddy is a kingmaker. That is the big co-sign.
This is why Diddy is too valuable to throw under the bus. Just like your boy, Robert Sylvester Kelly. These dudes make too much paper for the tall Israelis and their respective corporations. They know how to make hits and they know what that good-good shit is when they smell it. Whatever shit this dude Diddy uncovers will be the next step for Hip-Hop, and conversely, American popular culture. I’m not saying that Diddy won’t have to pay some money for smacking the taste from the mouth of some privileged t.I. brat, but that is only cash that he would use to pour champagne on a tiger on fire.
Diddy makes too much money to be ignored.
