Diddy Signs with Chris Lighty’s Violator Management

diddy1.jpgSean “Diddy” Combs has enlisted the services of Chris Lighty’s Violator Management to oversee his music career and line up new marketing ventures, according to the New York Daily News. Lighty, who also manages the careers of 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliot, has already begun working on a new marketing strategy for Diddy’s latest LP, Press Play. The Violator head is credited with the rampant success of 50 Cent outside the arena of music, landing him deals with Glaceau Vitamin Water, Reebok, and Ecko Unltd. for his G-Unit clothing line. Earlier this year, 50 Cent attacked Diddy on a mixtape track shortly before the release of Press Play over Combs’ unwillingness to release Harlem rapper Ma$e from his Bad Boy recording contract. The two have since resolved the dispute.

    Y’all fuck boys can hate on diddy all y’all want, the Nigga is Eric B “Paid in Full”,..Yes he has a foul was of doing business, and I don’t agree with his ways, but the fact is this nigga went to War w/ Death Row, went up side Steve “the Commissioner” Stout head, busted a few rounds in a Club (and got away w/ it). Like the Lox said Diddy a paper gansta, beefin w/ him is like career suicide, every exect in the business deals w/ him, he will pull the chair up under you easy,….ask Suge Night, or ask 50, why do you think Jimmy Iv and Chris lightly asked 50 to fix that mess quick? Now here’s the answer Diddy singed to Violator management…lol
    I respect Diddy, he’s more Gangsta in Todays hip-hop then y’all favorite rappers. I mean he tell it how it is, he don’t front about running the streets, packing gats or selling drugs. I’m a real bad boy fan, they ran shit gave me ready to die, life after death,…even Harlem World (hate all you want that shit was a classic).
    So in Puff own words: “Can’t stop, won’t stop,…take that, take that, take that it’s bad boy bicth”

    So good 4 Diddy and us don’t U think? Cause maybe now Diddy will get shot the fuck up standing outside of the Violator offices or some shit so we don’t have 2 deal wit’ this backstabbin’ theif anymore. One can only hope.
    Yea’ and that was funny as hell but yet dead on wit’ “the Black Kevin Federline.” They should tour 2gether.

    koochitaster on point with his homework, but he will never make da band!!!

  • http://G-unit.com BAnks 82992

    The only reason he did this is because 50 Cent did it and sold out all of his shows on his tour.

  • http://localcd.com Dow

    He did the deal because is a true business man .

    Koofiesmacker do you smoke or snort your caine? “Puffy” didn’t go to war with Death Row; Death Row self destructed and then Puffy blew up after Suge went to prison. We all know Puffy and the late great Big were as quiet as church mice when Death Row was flexin’. Strictly publicity stunt between he and Steve Stout (that’s well documented). He does have big cake but if he’d never signed Biggie he wouldn’t be in the position he’s in now. Who has blown up on his label since 1997? Look at how hard he and his acts suck now.

  • H-MAN

    OK, thatz what I waz lookin 4…Kool, beef iz settled…Violator Baby…Letz do it Diddy…Push Play…Make sum history

  • koofiesmacker

    JonJon i feel ur point, but we all know Diddy & Big took many shots @ death row, Not on record but in the biz, Radio shows, even concerts,…even the mad rapper skits, if u NY u would know. He has his own way to deal w/ his opponents,…noboddy blew from Label b/c The Jigg was up, Nobody was trying to get down w/ the shinny suit movement no more,…but last i checked No way out went platnum, so as Mase, Total, 112, even Black rob 1st album,….so now who’s really snifing ok Coke? hate all u want, Puff got gwap,…hate him or love him,.

  • Hole Side Kings

    Get dat paper Diddy
    HSK BITCH!!!!!!!

  • dq

    i thought diddy n 50 resolved the beef

  • jonjon–23

    Koofiesmacker, you know that anytime someone blows up and does insane numbers in a clique (say 4x platinum) that if anyone in their clique comes out they will at least do gold. Look at Nelly and Murphy Lee.

  • joe joe g

    JOEY G UP IN THE HIZZY, i’m at least double platinum on myspace. holla at the kid bitch

  • let the game begin

    Diddy pop is a waste of time maybe a good busness man but he aint shit he’s a back stebber ask shine po.why tha fuck does he wanna hang on to mase’s balls anyway

  • HOT AS THAT THANG OUT HURR N THESE $TREET$

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    COSIGN AGAIN. WHAT THE FUCK? BUT TO NARROW IT DOWN, THERES NO DOUBT DIDDY IS AN UNDERGROUND MOB BOSS. I MEAN, HE’S THE ONLY NIGGA 50 HAD BEEF WITH BUT THEN 50 “SETTLED DISPUTES” WITH A WEEK LATER. NOTICE I SAID SETTLED DISPUTES. NOT ONCE HAS ANYTHING BEEN MENTIONED ABOUT MASE EVEN BEING PASSED UP TO G-UNIT. THATS SOME SHADY SHIT RIGHT THERE. PLUS THAT PAC DUKE GETTIN KILLED. YEAH THAT WAS ALL ARRANGED BY PUFFY. THAT NIGGAS PAID SON, YOU SEE HOW HE KEEPS HIS ARTIST IN CHECK, BY NOT GIVING THEM SHIT. THATS WHY THEY ALL LEAVE AFTER THEIR FIRST ALBUMS. BUT THAT NIGGA NEED TO BRING G.DEP BACK. THAT NIGGA IS SICK AND ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED RAPPERS OF ALL TIME. CHILD OF THE GHETTO MUHFUCKERS!

    AKA SUPERMAN BUT SOME DUMBFUCK USING MY SCREENNAME SO I HAD TO SWITCH IT UP.

  • http://www.myspace.com/vega_diamond Vega Diamond

    Personlly I think that holding on to ma$e’s contract is kind of wrong but business is business. I mean I heard that kamakazee flow he did, and that shit was crazy… no imagine if he rhymed like that all of the time??? Man I think that puff needs to scoop him up, slap fif with a lil cash and call it a day because niether Puff or 50, are going to get anything by keeping mase benched!!!! but please keep him off of that comercial crap!!!! and 50 has to promise not to sing on any of his hooks and make sure mase doesnt sing either!!!!!! Let that nigga loose and then whatch him make that doe and buy his way out of whoever’s contract!!!! oh by the way et a Fatal Hooks Pro track on his CD…THAT’s INSTANT GRAMMY!!!!!!

    JonJon you’re an idiot…If yo momma hadn’t laid with yo pops you wouldn’t be in your position…As a matter of fact you wouldn’t be…what you said makes no sense…What have you done since you were born? LOL

  • Knowledge Speaks

    Diddy should focus on the mass amount of artists he has under his wing instead of himself. Waddup with Ness?

  • let the game begin

    bring G-dep back

  • jonjon–23

    Loosenut, I would answer you but I don’t speak moron. What I said is true. That nigga is still putting out Biggies albums with songs he didn’t even complete. Without Biggie, Puffy and his label would have long since been an afterthought. He has 50 million artists signed to his label and all of them are good for about 1 hit every six months.

  • shedatruth

    diddy sucks dick, fuck him, yeah he piad but not cuz his own talent! picture that. Anyway i heard he a fag, and whats with this ‘preserve my sexy’ i aint know he had none. He a diva, a homo, a nobody basically.
