Diddy is attempting to clear his name of long-running allegations that he’s stolen from his artists over the years.
In a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, he spoke candidly about his business relations with his artists and denies claims that he owes any of them money.
“There has been negative propaganda put out about me that’s not true,” he said. “And has really stained — tried to stain — my legacy.”
In part of a lengthy answer to the question on many people’s mind, Diddy said, “If you think that I’m a scumbag that would ever steal anything — my name is Diddy.” He added, “I never took nothing from nobody a day in my life. All I’ve ever given is opportunity…”
“So, you’re saying you don’t steal from artists?” Charlamagne Tha God reiterates. “Never, never,” Diddy responded.
Referring to Ma$e, one the most notable artists who’s called the producer out, Diddy said, “First of all, I didn’t do nothing to him.”
“I did one album with Ma$e, how much money do you think I owe this guy?” continued the New York entertainer, who seemed annoyed at discussing the issues between he and the former Bad Boy rapper. He then took jabs at Ma$e, calling him a “fake pastor.”
“And [he] went and conned people,” Diddy continued. “And y’all gone let him throw dirt on the God’s name?”
After asserting that he’ll organize some sort of meeting with any artist who’s willing, Diddy said that Ma$e owes him $3 million.
“That’s facts, I got the receipts,” he said.
He added he’s done being quiet about the issue: “I’m back outside and I’m fighting back for us. And I’m also doing some fighting back for me,” he expressed.
