“I am a diamond cluster hustler. Queen b****, supreme b****. Kill a n**** for my n**** by any means b****. Murder scene b****. Clean b****, disease free b****, check it.” – Lil Kim (“Queen B”)
Things went from 0 to 100 real quick, real quick when Diddy got pissed. If you haven’t heard or you finally came off your giggle fit from the whole Chris Brown and Krispy Kreme (Karrueche) situation, Diddy slapped Drake. Yes, Mr. Puff Daddy put five fingers to Wheelchair Jimmy’s face. But for what? A song (not Cassie). But why? So the story goes, Boi-1da gave the song to both Diddy and Drake. Which most producers do when they have a song. Drake snatched it up first and it later became “0-100.” Diddy then wants to meet with Drake about the song. Drake on the other hand, begins to dodge Diddy. Never dodge Diddy. So fast forward to early Monday morning (12/8). Diddy meets with Drake outside of club LIV where Drake refuses to step out of the car at first. He finally does. He and Diddy continue to argue. Now Drake being Drake and believing he is as tough as he portrays on records, gets slick. Never get slick with Diddy. Diddy tells him that he will not disrespect him and proceeds to show Drake who is the real HBIC.
That’s the story. Now let me tell you folks about Sean Combs. He is the male Naomi Campbell. That means he has no problem going upside your head if need be. This isn’t the first nor will be the last time that Puff will show why he’s not to be tried. Don’t believe me? Okay, check this …
- Steve Stoute had promised Diddy the clip where he impersonates Jesus on the cross would not appear in the “Hate Me Now” music video. But the image appeared anyway. So Diddy visited Stoute at his office and hit him over the head with a champagne bottle.
- Two producers sued Diddy for $25 million each in 2002 for being assaulted by Diddy’s security for no apparent reason.
- In December of 1999, Diddy and his protégé Shyne were arrested on weapons as well as other charges after a shooting in a club done by Shyne.
And there are countless other stories about Diddy pulling guns out on artists. So with all of this readily available information why would Aubrey decide to test the waters? This situation had little to do with a song and was more about respect. Unlike Rock ‘N’ Roll, Country, and Pop, Hip-Hop has very little respect for the older generation. But just like that aunt who will warm that butt up if you disrespect her, so will the older generation. Ask Nelly about KRS-One. Ask Soulja Boy about Ice-T. Hell ask Drake about Common and Jay Z. Rappers that came up in the 90’s were built differently than today’s rappers. 90’s rappers lived and breathed what they said in songs. They didn’t argue, they fought. So Drake feeling his britches and it’s cool. But he has to remember that these OGs been there and done that. So the stunts he’s pulling isn’t impressing anyone but the strippers. Every song he is whining about respect. But to get respect is to give respect. And no one respects someone who can’t even get out of the car and talk face to face about a disagreement. I mean Drake, you ain’t no diva. Things didn’t have to escalate. So to Aubrey and the ones alike, remember if someone wants to discuss something with you, either decline or set up a meeting. Otherwise it will be hard to explain why someone played patty cake with your face. Now take that. -Pooh Bailey
