Peep excerpts from the interview below….
Via Variety:
Combs on hip-hop’s commercial dominance, especially through streaming: “You have these record companies that are making so much money off our culture, our art form, but they’re not investing or even believing in us,” .
On the industry lacking black executives in top-level positions: “For all the billions of dollars that these black executives have been able to make them, [there’s still hesitation] to put them in the top-level positions. They’ll go and they’ll recruit cats from overseas,” he continues. “It makes sense to give [executives of color] a chance and embrace the evolution, instead of it being that we can only make it to president, senior VP. … There’s no black CEO of a major record company. That’s just as bad as the fact that there are no [black] majority owners in the NFL. That’s what really motivates me.”

Diddy Arrested at UCLA??

According to TMZ, hip-hop music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has been arrested on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles, on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. His son Justin Combs is a red shirt junior defensive back.

Seems like this crazy situation started the other day during a team workout where Coach Alosi seemed to be picking on Diddy’s son, Justin and told him not to return until the end of summer. So as any other father of course Diddy was fairly confused. Puffy decided to pay the coach a visit to see what the problem was (uh oh). As soon as he arrived the staff in the athletic office asked Sean to leave, instead OG Puff ignored the requests and marched straight to the coach’s office. Diddy sources tell us Alosi was on the phone and Diddy was told to “hang on” but he wasn’t having it and picked up a kettlebell and swung it, narrowly missing Alosi. Police said if Diddy had connected, it could have killed Alosi. BUT lets not forget how shady Coach Alosi is. Remember he was suspended by the NFL in 2010 after tripping a Miami Dolphins player who was covering a punt.

Diddy was transferred to LA County Jail by campus security where he was charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery. He was realeased afer making a $50,000 bail. Meanwhile the world is waiting for Dylan Roof to be called a terrorist after wanting to start a race war after killing 9 innocent black people…well that’s a whole other story. What do you guys think about this drama?

Diddy And Drake Involved In Altercation In Miami Over Weekend

During one of the many Art Basel parties going on in Miami over the weekend, Diddy and Drake had a minor altercation. It was first reported that the fight was over Drake speaking to Cassie but DJ Sam Sneaker confirmed that was far from the truth in a tweet:

It definitely wasn’t bout Cassie. Drake at the Hospital Smh. He dislocated his Shoulder. It’ll come out soon. Yall pray for Drake. Nigga caught a 3 Pc …Diddy put hands on that boy … And he Ain’t go 0-100 … That boy left.

Turns out that the scuffle was over a beat. The now Grammy-nominated ‘0-100’ beat that was originally given to Diddy. Miss Info confirmed the following from a close source:

According to an insider, the beat that caused this whole dispute is actually “0-100” by Boi-1da. Apparently Diddy was given that beat first, eventually sent it to Drake to put a verse on it, but as we all know Drake released “0-100” as a freestyle using the beat instead. Mr. X reports that the beat was made during a series of sessions in Miami where Puff flew Boi-1da down…but turned down the beat. Which would make it up for grabs

Whew! Music industry drama gets serious! Somehow in the altercation, Drake re-injured his shoulder and had to be hospitalized. Hoping he recovers well and maybe he and Diddy can work this out. Anywho, Drake when he hurt his shoulder maybe?
