Hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs is shooting down rumors that he’s a bad boss. The Bad Boy CEO tells “Vibe” magazine that he’s always worked hard to make sure his artists succeed. He explains, quote, “There’s an off perception that needs to be addressed about me that I have ever robbed somebody or mistreated somebody. Or tried to be ruthless or whatever in this game. Like, all this year I’ve heard people say, ‘Where’s Carl Thomas, where’s Black Rob, where’s G.Dep? Where are these artists?’ And for some reason they go ahead and equate that, cause those artists aren’t with me, that I’ve done something wrong or malicious or conniving.”
Diddy goes on to point out that hip-hop is a difficult industry, and most artists don’t get to enjoy several years in the game. The “Hello Good Morning” rapper adds that artists like Jay-Z, LL Cool J, and Nas are rare, noting, quote, “That’s not even one percent of the rappers.” To read Diddy’s entire interview check out this month’s issue of “Vibe” magazine. Fans can also pick up the rap star’s new album, “Last Train To Paris,” on September 20th.
