When MGK was arrested in Florida for disorderly conduct this past weekend, it wasn't just the police he had to worry about. The newly minted Bad Boy rapper had to answer to an even higher power — Diddy. Speaking to MTV News, the 21-year-old Cleveland native said Puff was thankfully cool about the touchy situation.
"I talked to Puff today, and he's like, 'It's all good. Do what you do. You did what you had to do,'” Kelly said. The Bad Boy Records founder had previously taken to Twitter with a series of tongue-in-cheek tweets that suggested he was freaking out about the arrest.
“@machinegunkelly WtF!!!!!! Call me at miami crib now!!!!! Everyone hit him and tell him to call me NOW!!!!! Pls thanks!!!!," one read.
"You can tell he's, like, playful with it, but there's a serious tone behind [it]," MGK said.
It turns out Diddy was mostly concerned because of a previous arrest that weekend involving a member of Kelly's entourage. One of the young rapper's friends was caught in a drunk driving accident, but Kelly was not involved.
"He thought I was in the car too, so he thought I got arrested twice. It was like the first arrest was cool, like, all right, he'll let it slide. But when he [thought it was two arrests], he was like, 'What the f***? You got arrested two times? Something is wrong with you, man,' " MGK explained, imitating his mentor. "He was, like, spazzing out. I think all the label is on edge about how we rock."
In a tweet to his fans, Kelly seemed like he was ready to learn from the run-in and move on.
"Thank you Florida for ragin this week. Lookin forward to seeing every state during this spring/summer tour (no more handcuffs tho!)," he wrote.
