Diddy has taken a moment to respond to claims that he has stolen from artists who were once on his Bad Boy Records label and called out rapper Ma$e in the process.
During an appearance on The Breakfast Club on Wednesday (Oct. 5), the music industry veteran shut down the rumors that he exploits his artists but did allege that Ma$e owes him $3 million.
“Just in general, the Ma$e thing. I did one album with Ma$e. One album. How much money do you think I owe this guy,” Diddy said, referencing Ma$e’s 1997 debut album Harlem World. “And then he became a fake pastor and went and conned people. And y’all gonna let him throw dirt on the god’s name? Anybody can come and step up. Bring your receipts. But I’m not playing. I’m back outside, and I’m fighting back for us. And I’m also doing some fighting back for me.”
The “Gotta Move On” artist went on to say that he gave Ma$e a $3 million album advance that he never delivered on.
“That’s facts; I got the receipts,” he said. “I’m not gonna go back and forth with Ma$e. I’m not going back and forth with nobody. I’m just gonna speak up for myself now.”
He concluded, “Anybody that thinks I owe them something show me the receipt, and you’ll get paid within 24 hours.
Ma$e has since responded to Diddy's claims.
"How dare this n***a talk about receipts. Let's start with your mother ni**a, your mother got the receipts ni**a, everything is in your mother name," he stated on Instagram.
"You need more proof n***a? Biggie ain't here so Big can't give you no receipts, he dead. Craig Mack can't give you no receipts, he dead…Black Rob can't give you receipts, he dead. And everybody else, you made sign paperwork so they can't talk about what I'm talking about," he continued.
“I’m the only one with the guts to not sign it, ‘cuz I ain’t need the money. All money ain’t good money, remember that.”
