Former Da Band members Freddy P and Babs Bunny, and Day26 Willie Taylor, all spoke out about their underwhelming experiences working with the Bad Boy executive.

Most recently, Freddy P, posted a candid Instagram Video, and accused the 52-year-old for being the reason he “hates” life, Complex reports.

“Like this n***a Puffy is the main muthaf**kin’ reason why I hate fuc*ing life, dawg,” Freddy expressed in an Instagram video. “People don’t even understand. Like, I don’t even give a f**k. I’ve never been to a point where I thought of suicide my whole life, never. I mean, I’m a gangsta.”

“I don’t even know how I started thinking like that. I done had it all and I fell to the bottom. How do you come back from that when you battling a giant? It ain’t got nothing to do with your skill no more ’cause your skill is 90 percent better than any n***a that’s out there right now and the world knows it. But it ain’t your skills … the world is built on relationships.”

Diddy headed to his Instagram story to set the record straight, kinda

“STOP ALL YOUR CRYING, BIT**ING & MOANING. HUSTLE HARDER OR GET THE F**K OUT OF OUR WAY,” the media mogul wrote, signing the message with his new tag, “Love.”

Babs previously spoke out about the “shi*ty contracts” and Taylor made comments about how artists involved in Making the Band were not set up to win in the music industry.
