Diddy is still defending the legacy of Bad Boy Records. Speaking to DJ Whoo Kid, the mogul said that the bad reputation has label has gotten is just the result of jealousy and envy among those that don’t want to see him thrive. Over the last couple of years, theres been a strong propaganda movement that??s been brewing in the negative sense against Bad Boy, against what it is to sign to the Bad Boy label, if it??s a detriment to your career,he said. ??Just hate. Just regular hate and also a lot of people not understanding how this industry works. ??This industry has a life expectancy of two years. It started a couple of years ago like, What happened with this artist? Why isn??t this artist still on the label? So people started to try to give us a bad rap and spread that propaganda through the new generation. When honestly, nobody on Def Jams still on Def Jam. No one who was on Roc-A-Fella is still on Roc-A-Fella. There??s not even still a Roc-A-Fella. It was named something else. We the last people standing, we the last crew standing. And Iâ??m not saying that with any disrespect towards anybodys name who I just said. We not letting that propaganda ride.
He also explained his previously having compared Rick Ross to the late Notorious B.I.G.
??I said on the ?Angels?? verse, I think he channeled Biggie at night. A lot of emcees, they channel Biggie in some of their verses. You hear the influence. When you channel the influence, that doesn??t mean they??re comparing someone to them. I think I also said that he was the Biggie of the South, because I was there. I knew the effect that Biggie was having on New York and the world. I saw the effect that [Ross] was having on the South.
