For many years there's been a narrative that Diddy jerks his artists out of money, and Ma$e, who was signed to his Bad Boy label, has been one of his biggest critics.
In July of this year, for example, the Harlem rapper said Diddy didn't pay him for everything he's done at the label and he's still trying to hold him back.
Diddy spoke about all of this during a recent visit to The Breakfast Club, and he denied swindling his artists or stealing from Ma$e.
“You think I’m a scumbag that would ever steal anything," said the rap mogul. "I never took nothing from nobody a day in my life. All I ever given was opportunity and more money than a person was making … So this vibe that they got on me, like I’m Big Red or something, [it isn’t accurate] … I opened up the doors."
“People have this thing called the tap out button," added Diddy. "When you get to a certain point and the money is running low, you gotta run this hustle and try to find someone to blame. I have all my receipts … Mase owes me $3 million. That’s facts. I got the receipts.”
Diddy also said that he'll host a special of some sort where he'll ask all of his Bad Boy artists to bring their receipts to back up any grievances they have with him.
You can see what else he had to say above.
