Diddy paid tribute to the “all black everything” movement during his performance at the 2010 American Music Awards, as he donned an elongated blazer and combat boots for his rousing tune, ‘Coming Home,’ with the support of Dirty Money‘s Kalenna and Dawn Richard.

Before the rapper hit center stage, the Dirty Money females, dressed in abstract dresses reminiscent of old maids, opened the set and sang the chorus, “Let the rain wash away/ All the pain of yesterday/ I know my kingdom awaits/ And they’ve forgiven my mistakes/ I’m coming home, coming home/ Tell the world I’m coming home.”

Through a smoky haze, Diddy descended from a platform, all while rapping, “”What am I supposed to do when the club lights come on? It’s easy to be Puff, but it’s harder to be Sean/ What if my twins ask why I ain’t marry their mom?/ Damn, how do I respond?/ What if my son stares with a face like my own?/ And says he wants to be like me when he’s grown?/ Sh–, but I ain’t finish growing.”

While there were no signs of the “Diddy bop,” Mr. Combs jumped in the air and encouraged the audience to wave their hands from side to side. A full orchestra supported the Dirty Money crew as they commanded the attention of those in attendance for a solid four minutes.
