Diddy Compares Rick Ross to Notorious B.I.G.
Diddy has said some remarkable things over the years, but his recent praise of Rick Ross’ rhyming skills might raise some eyebrows in the world of hip-hop. During an interview with Spliff TV on the video set for Dirty Money‘s ‘Angels (Remix),’ the Bad Boy CEO said that Ross’ contribution to the track is comparable to the late Notorious B.I.G. A Biggie sample appears on the original version of Dirty Money’s ‘Angels.’
“Oh y’all ain’t heard the second verse,” Diddy said about Ross’ new part on the remix. “Y’all gonna peep that when we world premiere that. I don’t know, I guess [Rick Ross] and Biggie locked up in the room, my man D-Roc even said that. For my man D-Roc to say that and co-sign like, ‘Yo, my man right there sounding like our homie.’ That right there was something special. That’s a mean co-sign. I don’t know what was going on in the studio, the spirits were connecting but it’s official, you know what I’m saying? It ain’t bootleg. No preservatives in it — it’s organic.”
In related news, a release date still has not been set for Diddy’s ‘Last Train to Paris,’ but the project is expected to hit shelves some time this year.
