Former Bad Boy Ghostwriter Mark Curry Takes Aim at Diddy

Mark Curry, a former Bad Boy rapper and Diddy ghostwriter, is setting sights on his old boss in a new tell-all book entitled ‘Dancing With the Devil.’ While it’s nothing new for the unemployed to take shots at the crown, Curry does come with a substantial bombshell that many of us suspected all along: Notorious B.I.G. was planning to leave Bad Boy before his death in 1997.

“Biggie was already on his way out the door,” said Curry in an interview with Gyant Unplugged. “I just remember the stories of when Biggie would want money from Puff, and they would be doing a show and Biggie wouldn’t show up to the show until ten minutes before the show and Puff would be like “Where is he at? Where is he at?” That’s where he would get his leverage. Biggie knew that Puff needed him. If you break it down and look at the situation for what it truly is, Biggie Smalls made Bad Boy. Bad Boy is Biggie Smalls.”

Curry explains that Notorious and his Junior M.A.F.I.A. associates already had the plans ready for a new label with fairer pay practices. As with most things Diddy, money was behind everything and Curry uses B.I.G. as a springboard to rail on Combs’ venomous contacts with other artists.

I mean, there must be something there. How many people from the original Bad Boy roster are still producing something significant? I’ll wait…

Curry writes in the first chapter, “Even worse, Puff charged artists for his appearances on their records and in the videos, usually without their realizing it until they received their royalty statements. That’s when they discovered that a large sum of their money had gone to fees which were doubled, tripled and even quadrupled because of Puff “special guest appearances.” He charged artists, for example, for having his Bentley in their videos – which he insisted upon – then took a tax credit for business use of the car.”

Dang. Let’s just hope Mr. Curry can make some scraps from this book, because he sure ain’t coming back to the game any time soon.
