Diddy on Hot97

diddy1.jpg 

Diddy was just up at Hot 97 with Angie to offer his rebuttal to the LOX allegations. I understand he brought some paperwork with him, being the paperwork gangster that he is. I haven’t listened to any of it yet ‘cuz I’m still at work, and I may not hear it for a while ‘cuz I’m off tomorrow and I feel like drinking beer. I’ll update this post later with my usual witty insight.

First of all let me just say that for any of us to sit here and try to speculate on who’s right and who’s wrong in this whole situation is a pointless exercise. Unless you’re an entertainment lawyer or you truly understand how publishing works, and have seen all of the legal documents related to the argument, you’re just wasting your breath. That said, lets look at the facts:

  • Puff has had disputes with artists about publishing and proper payment before, this is not the first time.
  • Although he brought a contract with him that states the split is 80-20, when the LOX sent over a contract stating 50-50, he didn’t want to talk about it. All of a sudden, its between him and them.
  • Why does Ms. Wallace, who has been quoted saying that she does not approve of Puff’s business practices, all of a $udden have his back?

Ok, so that last one wasn’t a fact, but you get see what I’m getting at. I’ll admit I’m biased towards the LOX in this dispute, but at the end of the day, if it turns out they were wrong, I’d be the first to admit it. But Puff is trying to paint this picture of them like they are so ignorant to the ways of the industry and he’s just an innocent bystander in this who is being dragged into a publicity stunt against his will. I don’t even see how this would benefit them as a stunt.

"Oh, let’s go on the radio and bitch about how we got jerked for our publishing by Puff. Then when he pulls out the paperwork, let’s draw up a fake contract to counter his." Sorry, I just don’t see how they win from doing that. None of this is going to get Styles album in stores or get them off the blacklist at Interscope, so let’s just relax with all the conspiracy theories.

    S, Biased is an understatement. You have these guys hanging on your wall in your dining room on crosses like they Jesus Christ.

  6. T Nelson Says:

    I dont believe Diddy at all how can he say he dont own the Lox publishing and then turn and say they mad because 50 said something about it on a song…. if it wasnt true why would they get mad about 50 saying it. No disrespect to Ms Wallace but she openly contradicted herself…. Just last month she was saying she told BIG not to trust Diddy now she well taken care of? If you own a Lox cd or one of thier solo joints read the liner notes of each song clearly says “Justin Combs Publishing”. Check it out for yourself.

  7. e dubbs Says:

    He never said he didnt own the publishing. He disputed the percentage points.

    >>He never said he didnt own the publishing. He disputed the percentage points.

    yeah he straight lied about the percentage in front of the whole NY

  9. e dubbs Says:

    “yeah he straight lied about the percentage in front of the whole NY ”

    who says he lied? you? the contract says otherwise. Lox already got caught in a lie about BIG publishing. When in an interview before BIG passed, he stated “I now own my own publishing” and Big’s moms stood behind Puffy.

    Just face it, LOX is over. They getting clowned everywhere over what they did on the radio. They thought it would help them but it backfired. They dumb and they lost.

  10. T Nelson Says:

    But he did say it was not possible to own a percentage of thier publishing

  11. FELY SO WUT Says:

    FRESH: MY NIGGA ES IS A BOY AND HES DEFINITLY ON TOP OF HIS GAME
    E DUBBS: WUTS A MATTER FOR YOU MAN, THE LOX BEAT YOU UP OR SOMETHING. YOU SOUND FLUSTERED! !

    PUFF HAS MADE MANY OVERZEALOUS STAMENTS. FIRST AND FOR MOST THE ONLY PERSON BEING DEFENSIVE IN THE INTERVIEWS WAS PUFF. HE WAS ACTING AS IF HE WERE CRINJA FROM HE-MAN… IT WAS AN INTERVIEW NOT THE COURT OF LAW, ANGIE ALLOWED D-BLOCK TO COME UP AND EXPRESS WHAT THEY FELT TO THEIR FANS NO DIFFERENT THEN IF THEY WERE PROMOTING AN ALBUM.
