Well well, would you look at this. Diddy is involved in another publishing dispute. A group that includes some of the industry’s most well known and respected producers are about to take your boy to court over unpaid publishing royalties.
Producers Clark Kent, Easy Moe Bee, Lord Finesse and others are planning to file the suit against Combs, with some of the producers claiming they haven’t seen royalty statements or received payment in upwards of 10 years.
Buckwild, Carlos Broady, The Hitmen, Loon, Craig Mack, Angela Winbush and others are among the producers seeking unpaid royalties from Bad Boy Entertainment, according to a press release issued by representatives for Easy Moe Bee.
Nobody should be surprised by this. Diddy has built his legacy on the backs of his artists since day one, leaving in his wake more disgruntled former employees than Enron. Although the nature of this beef differs from the LOX publishing dispute, I’m interested to hear the opinions of those people who were so quick to side with him in that case. Sure, this doesn’t change the fact that Jada, Styles, and Sheek made some awful business decisions, but it does confirm Diddy’s sheistiness.
