He's a talentless leech and a well documented faggot(Refer To mark curry's dance with the devil book)
What type of hetero sexual man goes on Proactive Commercials and says "I just wanna moisturize my sexy"?..
He's a Pawn on a bigger chess board..Personally to me he's anti hip hop.He represents commercialism and making a buck for the sake of watering the game down...His personalty is evil..Like forreal who makes someone walk for miles for a cheesecake? that type of shyt ain't cool on a human level

He's a gangster with the paperwork and the greatest business mind that HipHop has ever had.
...but on the flip-side he turned NY's gritty organic boom-bap into some glitzy shiny-suit Hip-Pop that was so over-commercialized and bubbly that NY damn near lost it's identity. Diddy and the Hit-men were masterful and combining the HipHop-R&B hybrid sound of that era that strayed from the DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Rza soundscapes that were a NY trademark.
Fashion-rap, Cristal & Coogi rhymes, that shit ruled MTV and crossed-over like crazy.....kinda opened the gate for the South to stampede the game with their club-friendly bounce tracks that have dominated the game every since.
Diddy made metro-sexuality seem hip, he mastered the art of product-placement and brand advertising in music/video and his model is pretty much the standard in 2011.
Diddy was a destructive force to HipHop in many ways but from a financial perspective he was a genius.
“We were one of the pioneers of, 'Yo lets make block party records.' Like, what DJ’s used to do, back then, they used to just put on instrumentals of an R&B record and emcees used to just rap over it. So we had that whole mentality of let do that. That’s when everybody started going sample crazy because we started doing that stuff and it was working at radio.
