I Have A Problem With Diddy...

Yes, I do have a problem with Diddy. His upcoming album "Last Train To Paris" which is actually sounding pretty good is the problem. He's taken a while with his group Dirty Money to put out this album. I expect the album to be recieved well, but the problem I have with it is that the only reason it's even good is because of the production and artists featured on the album. Let me be clear Diddy has next to no musical talent, but he does recognize good talent which is what he should stick to. For the past couple of months I've heard demos from his upcoming album from artists who will be featured on the songs, and when I hear the final version with Diddy on it I get disappointed. I'm just saying these songs are good but Diddy just makes them worse. And the fact that all his raps on the album are ghostwritten makes it even worse. If you notice Rick Ross ghostwrote a verse on "Looking For Love". No hate. All love. Take these as examples.

Great post Nas,

with what your saying I have to agree with. The music sounds ok because of the production team and features. E.g. When you listen to the J Cole verison of "Im Coming Home" to Diddy there such a big different in quality.

Diddy does not write his own songs he gets artists to write raps and that for him. Like Dr Dre does. Why does diddy not stick to producing as thats what got him started in hip-hop.

I totally agree with you Diddy should stick to what he's good at.

haha I agree, Diddy was never a good rapper. But at the same time he has said so himself... Maybe he just does it because he thinks it's fun with no intentions to sell that good. But as an entrepreneur of the industry, he's the best!
