AceShowbiz - Sean "P. Diddy" Combs has been applauded by a lot of people due to his powerful speech against the Recording Academy, but people who have worked with the 50-year-old music mogul felt otherwise. After Sauce Money, it was Mase's turn to take to social media to call out Diddy and accuse him of hypocrisy.
In the Friday, January 31 post, Mase took issue with the way Diddy exploits his artist and claimed that he once tried to buy back his masters from Diddy to no avail. "Your past business practices knowingly has continued purposely starved your artist and been extremely unfair to the very same artist that helped u obtain that Icon Award on the iconic Badboy label," he said, using his past experience as an example.
"For example, u still got my publishing from 24 years ago in which u gave me $20k. Which makes me never want to work w/ u as any artist wouldn't after u know someone is robbing you & tarnishing your name when u don't want to comply w/ his horrendous business model," he continued, saying that he had offered $2 million for his masters before. However, Diddy refused the offer unless he could surpass the "European guy's offer."
He went on to recall the experience he had at 19 years old, "Or else I can wait until I'm 50 years old and it will revert back to me from when I was 19 years old. You bought it for about 20K & I offered you 2m in cash." Mase concluded his lengthy post by demanding Diddy do better in the future. "No More Hiding Behind 'Love'. U CHANGED? GIVE THE ARTIST BACK THEIR $$$. So they can take care of their families."
Sauce Money said similar things after Diddy called out the Recording Academy for not respecting hip-hop and black music. He said on Instagram at the time, "I can honestly say I respect the message, just not coming from him. He practices the same backdoor politics against his own people. Him and his friend Jay-Z."
Meanwhile, Diddy hasn't responded to the accusations.
