Hip-Hop Rumors: Diddy “Clarifies” Rick Ross Comparisons to Biggie?!

Anyone whose been a Hip-hop fan for a while knows Diddy’s affinity for attaching himself to whoever is the hottest artist out at the moment. He did it with Nas, Nicki Minja, Rick Ross, and now with French Montana. He’s a smart dude, and this strategy keeps him relevant.

Back when Diddy was having a bromance with Rick Ross, he struck a nerve in many Hip-hop fans when he compared Rick Ross to the Notorious B.I.G. We’re Ross fans and all, but that’s blasphemy! Well, recently Diddy was a guest on the DJ Whoo Kid Show, and he clarified what he meant by the comparison.

“I said on the ‘Angels’ verse, I think he channeled Biggie at night. A lot of emcees, they channel Biggie in some of their verses. You hear the influence. When you channel the influence, that doesn’t mean they’re comparing someone to them. I think I also said that he was the Biggie of the South, because I was there. I knew the effect that Biggie was having on New York and the world. I saw the effect that Ross was having on the South.”

Check out Diddy backtracking, ahem, ahem, “clarifying” his Rick Ross comparison to Biggie at the 7:45 mark:

    its funny how anybody overweight with a low tone voice and mild lyrical flow gets compared to biggie. Listen, imma break it down like a fraction..the hip-hop game is in a 1990’s warp and you know why because the same cats who was pivotal then is still doing it now. Take mr. combs for example. Major genuis..shrewd businessman..but come on he can only compare rick ross to biggie cause thats what he seen. I call the era of rap kool-aid-doo-doo water because he though it look bright and sweet its loaded with a fecal matter from the past..the 90’s to be exact. I think rick ross something completely different from biggie. Just nicki minaj..she got compared to lil kim in the begining, but really she nothing like lil kim but if thats all you’ve seen she gotta be the next lil kim. don’t believe me just check the game for yourself..its 90’s cats at the top. Cash MONEY(98) lIL WAYNE (98) Diddy(91) Dr DRE.(88) jAY-z(ALL 90’S) even Kanye is nintes cause he doin stuff fro Jermanine dupri (life in 1472 album) LIKE ROSS, DRAKE, NICKI, Kanye AND all of them but its still a 90’s influence..honstley we haven’t heard the future yet we just keeping hearing influnces from the 90’s which could be why the game keeps getting so stagnant lately.
    I believe the next wave artist are going do something a lot more fresher and cutting edge but i don’t think we will see that unitl about 2016

      Interesting point of view…you might be right. In hip hop though everybody wants the new artists to pay homage to the old though. Maybe we need to stop paying homage and let the young bucks do their own thing. Might make for some new original ideas.

      • Tony G.

        letting the youngins do their thing is why hip hop is garbage now…im not saying nobody gotta always pay homage..but definitely learn from the vets and step ya games up…cuz these youngins are lame as fukc

      • TheBoxcarHobo

        Oh without a doubt, you have to know where you came from to know where you’re going. We can’t blame the younger generation completely for hip hop being garbage cuz its not all trash, the trash is whats gettin pushed by the labels though. There are a bunch of young talented, creative rappers out here.They just don’t have, and won’t get that mainstream push. At some point all that homage paying turns into straight up emulation so we end up with stagnant ass music b/c everybody is trying to be like somebody else instead of being themselves.

      Continued………… Lol

      Naw totally dis-agree.    I remember it was 97,  and my big bro just came home.
      And we was watching this big tribute or special. And all his friend & family,
      Was saying how BIG, was such a nice guy. Good kid.
      Love his mom.  And how  cats took his one bid, he had to do,
      I think he was, caught down south. ( not the gun case, d-roc took)

      Or maybe it was in NY, and he had to do a little skid-bid.
      But mr.cee, his mans & all them was like man, BIG only had ine arrest,
      Or stink in jail. Basically it was glorifying the dead,
      He was a good dude, niggas took the beef to far type shet.

      His mom was on the joint, saying he. TOLD other people stories.
      Which is “TRUE” for most rappers.

      But i remember my bro laughing @ me cause i was a BIG  fan.
      And he was like,  see he fake.  And his peeps is telling it.

      Now the story, aint gonna make sense, unless i explain the whole reason,
      On why he said BIG, was a liar.

      But what i told my brother was people can do a good job, of hiding who they really are.
      Yeah BIG mom and his friends,  paint this picture of him.
      Cause that the “side of him they KNOW”. Or he showed them.

        Hold up. These niggahs up
        @ AHH think. They smarter then me all of a sudden. Lol
        Smh. They put a ban, on either, my characters per post or page,
        Or a limit on how long my replies can be. …….

        Cause i noticed last couples of weeks. I can post a long reply or comment.
        But everybody else can. My post always come up.
        “Moderators approval” like they got my account flag or something.

        Just like you couldnt post a link at first.
        But if you post a link as a reply. @ one point.
        It made it threw. But then they caught on to that.

        Chuck, & greg, and illcoon. Stop fuking with me on the bull shet.???????

        im rocking with yo BROTHER on this one “EL” – dont get me wrong i dont put an OT trip past nobody “WILLIAM ROBERTS” included …

        but by no stretch of the imagination does a few OT trips make either BIG/ROSS a boss, kingpin, robbing the dread for his lambspread, etc…

        did they know of REAL STREET NIGGAHS – yeah! 

        I think BIG was more of a I WANNA BE DOWN type of niggah than anything and i say that because of the stories his mama and his own podnas told. 

         At some point and time that PEER PRESSURE has more authority than your own PARENT – and the false bravado you get from thinking THESE NIGGAHS GOT MY BACK can make the strongest willed niggah fall to peer pressure. 

         Think about that special you and yo relly was watching – go watch that NOTORIOUS (biggie) then go look at THE REAL IS BACK  (jeezy) – there aint no comparison B.
