Diddy Covers VIBE (Aug/Sept 2010)

Puff and the Diddy bunch cover VIBE‘s 15th annual Juice issue. The mag hits newsstands on August 16th, but VIBE has an excerpt below.

Dr. Dre said that the last beat that floored him was “All About the Benjamins.” How does that make you feel?
It’s humbling. I was in the studio with Dre the other day. He started working on a record for me. Watching him as a producer is watching greatness. We had a lot of similar traits. It was like looking in the mirror. He would ask questions like, “How you feel about this?” People don’t really understand true producers want to know how you feel about things. We are some of the most observant people on the planet.

What happened during the Martin Bashir interview on Nightline?
There were times in the interview when I had to give him an ultimatum. The questions weren’t being handled the right way. In hindsight, when I saw him I shouldn’t had done the interview because I know the style of interview that he does . . . The whole thing about giving a Maybach to my son, that’s really like a racist question. You don’t ask White people what they buy their kids. And they buy ‘em Porsches and convertible Bentleys and it ain’t no question. It’s really a racist question and put things back in perspective with money and the way that people still look at you. And I’m not saying that consciously he’s a racist. But he probably don’t even realize that he would not ask Steve Jobs that. He would be like Steve Jobs has that money and that’s the gift his kid is supposed to get.

Are the comments from Lil’ Kim about Nicki disheartening?
When I heard her say what she said, it didn’t really affect me. I didn’t get mad at her or anything like that. I knew how she felt. I ain’t agree with it. But also I know the motivation. I know that people say, “Oh, he’s trying to get a new Lil’ Kim.”  I guess people will see in time. Yeah, Nicki’s had flavored wigs on, but besides that it ain’t even the same approach to the writing.

  • Fuck Ya Life

    While Diddy has done alot of shit I think niggas do give him credit for a lil to much shit. I mean this is the same nigga that blood sucks off a artist then just ditch em’ for another nigga like that. Look at bad boy records as a whole they aint have a plat record in years and all this dream team talk is from niggas not on his record label.

  • Mr Garcia

    HORUS THE BITCH✔

  • haaaaaaaaaaaa

  • http://dollarsmakesense.wordpress.com WULU

    take that. take that.

  • Hollaatchaboy

    yall niggas kill me how you talking about “diddy still relevant even all these years later”.. that nigga relevant why? cuz he bought a cover? His album is about to flop when it hits.. all his artists are trash.. rick ross was number 2 in a week where nothing else came out and couldn’t take the top spot from a nigga that been out 5wks.. and niggas don’t even buy c.d.s no more. ha

    Diddy been living off of B.I.G. is whole career.. that nigga lucked into signin B.I.G and now yall niggas act like he a damn genius.. that nigga ain’t never had another BIG star since then.. if he soooooo damn smart why he don’t have any stars on his label?

    look at his biggest stars.. black rob, loon, g. dep, all those other hanger ons in that bad boy for life joint.., nigga couldn’t do shit with the LOX.. mase ass went crazy and ran to the ATL.. he done been on how many MAKING THE BAND shows and ain’t made one fuck band or STAR… where BABS? where NESS? Chopper city? Dilan? what about that singin ass white dude he had??? What about Danity Kane??? Look at all these loses a nigga done took…
    And that ain’t even mentioning that bitch ass move he pulled on Shyne..

    I can’t believe yall niggas would respect him after that..

    All i’m sayin is where the hits at Diddy?? thats niggas biggest hits were with B.I.G… or songs about B.I.G. passin… ha..

    git the fuck outta here!!!

    LTTP guaranteed flop.

  • Nathaniel

    Janelle Monae right where she needs to be. on the COVER cover. not the fold out. but real talk, she needs a cover of Vibe by her damn self.

    …real talk.

  • Sonsay

    Diddy pulls the race card….smh. Weak sauce.

  • jburg

    @hollaatchaboy

    Nigga you talking like Diddy stole your lunch money or something!! LOL!! You are right on point though. That nigga hasn’t really had a hit since, “Bad Boy for Life”. I agree with everything you said. Though the cover looks good none of them have a certified “hit” and Monae has potential because of her unique style and TRUE talent but she will get lost in the sauce with this nigga.

  • Nathaniel

    @hollaatchaboy

    i understand what you’re saying… but the fact of the matter is, my nigga. diddy ain’t never went no where. album sales shmalbum shmales. he’s like 5% recording artist, 95% music mogul and business entrepreneur. and in that category he stays winning. and he stays relevant. (u forgot to mention how BIG Making The Band was… who’s creation was that? Diddy) production on American Gangter too. Ciroc is murking them white folks that make vodka. and Biggie needed the business brains of puff to be Biggie… he had the talent, but puff developed the fuck outta that nigga. faith had a run, 112, etc. puff can’t keep niggas hot. they gotta do that. everybody come and go but he still here. still making money even if he did blood suck from 94-2007. lol i think the niggas tryna change directions and be more of a buffer for talent: Janelle Monae. <—example.

    in any case. i don't spend too much time, when it comes to other niggas, criticizing success. i'd rather target these crackas. lol, but that's just me. peace my nigga

  • Nathaniel

    @Sonsay

    this ain’t no game, fucka. no such thing as a race card. pay attention, there’s validity in his statement. if you disagree, offer otherwise. if not shut ya bumbaclat, HA!

  • illllsonnn

    And We stilll reppin shadyyy aftermattthhhhhhhh

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    Almost feel the shit he said about the Maybach and im white but can understand what he was saying……ALTHOUGH, comparing himself to Steve Jobs ha, sorry diddy, ur not even FUCKING with Steve Jobs, neither is Jay-Z……and im a jay-z STAN.

  • jburg

    ^^^ he wasn’t comparing himself? He was giving and example. What the fuck are you talking about?

  • Hollaatchaboy

    SIDENOTE: Diddy didn’t create making the band.. it actually had already been made a few years where they were trying to make a Boy Band with that Lou nigga that created backstreet boys and nsync.. diddy.. (king of the remix, of theivin lol) just flipped it with MTV and did a hip-hop type deal.

    granted he made money as a businessman.. but I have no respect for the nigga as a music talent finder, producer, or a MAN.. after what he did to shyne and how he has piggy backed B.I.G’s legacy to make dough… I think you wrong saying he was the brains and made B.I.G. biggie woulda been biggie if any nigga woulda found him.

  • freakshow

    Hollatachaboy

    Seems like you’ve been following a man’s career who isn’t relevant. Hilarious.

  • Hollaatchaboy

    freakshow: suck a dick homie.. I follow music in general.. not diddy.. shit I’m responding about yo bitch ass right now and you ain’t relevant you just a fag that beats his shit to drake’s picture. Most niggas that follow hip-hop knew everything that I said. you probably from that souljah boy generation.. probably got wacka in your top 5 lyricist.. git the fuck outta here nigga!!!

  • freakshow

    ^

    Seems like you have an issue with OTHER people’s success. Hilarious.

  • freakshow

    Congratulations to Sean “Diddy” Combs. Nobody’s hands are clean. And I will not be suckered into Hollatcaboy’s childish remedial rants. It’s so beneath me. Hilarious.

  • Hollaatchaboy

    freakshow: thought I told you to suck a dick?

    I don’t give a fuck about his success.. .doesn’t matter to me either way.. just schoolin fags like you to the game. Nigga ain’t relevant musically is all I was saying.. I also said nigga had made money.. if you spent more time reading and less time on my nuts.. you’d know that my nigga..

    look out.. we got a hollaatchaboy stan..

    nigga you stalkin me like a mutha fucka.. fuckboy.. go back to listening to nelly you wackass bitch.

  • Hollaatchaboy

  • ..food 4 thought, yall nuggas do tha dishes..

  • PRAY

    Damn, it’s THE MASONS edition of The Vibe?!That Darkside Illuminati Sh*t Is Really Becoming More & More Visable….I hope all of you can see it too. Don’t Purchase or Support This Issue!!!!
    PLUS, they never repp’d GURU when he passed, F*ck’em!

  • Fuck Ya Life

    Man these people and this dumb ass Illuminati shit they just as bad as the dumb asses on the 2012 shit. Ya’ll look way to into it. I won’t support this cuz I don’t fuck with Ross, Diddy, Cassie is a one hit wonder bitch the other 2 bitch are back up singers and Red Cafe’ is pure ass.

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    @jburg

    Your an idiot, he compared his money to Steve Jobs…..if steve jobs bought his son a fucking PLANET no one would ask questions because hes got that dough. Diddy is rich but buying his son a fuckin Maybach raises eyebrows because that is a shit ton of money to spend on a 16 yr old kid, who probly has worked for fuckin nothing in his life. So shutup…bitch.

  • B-Wis

    All I care about is the “what are eminem and dre cooking up?”

    Diddy is a business man, not an artist.

  • jburg

    @TIm Lee

    Apparently I got more sense than your dumb ass. Read the whole excerpt he first stated, “white people” then used Steve Jobs, a rich white person as an example. Apparently you have problems deciphering written words. Stop with the bitch shit cause if I saw you face to face you wouldn’t say that shit. Don’t be an internet thug. And what makes you think Steve Jobs’ kids have worked harder than Diddy’s kid? Dumb fuck!! You fit right along with exactly what Diddy was saying. You’re probably too ignorant to realize it.

  • Don Instinct

    Diddy got a burlesque group.

  • bgirl

    So…we’re all agreeing that Cassie being remotely even involved in this cover is ridiculous?!
