Gene Deal responds to BET awarding Puffy a Lifetime Achievement Award.

It was a big night at the BET Awards on Sunday. The mogul was chosen as the recipient of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and gave a shout-out to practically everyone that’s helped him throughout his career.

Kanye West went off-script while presenting Diddy with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards on Sunday, as seen in a video circulating on social media. “When you say ‘energy,’ you’re saying Sean Combs,” the teleprompter can be seen displaying while West is far off-topic.


The surprise appearance featured Ye praising Diddy as his “favorite artist.”

“How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings? To think how far we could just make it off of inspiration,” Kanye said after taking the stage while wearing a full face mask. “This is my favorite artist. You see what I’m saying? Favorite artist. Everything. Not specifically production, the drip. You know back then it was so many rules to hip hop. He broke all of them. Broke down all the doors.”


Gene Deal, who use to work with Diddy as head of security of Bad Boy Records, is in disagreement with the accolade given to the mogul. He believes, the self proclaimed “Love” has not created anyone to be a mogul or to become great in the video below.


In a recent interview on the Drink Champs podcast, the 33-year-old star spoke about how Diddy turned him down from Bad Boy when he was much younger.

“The funniest part- a lot of people don’t really know this- but Diddy turned me down,” said Brown. N.O.R.E. was eager to talk about it, asking the Virginia native if he danced for Diddy, too. “If you danced, he definitely would’ve signed you,” joked N.O.R.E.

“It’s love now. That’s family, that’s my brother now,” explained Brown. “Im’a keep it 100. So I was like 12, at this time. This was before I linked to Def Jam. It was me and one of my production managers’ son named TJ; he’s my brother to this day. Me and him were like a group.”

“What was the name of y’all group?” asked N.O.R.E., to which Brown responded with “We didn’t have no name.”

“This is why he didn’t sign y’all,” said N.O.R.E. to everyone’s amusement.
