Diddy appeared on Breakfast Club to speak on various topics such as Kanye’s “White Lives Matter” and Mase’s accusations.
Diddy has delved into the world of fashion and recently supported Kanye West’s beef with Adidas. He called for a boycott of Adidas on behalf of West and the culture.
“Kanye my boy,” Diddy repeated as Charlamagne Tha God said this is a time when West needs OGs to step in. Diddy added, “A super, super, super free thinker. You know what I’m sayin’? And a lot of times, what he means is like, misconstrued. You know what I’m sayin’? And sometimes, just, you know…”
Charlamagne interrupted and told Diddy to stop making excuses for his friend.
“Nah, I’m not making excuses, I’m just sayin’ that if he did it, that’s the way he thinks,” said the mogul. “And I understand white lives do matter, but it’s not that. That was out slogan. That wasn’t our slogan to go share with nobody else. And os, that’s the only message. We don’t have to condemn Kanye or cancel him.”
“But, at the same time, you gotta understand your actions… The action of that. I couldn’t put out the Kanye or nothin’ t-shirt.” He said he had a shirt to promote West but he couldn’t bring himself to do it, but will once he reconciles these latest antics. Diddy mentioned some systemic racism issues, as well.
The rapper also stated that people ‘don’t have to condemn Kanye or cancel him,’ but that he understands that the shirts are ‘very tone-deaf.’
‘I understand white lives do matter, but it’s not that,’ Diddy went on.
‘[Black Lives Matter] was our slogan. That wasn’t our slogan to go share with nobody else… Because right now, we’re the ones that are dying, that are incarcerated, that are left in poverty.’

The subject of Mase and his beef with Diddy was also brought up. “Just in general, the Ma$e thing. I did one album with Ma$e. One album. How much money do you think I owe this guy,” Puff said at the 46-minute mark of the sit-down in reference to Ma$e’s debut 1997 album Harlem World. “And then he became a fake pastor and went and conned people. And y’all gon’ let him throw dirt on the god’s name. Anybody can come and step up. Bring your receipts. But I’m not playing. I’m back outside and I’m fighting back for us. And I’m also doing some fighting back for me.”
According to iTunes, both of Ma$e’s follow-up albums, Welcome Back and Double Up, were also released under Bad Boy. Diddy went on to claim Ma$e owes him $3 million for an advance for an album he never delivered on.
“Ma$e owes me $3 million,” Diddy said. “That’s facts, I got the receipts.”
Diddy continued, “And I’m not gon’ go back-and-forth with Ma$e. I’m not going back-and-forth with nobody. I’m just gonna speak up for myself now.”
“Anybody that thinks I owe them something, show me the receipt and you’ll get paid within 24 hours,” he added.
