Diddy isn’t going easy on former Making The Band contestants regarding their criticisms of his show.
According to Vibe, the rapper wrote an Instagram post seemingly blaming the contestants on their own lack of success in the industry. “”STOP ALL YOUR CRYING, BIT*HING & MOANING. HUSTLE HARDER OR GET THE FU*K OUT OF OUR WAY,” he wrote, signing the post with his new moniker, Love, and wrote the caption, “No ego, just hustle.”
However, there’s nothing loving in his seeming irritation with those who have criticized him for his treatment of them on the MTV series and beyond.
As we reported Tuesday, rapper Freddy P said he “hates life” because of Diddy, and revealed he has had suicidal ideation from his time on the show.
He also revealed, according to Vibe, that he is upset that making it in the industry is more about connections than actual talent.
“I don’t even know how I started thinking like that. I done had it all and I fell to the bottom,” he said in an Instagram video. “How do you come back from that when you battling a giant? It ain’t got nothing to do with your skill no more ’cause your skill is 90 percent better than any n—-a that’s out there right now and the world knows it. But it ain’t your skills … the world is built on relationships.”
Other former contestants who have complained about Diddy include Babs Bunny and Willie Taylor.
They all blame the rap mogul for the trajectory of their music careers. Also, as fans of the rapper know, this isn’t the first time Diddy has been accused of mistreating artists, with allegations of not properly paying artists.
