Diddy Clarifies His Criticism of DJ’s

February 6, 2009

I know that we’ve given Diddy too much airtime the past couple of days, but this one couldn’t be avoided.  Diddy clarifies his previous comments concerning DJ‘s, calls for responsibility, and dares DJ’s to experiment with their playlists stating, " You have to have the heart to clear the dancefloor."

Note:  Does anyone else find glaring contradictions in his mention of responsibility in music/entertainment?

Diddy should have the heart to clear the dancefloor, to have some straight rugged and raw shit!

But that’ll never happen.

Forget you Diddy!

IF THE DJ HAS TO CHANGE THEN THE PEOPLE HAVE TO CHANGE. AS A DJ ITS HARD ROCKING A PARTY WHEN THE PEOPLE REFUSE TO MOVE TO A SONG UNLESS ITS A HIT THAT THEY KNOW. ESPECIALLY IN BLACK CLUBS,YEAH I SAID IT. MOST PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW THIS BLOG R PROGRESSIVE BUT THE REST OF THE WORLD AINT. AT 10PM PEOPLE R REQUESTIING BEYONCE AND JAY Z….DAMN,LET A DJ BUILD UP TO THAT. THE DJ CANT CHANGE UNLESS THE PEOPLE DO.

Yo man, Im a DJ, Diddy is straight up wack. He single handidly sold out a culture for money, he even watered down B.I.G. he remade Pete Rocks Juicy so he didnt have to pay him and he made it worse and more commercial. He doesnt have a fucking clue what he is talking about he hasnt ever been a part of the culture and if a DJ plays wack shit to keep the crowd moving he’s a fucking wack DJ. DJ’s should play whatever they like and keep the crowd involved by showing their skills. Man I hate all this wack commercial shit. Fucking gay autotune and VST’s, samplings where its at. One last thing, no self respecting HIP HOP DJ would ever play anything Diddy had a hand in, cause not of it has even an inch of artistic integrity, other than B.I.G, but still, Diddy watered that shit down.

TONY – Based one what Pete Rock said in an interview with WaxPoetics, it’s actually TRUE that Pete Rock’s version of Juicy was the joint Biggie originally discovered; but, the Diddy man decided to fuck with it with his production crew (TRACKMASTERS) and smooth it out into a BBQ-type jawn.

Here’s some clarification:

“Producer Pete Rock, who was commissioned to remix the track, alleged that Puffy stole the idea for the original song’s beat after hearing it from him during a visit. Rock explained this in an interview with Wax Poetics:[4]

“I did the original version, didn’t get credit for it. They came to my house, heard the beat going on the drum machine, it’s the same story. You come downstairs at my crib, you hear music. He heard that shit and the next thing you know it comes out. They had me do a remix, but I tell people, and I will fight it to the end, that I did the original version of that. I’m not mad at anybody, I just want the correct credit.”

Rock’s remix for “Juicy” uses the same sample as the original.”

BLACK ROB’s “WOH” was the result of a masterfully produced track by none other than the king of diggin’ — BUCKWILD of DITC fame!

I know I’m late to this one but it must be said:

Diddy’s pissed about not having more stuff to steal. He wants you to take risks and do the research on what will sell so that it can be stolen.

Did I say steal? I meant, transformed into a world class product!

hee hee…
