Let me preface this by saying I’m not really a fan of Rick Ross. Or French Montana. However, I am a fan of Sean Combs, for no other reason than he told us that he won’t stop, and he hasn’t. I first heard this song last week on my way home from the gym. I was not particularly enthralled by the song itself– I tend to dislike remakes– but I did enjoy Diddy’s monologue, which is interspersed throughout the song. Ross won’t divulge to whom this rant of sorts was addressed, which just adds to my amusement. Despite Diddy’s liberal use of the N-word, I think he’s got a pretty interesting message (I’m also ignoring the fact that he was likely referring to himself as God…).

My favorite part:
You don’t wanna embrace your destiny
You wanna get by
You don’t wanna go into the [expletive] dark
Where it’s lonely
You can’t handle the [expletive] the pain
Also, I was chatting with a co-worker today and we realized that Biggie was killed seventeen–SEVENTEEN– years ago. Time really flies.
