Mark Curry, former artist on Diddy‘s Bad Boy label, puts the venomous mogul on blast in his new tell-all:

A former artist on Diddy’s Bad Boy Records roster is looking to air out the music mogul in a new tell-all book based on his time spent at the label. Mark Curry is releasing Dancing With The Devil, a memoir in which the rapper airs out some of Diddy’s dirty little secrets. One of them being his shady business practices.

Curry, in the book, says Diddy isn’t a caring and nurturing mentor to new artists signed to his label. In fact, he’s quite the opposite. The rapper accuses the label head of stealing his artists’ shine.

“Puff has an annoying habit of inserting himself into the songs and videos of all the artists on his label and its common knowledge that many Bad Boy acts resented him for this,” an excerpt from Curry’s book reads. “Asked about his practice in the July 1995 issue of a magazine aimed at black teenagers, Puff said: ‘I like performing with my artists. I like talking on the records and I like being in the videos. It protects my interests in terms of what I’m going to do in the future. Say if a company tries to remove me. It’s going to be hard to remove me and still have my acts and [have] the same level of intensity and the same flavor and feeling’.”

Not only is Diddy trying to overshadow his artists, but Curry also claims he is taking their hard-earned money as well.

“Puff charged the artists for his appearance on their records and videos, usually without [them] realizing it until they receive their royalty statements,” Curry writes. “That’s when they discovered that their large sums of money had gone to fees which were doubled, tripled and even quadrupled because of Puff’s ‘special appearances.’ He charged artists, for example, for having his Bentley in his videos — which he insisted upon — then took tax credit for business use of a car.”

Dancing With The Devil is slate for release in February. It is 266 pages in length, and features 32 pages of exclusive photos.

This jawn sound like a must read. However, this whole shadiness on Diddy’s part comes as no shock. That was, is and will always be Puffy’s M.O.

    Damn sounds kind of true. Even though Mark Curry is a bum (no mixtape, feature or even a damn picture for the guy) he has credible resources. I don’t know if Puffa Pop, Diddy Doo, Re-Poppa Pop aka Poisonous Combs is as likable as he was once before. Damn all greedy and shady people to hell!!!

    I guess it’s nice to get specifics, but this is not news. I’m sure Diddy is doing even more dirt than this Curry dude knows about. Matter of fact he might find a way to get some of dudes book proceeds.

  • MissBK

    This has been known about Diddy since the very beginning. I think the ONLY artist he didn’t do that with was Biggie and that’s cuz Biggie didn’t play that shit. He helped to make Diddy into what he is today. He has always stole from his artists this is why they all left him at some point in time.

  • LawdhavMercythisshitis real

    Girls and gents we all kno Diddy is a big Mess and since 2001 2002 everyone knowsside badboy … not to sign a deal with diddy he will take u down such a ashame

  • emmy

    LOL

    this is on my book list, forreal.

    LOL @ him playing my nigga Biggie too, and niggas thought they wasn’t gonna play THEM? HE PLAYED ONE OF THE GREATEST RAPPERS TO EVER LIVE, and he’s not gonna play YOU! ahahahahah

  • Bermy's Angel

    this comes as no surprise this is y when it comes to a bad boy artist i cant watch their videos because i know sooner or later fug face is gonna pop up and ruin my day….. All of this was soooooooo obvious with DK and their videos and his little inserts on their songs (which didnt even make any damn sense)….. Its fact that if any artist wants to have a music career bad boy is NOT the way to go!!!

  • emmy

    @ MissBK, he DID play Biggie, with the contracts. Not like outright, but with the contracts, and putting some of Biggie’s shi* in his name, instead of Biggie’s.

  • msT

    Poor Janelle Monae…WHY DID SHE SIGN WITH HIM?!

  • Ermy Erm (Brrr its mad cold)

    There are no words to describe my disdain for this “man” even though he’s a str8 up punkass to me. Temper tantrums and what not when he dont get his way. smh blah.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO @ Puffy being a positive role model? WHEN? Just cuz he got money dont make him a positive role model. and just because he’s “doin it big” dont make him a positive role model either. Things dont make you positive, the way you handle things determine that. And Puffy has not handled things in a respectable way. He has been MAD shady and Karma is a beyotch.

    Whats done in the dark always come to light and i dont think Puffy will be able to handle it when the shit really hits the fan and splatters.
