Out Of Pocket: Party Promoters Overcharged B.I.G Fans For Tribute Party… Diddy Claims He Wasn’t Involved

- By Bossip Staff

Fans who were pressed to get inside the tribute party for the late Christopher Wallace were upset when party promoters were charging $100 or more to get in.  Some fans even tweeted their anger.

Details under the hood.

The Lab in Brooklyn was jam-packed with people who either paid $30 for advance tickets or a grip at the door to get in.  People who weren’t so lucky tweeted:

I cannot pay $100 to get in, ” one angry fan tweeted. (Advance tix were $30.)

“This is what happens when you have someone like P. Diddy hosting”

“Let’s hope the money is going to [Biggie’s] Memorial Foundation,”

From our understanding none of the money is going to the foundation or any of B.I.G.’s children. Diddy who claims he had no involvement in profiting or charging for the party tweeted this:

“I am not promoting the party. I’m not making money from this. … As soon as I get there, I will tell them to stop trying to overcharge people.”

SMH, Diddy loves making money way too much. We don’t believe him for a second.

    He is such an azz and it shows by the way that he created his family off of jump -off that have been by his side for years.. He is just a user of people time and enengy and most people still walk away with nothing… This was your man and boy so why not be in every aspect of his party and if not then why give a party in his honor? Let me guess this was really just about U wasn’t it?

    And remember – if it wasn’t for those fans – Diddy and none of them would be RICH. That’s why I have NO respect for Diddy, Jay-Z, etc. etc.. They don’t give a rats arse about giving back to the people who put them on top. Well I hope all you rap fans learned your lesson. They about NOTHING but making your MONEY. They do more for the RED CROSS, then they do for their own people. Here was a chance to show the people you appreciate their dedication and hard earned money – they use to buy your products and make you rich – and this is how they get repaid.

    And then to try and profit off a supposedly tribute to BIGGIES death, disgraceful.

    People will only charge what people are willing to pay. And most artist don’t know what the cover is unless they own the spot. They get thier money upfront.

    When something bad happens Diddy has nothing to do with it (ask Shyne).

    Now if something wonderful had happened, we all know Diddy would be staking claim to it.

  • Mrs. Darren shellychelle Sharper

    diddy is a crook! what did yall expect? Anyine who does business with diddy will be screwed over. Including B.I.G.G.I.E. RIP

  • olgurl

    I heard the promoters donated 10K to Biggie’s kids.

  • redbonekillbill

    Oh Diddy…but had you bought your tickets in advance you would not be complaining, proper planning is key in these kinds of events we all know that.

  • IJS

    People should have purchased their tickets in advance! They knew it would cost more at the door especially if there was a long line to enter. Grow the Hell up people. Diddy is a business man (if he had anything to do with it or not) just grow the hell up, noone made you go to the party

  • Unkle Ruckus

    That why I stay home, save my money, and listen to Biggie on the radio

  • chocalatetunda

    R.I.P biggie. But diddy is a straight loser and scam artist. i dont like him he’s so damn cocky uggh

  • Truth-is-Truth

    I wouldn’t of paid 100 cents to go to this bash. I’ll be dayum, they’re having a party to celebrite the sacrifice of his so-called friend. I would hate to think that Ms Wallace is turning a blind eye to the fact that this doodie chaser may have had a hand in her son’s murder.
