It seemed well beyond rumor that Diddy was back in the management game and had picked up two of hip-hop’s most commercially-viable clients Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj.
Rick Ross even confirmed the deal in a recent announcement. Yet last night Diddy got on UStream to set the record straight and end the speculation. No, he’s not managing anyone. They’re just friends. He swears.
“For the record, as I said before, don’t believe the rumors,” said Diddy. “I cannot, you know, I have not made no announcement yet. Don’t believe no rumors about anything y’all hear. Me and Nick, we just cool. I like her style. Rick Ross, it’s my brother. There’s no management announcements or none of that. So, everybody just worry about what y’all worryin’ about… It’s alright for people to know each other and have an admiration towards each other and maybe pick each other’s brains for advice. I will be making some big announcements in a couple of weeks on some things, though.”
