The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
People have been talking about [artist id="1244169"]Diddy[/artist] and [artist id="1169"]Mase[/artist] reuniting ever since an online video surfaced in which the Harlem MC said he was coming from a meeting with the Bad Boy head honcho. But a different reunion might be going down between Diddy and one of his other acts.
“I would definitely love to do the next [artist id="500953"]LOX[/artist] album,” he told Mixtape Daily recently in Los Angeles. “I would love to collaborate with them. I think it’s important just to do. … I would look forward to it.”
Puff and the Warlocks together again? That would be big news for New York. The two factions were at odds for years before eventually patching things up. Jadakiss has openly discussed the possibilities in the past, but nothing has ever come out of it.
Now, with the Yonkers trio and Diddy both aligned under the Interscope umbrella , it sounds like things could be happening soon.
“We been talking about it,” Diddy revealed. “We have to sit down and have a real meeting about it.”
The ink on Diddy’s new deal for Bad Boy with Interscope is still drying, but he’s hard at work managing projects between the ‘Scope and Atlantic, where a handful of his artists, including Cassie and Day26, still reside.
Acquisitions were on Diddy’s mind, as he spoke about Raekwon’s previous comments about him trying to sign the Cuban Linx rapper and Ghostface. But Diddy has too much unfinished business to handle, not to mention putting the finishing touches on his next album, before he recruits anyone into the fold. So any future plans may have to wait.
“I’ve always been a fan of Raekwon and Ghostface and Wu-Tang,” Diddy explained. “To be honest, I don’t know what the future holds for Bad Boy/ Interscope. I wanna take it day by day and get acquainted. The first move now is to get out this Dirty Money album, The Last Train to Paris. We gonna focus on that. Cassie has a new single, we’re gonna focus on that. Day26, we still in business with Atlantic, we’re gonna see that all the way through. We still have some unfinished business we have to take care of before we get into the future.”
