Speaking to New York radio station Hot 97, Combs turned his attention to politics, saying: “We got Obama into office, the give back, the deal, where are the things in our community that have gotten drastically better?”
The rapper/producer, who has been involved in Vote Or Die campaigns in the past, continued: “Let’s stop overcomplicating it. The hugest group of people that get you into office, you have to change their lives for the better. Pick a side, because they got you into office. And if that side just happens to be black people, and you’re black, you still have to do what’s fair.”
Combs acknowledged that “being the president is a hard job” but called on Obama to deliver “directed aid. Unapologetically sending direct aid to black communities. Let’s not try to hide it. Unapologetically spend billions of dollars to uplift black communities… We just need some education, some jobs… and we want to know that it was for us”.
“I’m not going after Obama. I’m just saying that time is ticking and we need some repayment on the deal. The black community got President Obama into office, and there should be some nice parting gifts to give our youth, our future, a better chance.”

Pusha T recently talked about his admiration for late hip-hop icon Notorious B.I.G. and proclaimed him the greatest rapper ever. “I believe the Notorious B.I.G. was the greatest rapper who’s ever lived. I remember in ’94, when Ready to Die came out, I was in 11th grade, living in my mother’s house in Virginia. There was a frenzy at my high school, arguing and talking about that album. We used to spend hours in the car, reciting his raps, trying to figure out what in the hell made him veer off in this way or that way.”

“People don’t know anything about my business, right? It’s really not their business,” Reid said. “That’s the truth about it, right? We’re not elected officials here. And we’re not at liberty to disclose how we do business. It’s fair practice, I can tell you that. But, it’s not the industry that it once was. We seriously don’t make the money we used to make. That’s a fact of life, right?
“Bobby Shmurda is not the same as Snoop Dogg andMurder Was The Case, who’s coming off The Chronic and his first album,” he continued. “It’s a different era, ya know? And, we’re a publicly held corporation. We just aren’t in the same position we were in back in those days. So, it’s a different day.”

“I’m crazy about that kid and I think about him often,” Reid said. “And I feel like, ya know, his better days are ahead of him. I do believe that. And I think it’s unfortunate what has taken place.
