Diddy is sending through a clear-cut message, Forewarning the loss of Hip Hop Culture. He feels as though, if the ones who actually built the culture aren’t put in the fore-front its possible that Hip Hop Culture can fade From the original standing point and ones that paved the way such as KRS-One, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Sugarhill Gang no longer have the same value as Vets in the music game.
Another gang of rappers that came from inspiration are Biggie, T-Pac, Snoop Dogg etc in which today’s generation look at as ol’ school rappers. Diddy used a clip of a video with a bunch of white kids mimicking a Rap video from St. Louis rapper AMR Dee Huncho’s 2017 cut “Body Bags & Bricks.” In the video, the kids were sitting on top of a parked car rapping song while they flex their cash.

“Our culture is a global resource,” Diddy captions under the clip on Instagram. “Let’s not play ourselves and wake up one day and not own our own culture. Tighten up on your contracts, tighten up on your deals. Demand ownership. Demand equity. Protect your culture. IT’S FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY BUT FOR US TO OWN!”
