Diddy is a hip-hop legend in pretty much every way an artist can be. So when he cosigns artists people pay attention and that’s exactly what happened with Rick Ross. Diddy gave the Florida rapper his flowers in a new video on his Instagram story. In the short clip, Diddy highlights Ross’ come-up as well as his dedication and drive. It culminates in Diddy calling him a “a hustling motherf****r,” albeit in an endearing way. Rick Ross reposted the clip onto his own Instagram story shortly after it was made.
Diddy and Rick Ross have collaborated on a number of songs in the past. Their most notable link-up came on a remix of Diddy’s track “Hello Good Morning.” Diddy himself just dropped a new single “Act Bad” with City Girls and Fabolous. He also appeared on a remix of Metro Boomin, 21 Savage, & The Weeknd’s hit song “Creepin’” from late last year. Rick Ross has had a relatively busy year so far too dropping his song “The Game” with Fat Joe and The LOX. He’s also appeared alongside Drei and Richie Evans in a pair of guest verses.
Diddy’s Praise For Rick Ross
Diddy has had a chaotic few weeks in the public eye leading up to this point. Yesterday, he was trending on Twitter as fans dove into his past controversies. Earlier this week his son Justin Combs was arrested for a DUI. Following the story breaking Combs’ mother, Misa Hylton went on an extended rant on her Instagram story calling out Diddy and UCLA for the ways they’ve failed him. The incident is still very much ongoing and it’s unclear what Combs’ current situation is like.
Rick Ross on the other hand has been subject to largely positive news. His recent car show attracted lots of attention when Tyler, The Creator showed up. It also received praise from local authorities for going off incredibly smoothly, despite the fact that a fan went viral for parachuting into the show uninvited.
