Is Diddy about the close up shop at Bad Boy Records? The streets are saying that Rap mogul has quietly made moves to shut down the iconic record label.
According to AllHipHop.com and more recently Global14.com, most of the Bad Boy Records staff has been laid off since December. It is said Diddy has moved some of his more noted employees to his other business ventures including Revolt TV, CÎROC Ultra Premium, Blue Flame Agency and the newly acquired DeLeon Tequila.
So what happens to the talent still contracted to the label you ask? It is speculated that both French Montana and Janelle Monáe will be upstreamed directly to Interscope Records. The status on Machine Gun Kelly, Red Cafe and Diddy’s R&B girlfriend Cassie is unclear.
This all stays in the struggle rumor mill as there is yet to be an official statement from Combs. Since 1993 Bad Boy Records has been one of the most successful Rap record companies with reportedly over 75 million records sold worldwide to date.

As a Def Jam Records signee and friend of Kanye West, The Dream has cranked out numerous records with the rapper/super producer and has personal knowledge of ‘Ye’s personality.
Recently sitting down with Vlad TV, The Dream addressed a past rumored collaboration album with Kanye West. He says he would have liked to have done it but didn’t ask Kanye about the possibility.
“It was just a personal thing, whether somebody wants to do it or not at that particular time,” he said. “And the truthful thing is, I never asked him about doing it. It was just one of those things, couple records that sounded good together and I was like, ‘Wow, this would be cool and it was a great time for anybody at that time to do that.'”
When asked about Kanye’s 2009 Video Music Awards rant regarding Beyoncé and singer Taylor Swift, The Dream said Kanye’s rant was career defining for Swift.
“That was the best press move ever for herself,” The Dream said. “It was a cultural moment for her. Defining.”
Dream also says Kanye’s passion is rooted in his interest of visual art particularly at the time of the rant.
“I felt that it was the best video of all time [laughs],” He said when asked about the video. “At that time Kanye was such a visual person and I started to gravitate towards that later on but he has been around for so long and he has an eye for a lot of things and that’s just what he felt.”
