Rap mogul Diddy has appeared to place an end to a brewing dispute with 50 Cent by calling rap beefs "played out."
Writing via Twitter, Puff referenced late rapper Notorious B.I.G.'s "Beef" record.
"That's how it is, my sh#t is laid out/F@ck that beef sh&t, that sh*t is played out" The Notorious B.I.G. feat. @iamdiddy ... Still so true," Diddy wrote Monday (June 28).
"There's nothing in the universe like the POWER OF LOVE! www.diddyblog.com Join the evolution and the solution! Rt to someone you love!!!" (Diddy's Blog)
Speculation of whether or not Diddy was subliminally dissing 50 Cent developed during a post BET Awards 10 broadcast Sunday night.
"I love my people, eh yo let's stop the hate man," Puff said during the BET Awards 10 afterparty. "Congratulate. Hate is for suckers and if you hating, you're a sucker and you're ashy and your breath stinks. And you know who I'm talking to you hatin' a** crab." (BET Awards 10 Afterparty)
Recently, 50 said Diddy is not an authentic emcee because he uses ghostwriters.
"You know what's interesting, he's not an artist," 50 said in an interview with Nancy B. "An artist would be somebody that actually wrote something, maybe on the record or because we have R&B artists that don't actually write music, maybe it's unfair because of the pressures people put on me. Imagine if I just sat around and listened to people's CDs and say I'm just gonna say the first verse I hear that sounds good. That would completely take away the pressure and I would still be the artist in front of you with a new song every two minutes because every artist that has a song that would like to make some money off it would send it. It doesn't make you special. When you actually do what I thought was a part of hip-hop and made the culture exciting to me, which was each person's original experience and how you learn to enjoy them as an individual and their portion of their life. So when that's not there because they're being an executive, saying you don't write rhymes you write checks, that's not hot. For hip-hop, that's not hot. Maybe for another genre it'll work, R&B or something else because they're made, these people are all made and when companies decide they're gone, they're gone. Immediately, because they couldn't even figure out what to do without a team of people figuring it out for them." (WZMX Hot)
Earlier this month, Diddy revealed plans to launch his new blog based on positive topics.
"The blog is an all 100 percent positive blog," Diddy said in a video. "It's about inspiring you, motivating you, empowering your dreams. It's not about any news about who's dating who, who's not doing good, who got exposed today, who's this, who's that, you can go to the other sites for that. It's about motivation and inspiration and love -- the love movement has begun. Even haters are allowed to come to DiddyBlog.com. It makes your teeth whiter. We want all of your advice, your constructive criticism, your positive notes because we want to make DiddyBlog the best it can be and we want you guys to give us the time to make it the best it can be. Can you imagine that I will not be selling CIROC on there? I will not be selling Sean John, I will not be talking about my movies or television shows. I can't believe I'm saying this but yeah, I'm saying it. No Diddy promotions. It's all about the love. I love you guys, DiddyBlog.com." (YouTube)
