Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy has offered some advice to hip-hop fans by speaking on the importance of respect in the rap game.
Writing on Twitter, Puffy injected words of wisdom to his 2,700,221 followers.
“The worst mistake anyone can make is being too afraid to make one. — UNKNOWN …sometimes–you just gotta JUMP!!!! Letd GO!,” he wrote Sunday (July 18).
“There are rules to this game. The ones that disrespect the game wake up one day and wonder what happened. They didn’t have respect.” (Diddy’s Twitter)
The advice was co-signed by Rick Ross who re-tweeted Puff’s remarks.

In a recent XXL Magazine feature, Diddy declared his legacy in hip-hop.
“Hands down, undisputed, I’m the undisputed heavyweight champion of hip-hop. We are going to have to deal with those facts. There is nobody that can f*ck with me with what I do, which is getting busy. We are going across the board, as an entrepreneur, innovator, motivator. Who was there first? Who traveled to Europe first? The first. The first. The first. The first. I was the first.” (XXL Mag)
Last year, Diddy talked about how he has been able to keep his Bad Boy brand popular for nearly two decades.
“With me and [Jay-Z], you gonna have to get down or lay down anyway,” Diddy said in an interview. “There’s other rules to this game that you gonna have to abide by. At the end of the day, we understand. We understand the importance of telling the truth. If you’re just getting into the game, you’re probably telling a lie anyway because you’re telling somebody else’s game. If we still here, we’re still here because we’re telling the truth. Number two, we have relationships, and number three, we still know how to make hit records. That’s what this thing is about. You could be five years old, 70 years old — you make a hit record, it’s gonna stand the test of time. It’s something the game has to get used to.” (MTV)
