Four years after Diddy adopted another new nickname and started calling himself "Love," the hip-hop mogul has made it government official. The Bad Boy CEO posted his new Florida ID on social media to confirm his name change.
Diddy Becomes ‘Love’ Officially
Back in 2017, Diddy began referring to himself as Love, which he still does to this day on social media. The veteran rapper/producer/executive recently made the l-word his new middle name, which he shared on Instagram with a pic of his driver license. (Is his address really just a whole island?)
“Look what I just got in the mail today… 🖤💫✨⚡️IT’S OFFICIAL!!! WELCOME TO THE LOVE ERA.”
Diddy’s Two-Oscar Clam Might Be Cap
When Two Distant Strangers won the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short at this year’s Academy Awards, Diddy claimed on social media (in a post he’s since deleted) that it was his second Oscar victory as a producer. Since then, it’s been reported that Brother Love doesn’t actually have any Oscar awards to his name. So what’s the real story?
“I’m incredibly blessed to WIN MY SECOND OSCAR as a producer for UNDEFEATED and now @2distantstrangers!! Words can’t describe how I feel right now winning alongside my brothers @JoeyBadass @VanLathan @Travon @nicholas_maye @MartinDesmondRoe @LawrenceBender @ijessewilliams @easymoneysniper WE DID IT!!! #BlackExcellence #TwoDistantStrangers #OSCARS2021
Joey Bada$$ Stars In Oscar-Winning Two Distant Strangers
Rapper/actor Joey Bada$$ plays the lead role in Two Distant Strangers, which addresses police brutality against Black men. The platinum-selling MC has been building a strong Hollywood resume with his turns in Wu-Tang: An American Saga and Mr. Robot, among other roles.
Cartoonist Carter James’ repeated attempts to get home to his dog are thwarted by a recurring deadly encounter that forces him to re-live the same awful day over and over again.
Cormega Tells The Truth About Diddy + Black Rob
On a separate note, New York rapper Cormega recently wanting to clear the air in Diddy’s defense. The hip-hop veteran came forward to speak out on the passing of ex-Bad Boy Records legend Black Rob and reveal just how much Diddy should be acknowledged.
“The truth is a ray of light when we are clouded with judgment so let me shine some light on the speculation. Diddy did a Bad Boy Reunion Tour and Rob was included! Diddy looked out for him recently. Diddy is handling the funeral arrangements. If you can’t match what he’s done you should not blame a man for someone’s death. Rob was my guy I proudly worked with him when he was no longer in the spotlight. And I think it would be better served if people reserve their words for condolences to the family and for positive moments instead of the divisive speculation that stops us from unifying and growing as a culture. Blame (b•lame) Don’t be lame. RIP ROB salute to all who stand for something condolences to his family condolences to his Bad Boy peers condolences to the fans who respect his music. Salute”
