Diddy expressed some skepticism in an Instagram video regarding Hip Hop’s current path on Tuesday (February 27).
For about one minute, Diddy spoke about people who want to be rappers. Diddy explained he’s not trying to discourage anyone’s goals, but he’s leery of the culture becoming “diluted.”
“So many people rapping right now,” Diddy said. “It is literally like too much. It’s a lot to take in every day. Everybody saying the same shit in different ways. These are just my opinions. I’m not knocking nobody’s dream. I just don’t want the culture to get diluted, you know? Where it gets so mass produced it doesn’t mean anything.”
Diddy also encouraged artists:
“Artists have to be special,” he said. “Every artist has to be unique in their own right. I’m just trying to say I guess if you gonna be in this game, be great because you can also be part of the noise.”
