Diddy is doing the right thing and giving back to the artists who helped build his iconic Bad Boy Entertainment imprint.
The Hip-Hop mogul has reassigned all of his Bad Boy publishing rights back to the artists and songwriters who signed with the label—including Ma$e, Faith Evans, The LOX, and the Notorious B.I.G.’s estate, amongst others.
Diddy reportedly began the process of reaching out to the artists and songwriters in 2021 after he turned down multiple offers to sell the catalog of records belonging to Bad Boy. Reports indicate that several nine-figure offers were on the table.
The majority of Bad Boy artists have already signed off on the offer to gain ownership of their publishing rights, however the label is still in the process of locating some parties.
