Diddy Reportedly Managing Nicki Minaj And Rick Ross

UPDATE: Diddy says that speculations are merely rumors, but hints at a big announcement in upcoming weeks.

After rumors surfaced earlier this week that Nicki Minaj would enlist the surfaces of Bad Boy founder Sean "Diddy" Combs as her manager, Billboard reports Nicki's former manager, Debbie Antney, confirmed she had been fired via a written statement.

"I received a letter, which was [a] suspension," read the statement. "The next letter that came in was a cease and desist in doing all business with Nicki Minaj from Nicki's attorney. I love Nicki. I wish her the most success. It's not about the music, she's like one of my children...I wish her no harm, only much success."

Antney also managed Gucci Mane and is Wacka Flocka Flame's mother.

In a less surprising move, Diddy and Rick Ross have also teamed up to do business together after their recent collaborations. In addition to appearing on the "Angels" remix together, Ross and Diddy also lent verses to Wacka Flocka Flame's "O Let's Do It" remix. Earlier this week, Ross talked about getting advice from Combs during a visit to New York, and he also told DJ Envy he and Combs "have a big announcement to make real soon."

Def Jam, Ross' current label, has not released a statement on the matter.

UPDATE: Diddy recently announced in a UStream broadcast that these speculations are merely rumors. The Bad Boy/Sean John mogul spoke that he maintains strong admiration for both artists, he said, ""I have not made no announcement yet, don't believe no rumors about anything y'all hear. me and Nick, we just cool. I like her style. Rick Ross, he's my brother. There's no management announcements or none of that. So everybody, worry about what you're worrying about. It's all right for people to know each other and have an admiration towards each other and maybe pick each other's brains for advice. I will be making an announcement in a couple of weeks on some things."

    P.diddy has been in this game for decades and has contributed much success in the music industry. He has brought many rap sensation all way back from biggie to shyne and 112. He doesn't stop, he has always had great taste in good music. (CHeck my page to see some good music at www.youtube.com/silmusicpage )

  • tomakebeats.com

  • krime

    Yo how much $$ u niggaz wanna bet that that gay ass, wacc ass, massive attack song is gonna go straight to #1 on 106 & park?? I swear that has to be 1 of the most anti-hiphop shows on television... I think bill o'reilly apprecites hip hop more than 106 & their 2 dumbass hosts.

  • WHOSHOTCAM

    diddy definitely swung and missed with the outfit and the weak expressions while lip singing to his altered voice.. diddy sees money.. the chance to make money with Ross.. the chance to get back in the rap game.. diddy's been on that making the band and abandon Black Rob, Shyne, and GDep.. yes, each went to jail, yet he could've improved each one of their situations and kept up.. he already visited Wayne in jail and that's not even his artist.. can ya'll see, or do you just look.. diddy burried the greatest rapper of his time over hyping a fued that could've easily been laid to rest, too much money to be made though.. his concious mind can say what he wants, he was after that money.. screaming and yapping in the back ground of life after death.. he got to big for his britches and stuck to protecting himself.. Ross, don't be the next constestant on that summer jam screen, cause you know who, did you know what, with you know who.. next thing you know it, you're through

      never compare big to rick ross i will find your ip address and kill you.

  • YoungVagabond

    So now Nicki's career is dead. smh. hasn't anyone noticed that Diddy stifles careers? LOL @ Ross being the new Biggie. there will be no one like Biggie so just stop. and Shyne was a better biggie than ross. Ross is trash.

    • WHOSHOTCAM

      Ross is far from trash.. credibility went down a few notches, but his skills are unquestioned.. Ross can make music.. and there will be another biggie if diddy has anything to do with it.. he already tried once, and he'll try again.. shyne couldn't tie rick ross's shoes.. shyne had a few hot slow songs, no flow.. just that lazy flow.. one hot record and two trash albums. Ross is three solid albums in.. all # 1 albums at that

  • LouP

    oh yeah and that massive attack is the worst video slash song I have ever seen an heard dont know how that wack shit gets spins

  • LouP

    Are people actually comparing Rick Ross to Biggie all i can say is wow

    • bobby_b_nice

      i agree, i dont understand the Massive attack track. it sounds like nonsense. anyway i think they are comparing the two in a) their careers = rappers and b) physical appearance: Ross/fat =BIG/fat (no disrespect!) ; Lil Kim/Slutty/Wig Promoter = Nicki/Slutty/Wig Promoter (she has toned it down slightly) now if anyone is comparing the lyrical/talent ability then they are stupid.

  • Really?!

    "enlist the surfaces"? I think that should be "services."

  • TheFUTURE

    People Don't Be Surprised If Diddy is named executive producer On Ross' new album. In alot of ways rick ross is alot like biggie. "When the ressurection of you shines through an individual Lyrical enough, to wear the same crown of thorns literally I'ma pay homage, brooklyns finest Wether it's Queens or Harlem it'll be instant stardom, nigga!" -Diddy

    • tdot1987

      you are reading way too much into this, fuck diddy's faggot ass. Those lines are all ghostwritten. he doesn't matter anymore face it

  • big braveheart

    Diddy is a complete bawbag and who said they're any good either? Rick Ross looks like a fat suge knight or a beached whale!

  • Clark_Kent

    I pray that this inadvertently ends Nicki's career.

    • tdot1987

      who the fuck is cmb? please god don't let that mean cash money birdman or something. Cash money records is the home of the wackest "rap show" in the last decade. I'm about to quit listenin to rap all together because of clowns like you.

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    I think Ross will be alte with Diddy.. Ross reminds him of Biggie remember :) Ross got lyrics and his wordplay aint no joke.. Don't get me wrong, he aint Big though.. He is nice as hell in the booth, can't deny that.. BOSSS!!

  • chonseyt

    The only way you gone make real money in this hip hop industry is if you work with Jay-z Diddy or Fifty all these other labels are just going to use the shit out of you!!

  • JOE6PACKNCGBORO336

    • A...j....

      Puff is the wrong dude to give the path of your career to.. Hasn't anyone noticed no one becomes bigger than him.. The only person that was bigger than him was Biggie and he was "killed by an unknown" Well Nikki you had a nice run

    • NY+
