Diddy Reminisces On Notorious B.I.G., 14 Years After His Death

During a co-hosting gig with New York City's Power 105.1 Diddy spoke on Biggie, the Jackie Robinson Award, and Charlie Sheen.

Earlier today (March 8) rapper/businessman Diddy took to the airwaves as he co-hosted Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club with Angela Yee and Charlamagne The God. Diddy spoke on a variety of topics and of course took some time to speak on Notorious B.I.G. on the 14th anniversary of the iconic rappers death.

“It’s a constant thing. When it’s something like that that happens and somebody who is like music you listen to and is just a part of your motivation…It’s something that you relive, but to be honest March 9 for us is a day of celebration it ain’t really like a day of mourning,” Diddy explained. “It goes off in New York City. Like tomorrow everywhere, all the stations especially here. It’s gonna be going hard in the paint on Biggie and then at night it goes down. Even throughout the weekend so it’s really great when you wake up on March 9 and you just hear all his records and how up to date they sound.”

Diddy also gave mention to the Jackie Robinson Award he received earlier in the week. The Jackie Robinson Award is given out to those who “embody the humanitarian ideals of Jackie Robinson and raises funds for the Jackie Robinson Foundation.”

“I got an award last night, the Jackie Robinson Award. Shout out to the Jackie Robinson, the whole association and Jackie Robinson scholars,” said Diddy. “Bill Cosby was there, Russell [Simmons], L.A. [Reid]. It was pretty big. Ms. Wallace was there and that was a big deal to see her and my mom’s it was a beautiful thing.”

Diddy’s co-hosting stint didn’t pass without a few comments on former Two And A Half Men star turned “winner” Charlie Sheen.

“I think to fire someone they have to do really a lot. If he wants to party 72 hours, if he wants to smoke crack, do whatever he wants to do…I don’t think he’s crazy though," Diddy revealed. "I honestly don’t think he’s crazy. I think he’s just being so brutally honest.”

    Diddy shouldn't speak on somebody he doesn't know, cause an actor can be on all the drugs he wants, but when the camera is on, not miss a mark. What he does on his time is his business. How many drugs did him and Biggie do back in the Bad Boy heyday? Probably enough to make Charlie Sheen look like a beginner.

      Are you sure you want to hear any unreleased material by Biggie? that duets cd was terrible in my opinion except for a few gems. As anybody with half a brain knows... If there was unreleased material diddy would have released it long ago, after all he still makes money speaking on his dead "friend" right?
