King Los neither confirmed nor denied the reports, but said that he spoke with Diddy about his relationship with Bad Boy last week.
“I went to his crib and we talked,” King Los says on Sway in the Morning. “We sat poolside and we just chopped it up. I told him, ’There’s a lot of miscommunication when you don’t communicate.’ I said, ‘I just gotta be more vocal about things and he was just like, ‘Yeah.’ Basically, I still have the whole entire Puff engine, his influence or whatever I need, if I come to him with a plan. I can do whatever I want, but I just had to let him know, ‘I gotta get out here and get this ball rolling.’ I gotta do it because I’m just like a special person. For me, it ain’t on nobody. If I sit on the label for five years, I did that. I don’t look at it how people look at it. You’re a man. You’ve got to do what you got to do in this world. I came from nothing, so I understand that and I know that it takes 10 times nothing to make something. So, I’m not going to get to this level and just be stagnant or anything. I just got to keep it movin’ in a way that satisfies me because when things don’t feel right in my heart, I can’t perform them.”
Though he did not specifically address leaving Bad Boy, King Los did retweet other people discussing the news.

King Los, who is slated to release his Zero Gravity II mixtape March 24, says that his relationship with Diddy is one of teacher-mentor.
“He’s in a mentoring kind of thing when you’re around him, just for you to soak up as much game, as much knowledge and wisdom as you can,” King Los says. “You’re less talkative and more trying to receive the things.”
