*(Via Urban Hollywood 411) – Mase is accusing Sean “Diddy” Combs of shady business practices.
During a speech at a pre-Grammys gala hosted by music executive Clive Davis last weekend, Diddy called out the Recording Academy for failing to give hip-hop and R&B proper respect.
“Truth be told, hip-hop has never been respected by the Grammys. Black music has never been respected by the Grammys to the point that it should be,” he said.
Diddy isn’t the only artist to question the Recording Academy’s diversity record. But Mase says Diddy is one to talk, considering he doesn’t respect his own artists.
On Friday, Mase posted a photo on Instagram of a tweet from rapper Meek Mill about “young black kids in slave contracts in the music business.”
In the caption, Mase unloaded on Diddy, saying the mogul “robbed” him of music royalties.
“@diddy I heard your #Grammy speech about how u are now for the artist and about how the artist must take back control. So I will be the first to take that initiative,” he began. “Also, before we ask of other ethnicities to do us right we should do us as black people better.”
Mase also said he recently tried to buy back his publishing rights for $2 million, but Diddy declined.
