Critics Shun Diddy’s ‘Stop The Violence’ Message, Saying He Made Hundreds Of Millions On Promoting Violent Hip Hop Records & Culture

| May 24, 2015 | 0 Comments

Sean “Diddy” Combs, who was emotionaly effected by the death of good friend Notorious B.I.G and recently Chinx Drugz spoke out about the violence in the hip hop community and asking the the African-American community to take a hard look at ourselves in curbing violence.

For the last couple of months we have experienced a lot of injustice and wrongdoings to a community. But there is a flip side. Yes #BLACKLIVESMATTER ! But no one will respect us if we as a people don't have any respect for our own black lives. We are committing genocide on ourselves. We are always looking for scapegoats . We as a people hurt ourselves more than anyone has ever hurt us. That makes no sense. We as a people including myself have to take accountability and do whatever we can do individually or together to stop the madness and realize that we are KINGS and QUEENS AND Must love ourselves and each other. I know I'm rambling a little bit. #BLACKLIVESMATTER SO AS A PEOPLE LETS PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH.!!! MAY GOD BLESS US ALL! Ii LOVE YOU!!!!!!

Following the fatal drive-by shooting of New York rapper Lionel “Chinx Drugz” Pickens on early Sunday morning (no suspects have been arrested, as the shooting is still under investigation), Diddy posted a message to 4.6 million followers. In it, the 45-year-old declares that in some instances, African Americans should take more accountability in ending the violence related to death of black men and women in America.

“For the last couple of months we have experienced a lot of injustice and wrongdoings to a community. But there is a flip side. Yes #BLACKLIVESMATTER !

Diddy’s words were not recieved with welcoming comments however:

“I’m confused.
“Niggas mad because I know that Cash Rules
Everything Around Me, two Glock 9’s
Any motherfucker whispering about mines
And I’m Crooklyn’s finest
You rewind this, Bad Boy’s behind this…” (Notorious B.I.G. “Who Shot Ya?”)
And now you call it “genocide”?
Uh, YEAH!!! And you got paid!”
