Talib Kweli, one half of Black Star, tells MTV the story about the time Diddy confronted Mos Def about Black Star lyrics.
“I think B.I.G had just passed away a couple weeks before. We were working on the Black Star album. Yasiin jumped up and did a verse from “Children’s Story” and Diddy was in the house. Now what people don’t understand is that first of all, I used to work for him handing out flyers to Daddy’s House parties, all that back in the day. But those early early Lyricist Lounges, before he was Puff Daddy, he was all of them. He would bring B.I.G to the Lyricist Lounge, you know, Craig Mack. He was an artist that came through the same channels that we came through.”
