Diddy Addresses East Coast-West Coast War & Aftermath [VIDEO]
The doc focuses on last year’s Bad Boy reunion tour. One of the big moments of that endeavor was the tour’s LA stop, which included Diddy and Bad Boy’s former rivals Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg joining them on the stage.
Puff did Jimmy Kimmel last night and spoke on that moment.
“You gotta understand that was one of the biggest things to happen in our culture. Right now, we’re living in the results of the hip-hop culture. So, as crazy as it sounds, there was an East/West war over music, and people were killing and getting killed. And we deal with that in the movie, and it was something that was just so surreal and so serious, and so unfortunate and so sad, but that’s something that we’ve had to deal with,” Diddy explained.
“It’s not like that [anymore]. We were all scared,” Puff continued. “Sometimes things in your life could just get out of control, but we never wanted to have problems with each other. We were all fans of each other. And it was just something in that day and age that spun out of control. We’ve all been friends ever since. Snoop Dogg is one of my best friends. Dre is one of my best friends. It always should have been like that, but sometimes in life, there are tragedies so people can learn from them. This is God’s world, but the greatest thing is that he put us all back together.”
