According to TMZ, Diddy turned down a nine-figure deal so he could give the publishing to Ma$e, Faith Evans, The Lox, 112, The Notorious B.I.G.’s estate, and more. Diddy is also giving publishing to the writers.

Diddy was reportedly approached by people who wanted to buy the publishing rights, instead opting to empower artists in the hope the music business would follow him as an example.


On Thursday (Aug. 30), Dipset general and ‘It Is What It Is” host Cam’Ron tipped off the move with his It Is What It Is co-host and longtime friend Ma$e.

Cam wrote, “My n***a murder had to sit this one out. He just got his publishing back from Puff. Just finished the paper work for that yesterday. Congrats @rsvpmase while he getting his music back in order, I’m dumping my hard drive pause. The lost files vol 1. Sept 8.” 

After Ma$e claimed that his former boss and Bad Boy founder Diddy gave him a modest $20K for his publishing, the “Harlem World” slang spitter said he offered Diddy $2 million for his publishing back in 2020, but Mr. Combs refused his offer.
