Recently, Diddy has been working with Rick Ross. When they first began recording together, Diddy compared the rapper to The Notorious B.I.G. By many, he is hailed as one of the best rappers ever, while Rick Ross is seen as average. But, the compliment coming from such a high place has led people to think twice about Rick Ross.
As Rick Ross works more with Diddy, he has started working more with the team of Bad Boy Records. Not only has Ross accepted the comparisons, but other members of the team agree with Diddy. While Diddy says that he does not have anything planned for Rick Ross, he said that he can sense something in him that was in B.I.G. while he lived.
Diddy said that D-Roc, one of the Hitmen, also said that there are a lot of similarities, lyrically, between the two rappers. D-Roc worked closer than Diddy with The Notorious B.I.G. So, a statement coming from him like that means a whole lot more. A lot of Rick Ross’ critics feel that he has been trying to steal Biggie’s style. But, the people who worked closest to him feel that it is coming natural, as some sort of inheritance.
Even as some people have questioned Diddy, he is strongly standing by his comparisons of Rick Ross to The Notorious B.I.G. Despite their strong working relationship, Diddy will not be working on Ross’ upcoming album, Teflon Don.
