One of Bad Boy’s most talented rappers, King Los, is no longer with the label.
Los made this revelation yesterday while appearing on Sway in the Morning. The rapper claims there’s no beef with the label’s owner Diddy, but he had to do something to get the “ball rolling” with his career:
“I can do whatever I want, but I just had to let him know, ‘I gotta get out here and get this ball rolling.’ I gotta do it because I’m just like a special person. For me, it ain’t on nobody. If I sit on the label for five years, I did that. I don’t look at it how people look at it. You’re a man. You’ve got to do what you got to do in this world. I came from nothing, so I understand that and I know that it takes 10 times nothing to make something. So, I’m not going to get to this level and just be stagnant or anything. I just got to keep it movin’ in a way that satisfies me because when things don’t feel right in my heart, I can’t perform them.”
Los signed with Diddy back in 2012. It was his second stint with the label. He signed with Diddy back in 2005, and that deal would eventually turn south.
There are some more interesting tidbits to this story.
On Rick Ross’ latest album, Mastermind, Diddy makes an appearance on “Nobody,” which samples Notorious B.I.G.’s “You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You).” On the track, Diddy has an epic rant. Turns out that wasn’t just an act. That was a real rant, directed towards a real person.
Ross revealed this while appearing on RapFixLive a couple of weeks ago, but he wouldn’t say to whom the rant was directed.
Was it King Los? When Sway asked Los this directly on RapFixLive, the Baltimore rapper said:
“I love the mystique of this. I’ma let this play out a little bit, but boy, your intuitive skills, man.”
Los would go on to say “I had something to do with it,” but he wouldn’t say any more.
Los might have left Diddy, but the roll still keeps on rolling for the rapper. His upcoming mixtape Zero Gravity II is expected to drop on March 24th.
