Earlier this week, it was announced that Diddy was giving publishing rights back to many of the artists on his Bad Boys label. The LOX, Ma$e, Faith Evans, 112, and the estate of The Notorious B.I.G. are all expected to have the publishing rights to their music returned to them. The announcement was foreshadowed by Ma$e’s podcast co-host Cam’ron who broke the news on Instagram that Ma$e would be getting his rights back. Mark Curry, is calling the move an empty gesture. He posted a video to Instagram reacting to the move. In the video, he claims that Diddy held onto the rights for as long as they had value and then signed them over after. “That’s disrespectful. I said why don’t you just keep it and pay me? I don’t want the publishing; I want the money,” he said in the video. He elaborated in the caption. “Diddy gave the publishing back.:. So what.. it has no value… I want him to give me a million cash and then I can plan the rest of my life out well,” it reads.
