Music mogul Diddy is feeling like Makaveli. The hip-hop veteran went online this week to share some super deep words from late rap icon Tupac Shakur.
Diddy Shares A Motivational 2Pac Clip
Puff Daddy went to Instagram this week with the must-see vintage clip. Diddy was motivated by the video featuring 2Pac talking about wanting to inspire and influence other people to make positive changes in the world by speaking pure truth.
“They use the ghetto for their pain, for their sorrow, their culture, for their music, for their happiness, for their movies. They talk about Boyz N The Hood. You know what I’m saying? … I want when they see me they know that everyday I’m breathing, it’s for us to go farther. Every time I speak, I want the truth to come out. Every time I speak, I want to shiver. I don’t want them to be like they know what I’m going to say because it’s polite, they know what I’m going to say. Even if I get in trouble, ain’t that what we’re supposed to do? I’m not saying I’m going to rule the world or change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world. That’s our job. It’s to spark someone else watching us. We might not be the ones but let’s not be selfish and because we’re not going to change the world, let’s not talk about how we should change it. I don’t know how to change it but I know if I keep talking about how dirty it is out here, somebody gonna clean it up.” -Diddy’s Instagram

Before You Go
Recently, Diddy gave rap superstar Drake a huge salute. The hip-hop heavyweight credited Drizzy’s hits for making him a Top 5 of all time music contender.
“There’s something i wanted to say to you. Very, very, important. Um, I been a study of music, science, art, mathematics, for years. The actual numbers and codes that go into it, and so when they talk about the top five, all those cats got a special code. Two or three years ago I didn’t know. But it’s clear, the work you put in, you’re in my official top five. My official top five. Y’all heard it. Hits, hits hits.” -Diddy’s Instagram
