Hitmaka Says Diddy Denied Conway A Notorious B.I.G Sample, Only To Clear It For King Combs

It seems like every day there is a new story about Diddy that makes him look worse and worse. Hitmaka recently accused the Bad Boy founder of denying Conway The Machine a Notorious B.I.G sample, only to clear it for his son King Combs later on.

The artist formerly known as Yung Berg told the story to Superstar Jay during an interview on Shade 45. It began with him discussing producing “Naughty” for Boosie Badazz, only for Puff to get his hands on it and give it to his son.

“No disrespect to Christian [Combs] because we got a bunch of other records that went crazy too [but] I love Boosie’s version more,” the Chicago producer said. “Puff called Craig Kallman [CEO of Atlantic Records] and was like, ‘No, I need that record.’ And Craig calls me like, ‘What did you do to Diddy?!”

Superstar Jay continued the conversation by bringing up Conway The Machine’s unreleased track “Can’t You Be,” where Hitmaka sampled Total and Notorious B.I.G.’s legendary 1995 song “Can’t You See.” For Hitmaka, it was just par for the course when it came to working with Diddy.

“Puff will do do that, though,” he said. “The Conway situation, I ended sampling a Diddy song and he wouldn’t clear the record for us. He wouldn’t clear the record for nobody except his son. That’s why Christian Combs got that record, too.”

This story comes just a few weeks after Hitmaka revealed Diddy had been interfering in his career for several years. He joined The Joe Budden Podcast in late February and revealed that the mogul went from wanting him to provide beats for The Love Album: Off The Grid to contacting his collaborators to try and makeshift his sound without his actual involvement. Years prior, he allegedly signed Hit’s collaborator Rob Holladay and turned Holladay against him.
