that, during an appearance in Miami (video below), Diddy announced that DJ Prostyle had been signed to Bad Boy Management as part of a new "DJ management division," of which Prostyle represents the first signing.
This marks the second confirmed signing to Bad Boy Management, following Rick Ross, which was officially announced last month

In an interview with AllHipHop.com
, Jadakiss revealed that he was about to get on a track from Cassie and that he's being sponsored by Ciroc. He also talked about the Bad Boy situation and advice that he received from Biggie.
AllHipHop.com: Recently you were on a radio station saying how you can now appreciate getting "Diddy Bopped" by Puffy back in the day. Explain that.
Jadakiss: A lot of people think itís a lot of bitterness with the whole Bad Boy situation. We [The LOX] were young kids that were anxious to get in the game. In return we signed some contracts that weren't beneficial to us but we canít have a gripe with Puff Daddy for the rest of our lives because it was business. It was our responsibility to know that we signed a wrong contract. He probably respects us even more for even finding out [we had a bad contract]. Thatís how the Ciroc endorsement deal is in place. You learn as you grow.
"Diddy Bopped?" Wow. Nice question, Ms. Rhone.
Anyway, check out the full interview for the rest.

Joy Sewing of The Houston Chronicle has a great interview
with Derek Luke. Probably the best part isn't in the text version, but in the extra audio clips featured on the lower left hand of the site.
In one, Luke shares what Diddy told him about the Bad Boy company name and how it came about. "It was inspired by this vision he had about these school children in New York, crossing the street," Luke said. "It was one little kid pointing his finger and looking at something totally different, start going opposite of where the other kids were going. They called him a "bad boy" and he says, that's where I got the vision for Bad Boy 'cause it was the kid, he was a bad boy, but he was really pointing somewhere else 'cause he was trying to go against the grain." In the very next clip, he also has an interesting story about Diddy having to leave the set because of the film hitting him a little too hard.
David Gelles of the Miami Herald reports
on the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship's National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge, where Dia Simms served as a judge.
Simms, the general manager of Bad Boy's Blue Flame Marketing & Advertising division, is quoted in the piece.
Simms said the judges used tough standards to evaluate the students. ''We were asked to look at them as if we were angel investors,'' she said. ``We were looking at what was scalable, and what we could walk away with and start a viable business.''
Among the finalists, Jessica stood out. ''The difference was her numbers,'' said Simms. ``They seemed very realistic. Her delivery and marketing plan and material costs were very close to what I would have guesstimated. She seemed like she could walk away and hand her plan to someone and they could execute it.''
