We've talked about this before (although, not for more than a year now), but Killer Mike was asked about the rumors about him going to Bad Boy in a interview and this is what he said:

There were rumors that you were going to Bad Boy.

I was. I really wanted to. I never went back to ask Puff for the deal after I left Purple Ribbon. Puff really was the person who gave me a lot of confidence to do exactly what you've been hearing out of me on Pledge and what you're going to hear on 16. I felt like Puff had his own lane. The months that we f***** around and hung out, it really motivated me and inspired me to do what I do. It wasn't a lot, but it was enough. I had seen the success of Yung Joc and Boyz N Da Hood and I was excited to see that but I felt like he was handled badly.

I'm not going to name names because that's not right, but there were four people involved in the Puffy situation. It was me, my manager and two heads of the label. Puff was lied to and he wasn't handled honestly. I didn't have the control to say what was happening. I did tell Puff if he was going to make an aggressive move, he had to do it now. He didn't do it because nobody wants to ruin relationships. I felt like he was dragged around because people were arguing over $70-80,000. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I couldn't put myself back in a situation where I look dishonorable. That's why I'm not on Bad Boy.

Puff, I'm sorry for that. I'm sorry you got d***** around. I'm sorry you got bulls******.

Take it for what it's worth, obviously. Hard to get a handle on what he's talking about, exactly.
