Jacob Katel of the Miami New Times spoke with Jorge Marquez. He manages Xplicit, who is featured on Diddy's new track, "Diddy Bop." In the interview, he shared that they didn't expect Diddy to leave Xplicit on the track, after sending over the reference vocals.

Our job is to find out what artists or labels are in need of music. Bad Boy actually contacted us with news that Diddy wanted a street/club banger. We contacted our producers and Xplicit banged out "Diddy Bop." We presented the song to Diddy's A&R and the rest is history. Since the song was just a reference we didn't expect them to keep Xplicit on the hook, but Diddy liked his sound so much he decided to keep him on the track.
