In his Vibe Magazine cover story, according to HipHopDX, Diddy spoke on claims that he had mistreated artists on the Bad Boy roster.

"There's an off perception that needs to be addressed about me that I have ever robbed somebody or mistreated somebody," he said. "Or tried to be ruthless or whatever in this game. Like, all this year I've heard people say, 'Where's Carl Thomas, where's Black Rob, where's G. Dep? Where are these artists?' And for some reason they go ahead and equate that, 'cause those artists aren't with me, that I've done something wrong or malicious or conniving. It's something that I do have a problem with because they don't have no proof that I've ever done nothing like that."

"It's a misconception. Especially someone who's been brought up like me. I've been brought up to work hard for mine and never take from nobody. And to always try and help people. But people don't understand this game that we're in. You have a short life expectancy. It's rare to be a me, to be a Jay-Z, an LL, a Nas. That s*** is a rarity. That's not even one percent of the rappers. If you look at any artists that were on Ruff Ryders, where they at? If you look at any artist that was on Def Jam at the time we started, where they at? If you look at any artist that was on Roc-A-Fella, Jive, where they at? It's not like anything was wrong with them. It's just that you have a four, five-year average in this game. That's just something I wanted to address."

This is something I've been saying for a long time. This isn't a Bad Boy thing or a Diddy thing, it's a music industry thing. Diddy is just an easy target because he is a visible CEO that is a successful artist.
