"As far as Puff is concerned, you understand, that's been a long time coming," he said. "Definitely been a long time coming. He had reached out to me twice while I was in the pen, but I just wasn't ready for it."
"Just as far as me growing and moving forward, like I said, there's certain things you just can't take with you," Shyne continued. "I felt how I felt, I said what I said. In retrospect, when you look at the way he handled it, he held it down, he wore it. He had nothing to say; always had good things to say. It was always, 'Yo, whatever Shyne need, we got him.' And, you know, when I was getting ready to get out, I had spoken to him and he let me know, 'Yo, listen, I got you. Whatever you need, you not by yourself.' But, again, I'm still in the yard, I got a ratchet in my waist, I'm still in that kill or be killed mentality. So, I wasn't necessarily ready for that, I ain't really know how to receive that."
Plot Your Escape is a free concert happening this evening in four locations. Free tickets are gone, but you'll be able to watch a live stream on their website. Here's the lineup:
Diddy and Mariah Carey will be performing at Gotham Hall in New York City.
Maroon 5 and Bareilles will be performing at Union Station in Chicago.
Mary J. Blige and Gavin DeGraw will be performing at Woldenberg Park in New Orleans.
Lil' Wayne and Cee Lo Green will be performing at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles.
It's all-star weekend for the National Basketball Association. As part of the festivities, tonight's Sprite Slam Dunk Contest was held in Orlando. One of the participants was Chase Budinger, who teamed up with Diddy and jumped over the Bad Boy CEO to complete a dunk. Watch the clip on NBA.com and view the backboard photo.
"[The Weinstein Company Chief Operating Officer] David Glasser, who happens to be the coach of my son's Little League team, said, 'We got to do something special,'" Diddy told Pilon. "He called me and said: 'I've got something special. It's not for business or for money. It's for art.' I saw it and it just blew me away. You think it's going to be about football, but it's about life. I just related to it in so many ways. Usually documentaries take 45 minutes to get started, but within five minutes of this one, I was hooked."
