Diddy Adds Baltimore MC Los To Bad Boy Roster
Diddy is pretty excited about his new Bad Boy Records roster, but the music mogul isn't done adding new talent to the storied label.
"It's time for a whole new generation; it's time for a whole new movement. So we got Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, Red Café, & Cassie,"
We're trying to put that young, youthful energy out in the air and do it the only way that Bad Boy can do it."
The Baltimore MC then signed to Bad Boy, through local label Bloc Incorporated around 2005 after he auditioned for Puff with a 10-minute freestyle. Bloc Incorporated would eventual disband and Los wound up losing his deal with Bad Boy in 2008 before he was able to drop any material.
Since 2008 Los has dropped a number of mixtapes. His latest, "The Crown Ain't Safe", was released in December and featured contributions from DMX and Twista.
Whether or not Los will get that #1 spot remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: He is on the right team. "It's definitely reinvention time; it's rebuilding time," Diddy told Sway of his new Bad Boy team. "When you've been doing it for as long as we've been doing it, we the last ones standing from when we were doing it. And that's not taking shots at nobody, that's just a fact."
