For years, Diddy’s legendary parties have been the stuff of Hip-Hop folklore, drawing in crowds from all corners of the industry. However, recent controversies surrounding the Bad Boy founder have shed a different light on these once-celebrated events. Amidst the swirling allegations and legal battles, Uncle Luke has stepped forward to share his perspective on navigating Diddy’s soirées.

In a candid conversation on the We In Miami podcast, the 2 Live Crew legend confessed to a common practice whenever he attended Diddy’s gatherings: leaving early.

“I would go to the party and leave early,” Luke revealed. “I’m sorry. I don’t know what goes on after hours but I wasn’t trying to find out. I know my place.”

His cryptic statement hinted at an atmosphere or activities that didn’t align with his sensibilities, though he chose not to delve into specifics.

Luke also recounted a moment when he turned down an offer from Diddy to appear in French Montana’s music video for “Pop That.” The track had sampled Luke’s own hit, “I Wanna Rock,” without his consent. Despite the opportunity for exposure, Luke declined, citing that it simply wasn’t his vibe.

But Luke isn’t the only one to express discomfort with Diddy’s party scene. Fellow rapper 50 Cent has also been vocal about his aversion to these gatherings. In a memorable moment from one of his concerts, 50 Cent humorously explained why he avoids “Puffy parties.”

“That n-gga hug you from the front and the back at the same time? F**k you talkin’ ’bout?” he quipped. “I mean, if you into that, you into that. I’m fine with it. I’m just saying this ain’t my motherf**kin’ kind of party. I’m uncomfortable.”

The scrutiny surrounding Diddy’s parties intensified with allegations of sexual misconduct and involvement in illicit activities. Homeland Security’s recent raids on his Los Angeles and Miami residences as part of a sex trafficking investigation further fueled the controversy. Among the accusations are claims of soliciting underage prostitutes, sexual assault, and even gang rape.

As the legal battles rage on, Diddy finds himself at the center of a storm of allegations and speculation. While some continue to attend his events, others, like Uncle Luke and 50 Cent, opt for an early exit, preferring to steer clear of the tumultuous environment surrounding the Bad Boy mogul. As the saga unfolds, questions linger about the true nature of Diddy’s parties and the extent of his involvement in the scandals that have rocked the industry.
