Royce Da 5’9 Says Diddy Made Him A Better Writer

Media Take Out Staff |

Royce Da 5’9 said he was once mad at being invited to record at Diddy’s studio and not getting paid…but now he is grateful.

“I went out there when Puff was working on the Press Play album,” said Royce. “This n-gga had me in a midi room just writing verses over and over again while he was in the luxurious A-room with all the celebrities and sh-t. I was just like, ‘Man, this n-gga ain’t pay me, this n-gga grimy!'”

Royce says looking back he appreciates Diddy.

“About 10 years later, after I was a little bit wiser, I looked at him in retrospect and I had to hit him on the DM to tell him how much I appreciate him and how much I took from that. It was because of that process that I started to re-write in my own creative process. I was like, ‘I don’t re-write my own shit like this, why don’t I approach this shit with this same kind of intensity?’ I pulled that from it and just the opportunity, sometimes we take for granted the opportunity.”
