In a recent interview with MTV, Talib Kweli shared an interesting Hip Hop story about an intense conversation between Mos Def and Diddy. Talib and Mos Def performed at a Lyricist Lounge event back in '97, and Diddy had a problem with the Black Star song "Children's Story."
"It was a Lyricist Lounge event that night, and I think The Notorious B.I.G. had just passed away a couple of weeks before," said Talib. "We were working on the Black Star album and Yasiin jumped up and did a verse for 'Children's Story' and Diddy was in the house...Diddy came through and he came and wanted to talk to me and Mos about how he felt a way about the record, about what Mos was saying onstage. Mos told him, 'It wasn't directed at you personally. It's directed at everything that's going on in the business.' That was one of the illest conversations that I ever seen."
