The “Look at Me Now” star talked to N.O.R.E. on “Drink Champs” about Diddy’s reluctance to sign him.
“The funniest part- a lot of people don’t really know this- but Diddy turned me down,” said Brown. N.O.R.E. was eager to talk about it, asking the Virginia native if he danced for Diddy, too. “If you danced, he definitely would’ve signed you,” joked N.O.R.E.
“It’s love now. That’s family, that’s my brother now,” explained Brown. “Im’a keep it 100. So I was like 12, at this time. This was before I linked to Def Jam. It was me and one of my production managers’ son named TJ; he’s my brother to this day. Me and him were like a group.”
“What was the name of y’all group?” asked N.O.R.E., to which Brown responded with “We didn’t have no name.”
“This is why he didn’t sign y’all,” said N.O.R.E. to everyone’s amusement.
