If you're anything like us, you've been wondering who penned Diddy's verse on Waka Flocka Flame's "O Let's Do It Remix." Well, a source in Diddy's camp revealed to VIBE Confidential that Diddy's 16 was actually written by two ghostwriters.
According to the source, rapper Aasim wrote the first four bars ("I got my billions up/fuckin' with them white folks/Now I don't give a fuck/'cause I'm richer than them white folks/Lamborghini truck/y'all ain't even seen it yet/Bought me Teterboro just so I could Diddy Bop and land my jet"). No surprise there, as Aasim has been Diddy's number one rhyme writer for years.
The second collaborator behind the next 12 bars, the source said, is none other than Rick Ross: "Pimpin' in my convo/bitches in my combo/pictures of Christopher on my wall up in my condo." And this line: "I don't fuck with lame hoes/All I touch is J. Los/All I drink is my shit/Ciroc by the case load."

Pro decided that he wanted to become a musician after becoming very fond of his older sisters poetry readings. He went from practicing in his room every night to having daily freestyle battles with his classmates until pure confidence was obtained.
Now a sophomore at the University of Memphis, Pro is pursuing a bachelors degree in Music Business. Not only does Pro plan on taking over the rap world, he plans on doing it with a boss-like mindset. Educating himself on the music business, he is working on opening his own publishing company which will be named Mockingbird Musik. Three mixtapes have already been released in the past four years, but Pro claims that his upcoming Spring release, To Kill a Mockingbird, will be the best yet.
