We hoped, prayed and believed that Janelle Monae signing with Diddy's Bad Boy Records was a rumor. A hoax. A gotcha-gotcha. But no such luck. In the following video Diddy says "She's what the game needs, she's different for Bad Boy, and it's time for us to evolve too." Right. Now it's time. Further insights: In her interview with Gakcity, Janelle mentions "freedom", "imagination" and "art", things that seem awfully counterintuitive to the Bad Boy of recent years. So it is with a heavy heart that we accept this as a reality, go back to running our business and simultaneously pray that Janelle's freedom, imagination and art are not compromised with cameos by Yung Joc and Danity Kane.
Go grab her independent releases before
Diddy snatches them off the shelves they become collector's items. Take me higher Lord!
