“I was getting so loose I fell lol but really tho I bust my ass lol, #finnaGetLoose #AppleMusic Puff Daddy & The Family feat @pharrell.”
During the performance there was a tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G., who was honored with a video montage set to the rap legend’s music.
Diddy has been in the news this week for other events besides the BET Awards. The singer was arrested and charged with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making a terrorist threat and one count of battery. He was released from the campus jail after posting $50,000 bail.
