Los, one of the best indie artists in the game right now, has recently created a huge buzz for himself with the release of his “The Crown Ain’t Safe” mixtape. Add to this the fact that he just landed a deal with Diddy on Bad Boy, and I would say we have the next big thing on our hands. As exciting as this all may be, there is one small problem: this isn’t his first time on the Bad Boy label. In 2005 he joined the Bad Boy family, only to be dropped from the label in 2008. Everyone knows that Diddy has to the power to build you as the next best thing, but he also has a history of making bad decisions where it pertains to his artists. Should Los have gone back to Bad Boy?
It’s obvious that there is/was tension between Diddy and Los. Los
On the other hand, it looks like Diddy may have had a change of heart and may be trying to resurrect Bad Boy’s lifeline. He was quoted as saying “It’s time for a whole new generation; it’s time for a whole new movement. So we got Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, Red Cafe; we got Cassie. We also have a new artist named Los that we signed. It’s official. We’re trying to put that young, youthful energy out in the air and do it the only way that Bad Boy can do it.” Could it be that Diddy has found the error of his old ways?
Regardless of a label, Los is talented and smart (if you listen to any of his bars, then you would agree). Since we’re on the outside looking in, we may not see why Los went back. Shouldn’t we have enough trust in him to make the best decisions for his career? On the other hand, history has been known to repeat itself. If you fool me once, then it’s shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. I sure hope for Los’ sake that he remembers “the crown ain’t safe” for everyone, so tread carefully.
