During a recent press trip to The Breakfast Club to promote his upcoming film Den of Thieves, 50 Cent spent some time going in on Diddy, saying the rapper had his "fruity" moments.

"When he says things," 50 told the Breakfast Club hosts, "he doesn't even know what he's saying is like, fruity. He says to Fabolous, ‘me and you, we need to party.’ What is you talking about? When people say that to me I get a little uncomfortable."

During Diddy's (or should we say Love's) own recent visit to The Breakfast Club, Diddy admitted that he's bad at the pause game. Around 18:14, Diddy says, "When they started playing the game, the pause game, I would definitely would say some 'oh my, wooooo, did he just say that?'" Envy did point out that the pause game, which many first heard about through Cam'ron and the Diplomats, originated in Harlem. "I know I'm bad at the game," Diddy said.

It's around 19:54 that Charlamagne mentions that 50 was giving Diddy grief about the Fab situation, and when Envy starts to ask about whatever friction might be there between 50 and Diddy, Diddy says, "I don't have no beef with Fif. He loves me. Ya'll can't see it? Ya'll can't see that he loves me? You really think that's hate? When you really break it down, you know he loves me."

When Envy said they are both passionate, and they are both the same, Diddy interjected to say "we are not the same. We are not cut from the same cloth."

After Angelya Yee asked if something happened down the line, Diddy reiterated, "He loves me. Sometimes, people that feel like they don't like you and they act like that, they really love you."

Diddy also shot down rumors of him giving the kid caught up in the H&M racist hoodie scandal a million-dollar modeling contract around 22:07, saying "ain't that much modeling in the world." Around 26:04, Envy brought up if it's possible for Diddy to buy the Panthers, to which Diddy said "the process has just started," and that more information would be available in a couple of weeks.

"It was never about me buying the Panthers," Diddy said. "It was always about we. It was always about 'we needed a team.' I jumped out there to make sure that they understood that they have to consider some black ownership right now, with 80 percent, 70 percent of the league being African American. It's just time. We don't own nothing, and if we don't own nothing, we don't have nothing." Diddy confirmed he put together an investment group, reiterating that they were just beginning the process.

Later, around 32 minutes in, Charlamagne brings up Mase's interview with Angie Martinez, where Mase stated that it was his pen that kept Bad Boy floating after The Notorious B.I.G. died. Diddy agreed with Mase's comments, saying they were "definitely true" and calling Mase's pen "his strength." He said the concern was just making sure the vibe of Mase being around Diddy and guys like The Lox was right, but credited the two of them both being from Harlem with helping ease their artistic relationship together.

Diddy goes into more, including what goes on on The Four. Check out the full 57-minute conversation up above.
