Amid the growing legal issues circling Diddy, the media mogul is putting up a tough front, sharing the music video of his 1997 track “Victory,” which shows him escaping the clutches of law enforcement.

On Friday, Diddy hopped onto Instagram and shared the 6-minute long video with the caption, “Bad Boy For Life.” The video and the caption are certainly an audacious choice that reveals how the Bad Boys Records founder might feel about his current circumstances, given the video features scenes of Combs evading police who are hunting down the rapper.

The music video was directed by Marcus Nispel and is one of the most expensive visuals ever made. Nispel and Diddy used the video to pay homage to the 1987 film The Running Man—the video takes place in a futuristic city in 3002 AD with the mogul playing a character that's on the run. At one point, Diddy gets cornered on a rooftop and proceeds to jump off the building to avoid being taken into custody.

Dennis Hopper and Danny DeVito made cameo appearances in the video, along with socialites Tamara Beckwith and Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.

Diddy shared this post in the middle of numerous sexual assault, trafficking, and other allegations he’s currently battling. The Department of Homeland Security recently conducted a raid on Diddy’s homes in Los Angeles and Miami while catching up to him at an airport in Miami. 

Diddy hasn't been taken into custody or charged with anything yet. Diddy's friend and collaborator Stevie J said Homeland Security used excessive force to ransack Diddy’s home. Earlier this week, the 54-year-old was seen riding bikes in Miami with Stevie J and taking pictures with fans
