Diddy talks "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" doc and lessons learned from East vs. West rap feud

  /  06.07.2017

With the upcoming release of his “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” documentary on Apple Music, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, Sean “Diddy” Combs stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss the origin of his famous mantra behind the film and the motivation behind it.

“I feel like I got God in me and it’s just shining,” he rejoiced about his sprightly energy.

This energy is what he also credits for the inspiration of the film. “I said to myself, ‘Somebody need to keep the cameras rolling on me because I think that my life and whatever’s gonna happen, it could be inspirational,’ so I started shooting the movie when I was 19,” he said.

To close, the conversation then touched on the infamous East Coast vs. West Coast feud and what it meant to bring out Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre for the L.A. stop of his Bad Boy Family Reunion tour last year. “You gotta understand, that was one of the biggest things to happen in our culture. Right now, we’re living in the results of the hip-hop culture. As crazy as it sounds, it was a East-West war over music. People were killing and getting killed, and we deal with that in the movie. It was something that was just so serious and so surreal and so unfortunate and so sad, but that’s something that we’ve had to deal with,” he explained.

“It’s not like that [anymore]. We were all scared — sometimes things in your life could get out of control. We never wanted to have problems with each other. We were all fans of each other and it was just something in that day and age that spun out of control. We’ve all been friends ever since,” Puff continued, regarding his friendship with Snoop Dogg and Dre. “It always should have been like that, but sometimes in life, there’s tragedies so people can learn from them, and this is God’s world. The greatest thing is he put us all back together.”

“Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” hits Apple Music on June 25.
