Looks like Diddy is trying to get in touch with former Bad Boy rapper Loon following his recent release from prison in a very unexpected way.
On Thursday, The Shade Room shared a post about Loon’s release, which Diddy commented on.
“God is great. Welcome home. Get at me king. Love,” he wrote.

His comment has since received over 800 responses from other users, with many of them wondering why he is calling on Loon to reach out to him, and why he’s using a Shade Room post to do so. Loon was granted a “compassionate release” from Coleman Low, a Federal Correctional Institution in Florida. He was then released from prison on July 26. (He was scheduled to be released in August 2021.)
Loon, who is 45, was released early due to his health. On June 2, filed an “instant compassionate release” motion. In that document, Loon stated concern about COVID-19, writing that he suffers from latent tuberculosis and has had battles with acute laryngopharyngitis, acute bronchitis, and bronchopneumonia.
In related news, Diddy is also facing backlash amid an Instagram post B5 member Bryan Breeding shared about not receiving any money from the group’s commercial albums. Both of B5’s albums, their self-titled debut and Don’t Talk, Just Listen, were released via Bad Boy.

15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY 15 years from today my life was changed forever. Releasing our first commercial self titled album “B5” on July 19th 2005. Looking back at it now is full of bitter sweet memories. Sharing my life with my 4 older brothers and cousin (Carnell) music was my pride, joy and passion. Only short lived though, after being exposed to the deep levels of politics and agendas quickly helped me realized that the music business is less about music and more about the “business”. Which was fine to overlook (at the age of 12) and stay focused on my craft, trying to protect my innocence for the love of music. BUT This is usually the beginning of exploits for snakes to come into the picture cleverly hiding behind contracts only in favor of the one(s) creating it. We made about 99.9% of all our income from live performances & merchandise and till this day I’ve never seen a PENNY from any of our B5 commercial albums. For years! We reach out to lawyers, advisors and even TV networks for a chance to help us or tell our story and no one ever touched it with a 10 foot pole. So here I AM! telling my story, my truth and not from a “woe is me” perspective but as an example for the next generation of young artists to WRITE and OWN your content! READ your contracts and create new sounds for the LOVE of music, as a expression of who YOU ARE! You dont need to compromise for the bagor the glamorized “Record Label Deal” we have enough artist like that and doing a great job at it . What I dream to see in the NOW-future is a world full of new beautiful music from authentic souls!
