Diddy and Giggs teamed up in the spirit of charity to aid the Black British community in London on Tuesday (Nov. 7). The concert — which benefited Sickle Cell Society and Black Minds Matter — featured a bunch of appearances from the rappers, mainly Diddy, who brought out his once-prized Bad Boy signee Shyne for a quick performance of “Bonnie & Shyne” and “Bad Boyz.”
Clad in a black suit, Shyne strolled onto the stage alongside his former boss at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The last time Shyne and Diddy performed together was at the BET Awards in 2022. In a September Instagram post, Diddy gushed about Shyne’s success as a burgeoning politician. The artist was voted into Belize’s House of Representatives in 2020, and was re-elected as the leader of the United Democratic Party in 2022.
“Words can’t explain how proud I am of Shyne. It’s truly remarkable to see everything he’s gone through and to see him turn his life totally around and get on the path to making a positive impact on his country and his people,” he wrote at the time. “His re-election is a major victory for him, Hip-Hop globally, and the people of Belize. Next stop, PRIME MINISTER’S OFFICE! We’re not going to stop until my brother is the Prime Minister. I believe in you! I love you! I’m proud of you!”
As for Diddy, he’s continuing his success on the artist front following his newest offering, The Love Album: Off The Grid. In late October, he released the trailer for his upcoming film, Off the Grid, inspired by his R&B-infused album.
The trailer features Diddy and budding actress Eva Apio in a romantic whirlwind anchored by passion and drama. The chemistry between the two is entrancing as they share moments of vulnerability, endure a high-speed car chase with the cops and more.
“Working with Eva Apio was an incredible experience. Her talent and energy brought my vision to life,” Diddy said in a press release.
