  1. The nerve of some people it’s just amazing. Diddy can shout out to whomever he wants. And the world is full of amazing black women, so another shout out to you 🙂
    ( this is coming from a white woman who was taken in and raised by an amazing black woman )

  2. You all hate to see us (black women) get any type of respect or appreciation from OUR BLACK KINGS. You all can’t stand the fact that one of ours said a shout out to us first. Please, let us have our time instead of you all getting all of the attention. Now, that’s not to disrespect anyone but please, let us have this one. It’s not about ya’ll always and only.
