Diddy’s Latest Signing Making Waves in His Hometown of Cleveland
Sean “Diddy” Combs’ latest signing sure knows how to make an impression. Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker) was arrested last Friday for instigating a flash mob in a local mall in Cleveland, Ohio through Twitter.
Kelly, a Cleveland local, sent out a Twitter post that read, "No one move til you hear (song) Cleveland start, once it starts run to whatever table I’m at and Lets bust a mid-mall crowd surf and RAGE HARD!!! I’ll bring the camera, and don’t move/talk till the song plays at 5pm in foodcourt on Friday night.”
Kelly was taken to jail during the event, which was caught on camera. The Baltimore Sun reports that the rapper and his crew were not booked into jail, but were instead issued citations. A video posted on YouTube by Kelly later says “[It was] the first appearance we've done in Ohio, like, you know, since we announced a major label deal and it was kind of a chance to show all the kids that we really care about them, and that we're still here, and we're still grounded, and we're gonna be Ohio boys and Cleveland boys until we're 6-feet under.”
Diddy seems proud of his new signing and his efforts to gain attention. The video is posted on Diddy’s website, Diddydirtymoney.com as well as his Twitter account @iamdiddy. More good things are coming for Sean Combs, according to BET.com, his son Justin was just offered a football scholarship to UCLA. BET says that he “had previously received offers from Virginia, West Virginia, Illinois and Iowa”.
