Is Diddy a genius?Barry Michael Cooper, acclaimed director of such films as Sugar Hill, Above the Rim and New Jack City, attempts to answer this question in a candid interview with the Bad Boy CEO where he discusses the making of Biggie’s acclaimed first album Ready to Die, among other things.
The conductor of the Last Train to Paris reveals a lot of intimate details including how he convinced Biggie to make party records, his chemistry with producer Easy Mo Bee and why he sampled “Juicy Fruit” for the B.I.G. classic “Juicy.” He even affirms that Big was actually getting oral sex on that album’s particular skit. Watch the interview from Sean John Combs: Once Upon A Time In America in three parts below.
“Kimora and Djimon had a secret “commitment ceremony” in Djimon’s hometown in Benin, Africa last summer. Yeah we knew she was rocking that big ass wedding ring for a reason. They snuck away to his home so that Kimora and his family could meet.
And while there, they had a full out commitment ceremony like only Kimora could have:
“Both Kimora and Djimon wore traditional dashikis. She went whole hog with the African theme − there were African drums, a traditional ceremony with dancers . . . they even had a hut!”
Apparently they opted for the commitment ceremony because Russell and Kimora were still legally married. No word on if this commitment is legally binding here in the states even now that the Simmons’ divorce is final.
Apparently Ming cried throughout the entire thing and Aoki slept through the whole thing. A source says they were “confused” about what was going on. I wonder how they’re going to act when this new baby of Kimora and Djimon’s hits the scene.
And by the way, Ming and Aoki are now calling Djimon daddy. Well, “Baba” to be exact–which is a cultural term meaning Father. So what does Russell have to say about all this?
