Buckwild talks about Diddy

Here’s a part of Buckwilds interview from AllHipHop.com.

AllHipHop.com has a great interview with Buckwild where he talks about “I Got a Story to Tell” (Biggie track that he produced), praises Diddy’s production talents and clears the air about the supposed lawsuit against Diddy about production royalties:

AllHipHop.com: What about “I Gotta Story to Tell” by Notorious B.I.G off of Life After Death?

Buckwild: Biggie had three beats to choose from. One of them was one that The Lox wanted also. That record ended up having sample clearance issues, and never came out. Then I come to find out that he chose the one to “I Got a Story to Tell.” Biggie was a dude that thinks about his lyrics first, no matter what. With the concept and everything he was like, “Cool, I could rock with that.” ...

AllHipHop.com: I want to build on that and ask you about your opinion of Puffy. What do you think about him as a producer?

Buckwild: PD, Mister Producer extrodinaire. He showed me and a lot of other dudes what a producer really is. He showed the part of production that most dudes never really knew, like, when you're coming in and not even touching the drum machine. You're shooting ideas like, “Yo, this needs to be like this,” and “No, you gotta do this like this.” He showed that part of production that dudes never really knew: You thought just because you made beats, you're the producer? You're not.

AllHipHop.com: It came out in the news recently that you and several other artists and producers have a lawsuit against him for royalties owed.

Buckwild: Alright. Let's set this straight: There's no lawsuit that's out against Puff.

AllHipHop.com: Okay, what is it?

Buckwild: The only things that's going on is that dudes haven't been paid on a few albums. So, Warner Brothers is getting their books updated so everyone can get paid. I think what probably happened was, in the time that he left Arista, a lot of people weren't getting their statements from that point on. [For me], it's my part of Life After Death, part of Life Story and any albums that came out after that. It's residuals. It's just a matter of Warner Brothers getting everything updated so everyone can get paid what they're supposed to. Knowing Warner Brothers, it should be finished in the next few months.
