Diddy: I'm the rap ringleader

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has compared his talents to that of circus legend P.T. Barnum – branding himself the “ringleader” of the hip-hop genre. The star insists he isn’t out to compete with other rappers, but believes his success is due to his ability “to get people grooving”.

He says, “I’m not going to say that, compared to everyone else, I’m the best. I see myself more as P.T. Barnum. I’m the ringleader of the circus – the producer, the entertainer, the dancer, the vibe motivator.

“I don’t really compete with the other guys who say, ‘I’m going to lyrically massacre you.’ I just like to get people moving and grooving.

“But look at my career in black and white. It’s undisputable. Look on Billboard at the three pages of hits I’ve had. I’m not braggadocious – it’s just important that you state the facts when you talking about someone, and what they mean, and who they are.”
