Critical Space

Always attuned to ambiguity, Diddy interrupts his ad space for some self-criticism, sort of like a character in fiction reflecting on his actions, adding depth and complexity. "Are they right? Am I an alcoholic/womanizer/bad writer?"

We like to think of his music the same way. You know, you take "hits from the 80s/ and make it sounds so crazy." This recontextualization - or revisionary composition - makes the listener rethink what he had considered familiar. It's like deja vu...

Anyway, Diddy doesn't take himself for granted, as evidenced by his generous provision of "critical space."
