It’s understandable that Puffy would want to take the full recovery time so that he could put on a show as incredible as the one that went down in Brooklyn this past May. If you remember, the event lived up to the hype with appearances from Jay Z, Nas, Mary J. Blige, Faith Evans, Busta Rhymes, Ma$e, Lil’ Kim, 112, Total, the LOX, Carl Thomas, French Montana, Rick Ross, Usher, Mario Winans, Ty Dolla $ign, Black Rob, and Lil’ Cease.
This week is proving to be a rough one for Puff who reportedly split from his longtime girlfriend, Cassie, after a heated argument erupted between the pair resulting in the cops being called. The couple were together for about five years.
