Back in 2005, Diddy made a major move regarding his Bad Boy South label. Diddy ended up partnering with Atlanta-based record label, Block Entertainment. The label was headed by Russell “Block” Spencer. Block Entertainment/Bad Boy Records first delivered the Boyz n da Hood group, including Young Jeezy, Gorilla Zoe, and Jody Breeze.
Bad Boy South flourished from 2005 through 2007, with hits from Gorilla Zoe and Yung Joc. But, when Block’s contract ended, he left Bad Boy South, causing a reorganization within Bad Boy Records. Potentially, Block Ent./Bad Boy South would have included Rick Ross, who was in negotiations, and also Lil Wayne.
Block explained his $15 million deal with Bad Boy/Atlantic and also discussed how he felt the Rick Ross feud with Young Jeezy would not get violent. With both rappers focused on their business, violence slows up business. Also, Block spoke on his relationship with Diddy, which is still strong and he cites himself as the plug between Rick Ross and Diddy.
