“Get At Me King”: Diddy Reaches Out To Loon Through Shade Room Comment

Diddy has received a number of responses since making the comment.

Looks like Diddy is trying to get in touch with former Bad Boy rapper Loon following his recent release from prison in a very unexpected way.

On Thursday, The Shade Room shared a post about Loon’s release, which Diddy commented on.

“God is great. Welcome home. Get at me king. Love,” he wrote.

His comment has since received over 800 responses from other users, with many of them wondering why he is calling on Loon to reach out to him, and why he’s using a Shade Room post to do so. Loon was granted a “compassionate release” from Coleman Low, a Federal Correctional Institution in Florida. He was then released from prison on July 26. (He was scheduled to be released in August 2021.)

Loon, who is 45, was released early due to his health. On June 2, filed an “instant compassionate release” motion. In that document, Loon stated concern about COVID-19, writing that he suffers from latent tuberculosis and has had battles with acute laryngopharyngitis, acute bronchitis, and bronchopneumonia.

In related news, Diddy is also facing backlash amid an Instagram post B5 member Bryan Breeding shared about not receiving any money from the group’s commercial albums. Both of B5’s albums, their self-titled debut and Don’t Talk, Just Listen, were released via Bad Boy.
