Dawn Richard Reveals Diddy Has “Released” Her From Bad Boy

The sole member of now-defunct girl group Danity Kane has left the building of Bad Boy. Apparently handling the direction of the Diddy-Dirty Money project wasn’t enough to convince the hip-hop mogul to invest in Dawn Richard‘s solo career.
“Puff has been really great with being supportive of me starting a solo career,” she gracefully lies. “He’s agreed to let me go from Bad Boy.”
As we know, exiting from a contract is not a simple process–especially for recording artists signed to Bad Boy. Dawn says her split from Diddy was amicable, and she’s grateful.
She describes her venture as aggressive, raw and militant. Listen to her new track, “Change,” and download her mixtape, A Tell Tale Heart.
