It's no secret that Diddy loves New York. It's the city that raised him and where he built his Bad Boy Records empire. Now the rap mogul has tattooed his hometown on his arm.

The 43-year-old Harlem native showed off his giant "New York" ink on his Instagram page. Actually, it's the logo of New York magazine tattooed n his left forearm.

Now you would think the publication would call their attorneys to start filing a copyright-infringement lawsuit against Diddy, but no, the magazine tweeted their approval of the artwork. "We're flattered," they wrote on his timeline.

Interestingly, while Diddy was getting tatted up, he was also getting a haircut from his barber. "Getttin a Tat and Cut at the same damn time!! These n----s can't multitask...ha!" he wrote.

Now that's stunting for real. Take that, take that, take that.


Meanwhile, Diddy, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte and others saluted the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige at VIBE's inaugural Impact Awards in Los Angeles Friday (Feb. 8). Diddy who mentored MJB and produced her classic debut album, 'What's the 411,' is proud of the 42-year-old songbird's two-decade music career. "She's a musical soulmate, she's my sister, she's one of my best friends in the world," he said. "Mary is our queen… there is no one to come after her."
