There’s an interesting article in Vibe Magazine [the one with Nicki Minaj on the cover] called ‘The Mystery of Puff’s Daddy’ that investigates the death of Diddy’s father, Melvin Combs.

Among other things, the article reveals Diddy’s daddy wasn’t exactly the Harlem kingpin Diddy believes he was. By all accounts Melvin was a baller, but he was no Frank Lucas or Nicki Barnes.

And if this one old hustler is to be believed, Melvin Combs was killed by a member of his own crew who believed Melvin had snitched on him. And coincidentally, the hustler recalls that while Diddy’s mother Janice was Melvin’s wife and main woman, he also had a ride or die red bone on the side named Cassandra [Cassie].
