Diddy Faces Off with Kanye on the Interwebs

Diddy_0Well, not officially. But I've noticed that there seems to be some hint of competition between the two artists and their approaches to social media tools.

You may or may not be familiar with Kanye West's blog. Unfortunately, it lately seems to be mainly a repository for art and fashion stuff that Kanye finds interesting, but for awhile he was posting his thoughts regularly. But some of my favorite posts from him include:

I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS... THIS IS NOT ME!!!!!

WHO'S WINNING, ME OR THE MEDIA?

I wanna apologize 2 Jared Leto for fronting on him. I read my quote on Perez and was like damn that was wack of me. I've actually posted his vids on my blog that had incredible cinematography. He actually covered one of my songs. Like they said on Anchorman... You eat shit Ron Burgandy! Yes, I eat shit for that one.

THIS IS SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!!!!!!! AMAZIIIIIIIIIIING SHIT!!!!!!... I THINK I'M GOING TO START A NEW SECTION CALLED AMAZING SHIT BECAUSE OF THIS!!!

OH WOW THIS IS FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

SUPER COOL!!!! NOTHING BEATS LEGOS, NOTHING!!!

There's a distinctive style to Kanye's blogging, namely a liberal use of caps lock and excessive punctuation. And a general hyperactivity and nonsensical excitement that I wish we could bottle.

But Diddy is edging in on Kanye's territory on the internet. He has a Twitter account that he's REALLY into. At the time of this writing, Diddy had already updated nearly 20 times to let us know that, "The diddy. spiritual  Fast for focus HAS BEGUN!!!!! Let's go" and "If you had 1 wish what would it be???????" and also, "oh shit!! don't look now.. but i'm approaching 100,000 p-twitty family members.. lets go people!!!"

Diddy also has a YouTube channel called P.TWITTYTV where he posts short video updates that are just a little too long for Twitter. His first vlog details the mission for the channel: a behind-the-scenes peek at his work in the studio and a baffling moment where he stares at the camera and shouts, out of nowhere, "LIFE COULD BE WORSE! LIFE COULD BE WORSE! IT COULD BE WORSE! THINK ABOUT IT!" Uh, worse than what exactly, Diddy? Worse than being rich as hell and getting to hang out in the studio and drink with your friends? Yeah, I guess it could be worse. In fact...*looks around*...it is. Oh, and the drink that they make, the OG Diddy, made of his own Ciroc Vodka, lemonade, and grape juice, sounds oddly appealing. I might start drinking that on the weekend in close proximity to the internet, which will be fun for everyone involved.

But what I noticed off the bat was that Diddy seemed to also employ excessive punctuation and I would not put it past Kanye to get REALLY pissed about that...copyrighted excitement infringement, maybe? If I could see a blogger-level internet drama between those two I would be extremely pleased.

In the meantime, I'm going to go pick a fight with Diddy about our shared moniker.

P.Twitty? That just made me LOL, seriously.

Sweetney

those Kanye quotes are making me snort-laff. ahhh, good times.

Joie at Canned Laughter

OK I'll confess. I read Puff the Magic Diddy's tweets. I've made him my official life coach. Right now I'm actualizing being surrounded my a posse of dishy man-hos and sucking down overpriced martinis. If I can dream it, I can be it!

BaltimoreGal

Put the smack-down on his ass! You were there first!

Marmite Breath

My favourite quote from Kanye is "Why can't you just let me be great?"

BWAHahahahahah. He's such a douchebag, but I love his stupid blog posts.

Holmes

It would be so awesome if hip-hop beefs could be played out via blogs and twitter, but still try to sound hardcore. Because nobody sounds hardcore on a blog or in a tweet.
