The “Making The Band” star says his talents were “silenced” by Diddy and lamented that he has often thought of taking his own life.
Several memes and classic Hip Hop moments came from their season, including Dave Chappelle reimagining their plight for Chappelle’s Show skits.

“It’s these n*ggas like Puffy, he my main motherf*ckin’ reason why I really hate f*ckin’ life, dog. People don’t even understand.” He jas received an outpouring of support from the public. Watch Freddy P share his emotional story below.[via]
