Polo Grounds Music signed former Crime Mob member Diamond to a joint management deal with Atlanta-based Cookies and Milk on her own to do bad business.
Princess spoke on the Crime Mob situation announcing at the Dirty Awards that she was no longer a member of the group. She also said the decision to have her leave Crime Mob was not her own. Diamond says “The whole idea was brought to my attention by the group, [But] I feel like it’s the best decision to make because now I’m able to take [advantage] of the choices and opportunities that was presented in front of me the whole time while I was in the group, and not feel like I’m being disloyal to the group or being held back.”
The problems began when a recording project would have found Crime Mob’s leading ladies releasing an album without the rest of the group. “Everybody says that me and Diamond are who everybody knows out the group,” Princess said. “So Warner Brothers decided that me and her would do an album together. With the album, came a reality show. And all of this was already on the table, they was ready to cut the check. But at that time, me and her wasn’t seeing eye to eye, and we really weren’t speaking to each other. But at the end of the day, I’m a business person, so I’m gonna do whatever needs to be done to handle the business and make sure it gets handled correctly. But we’re not the same people, so she saw it a little different than I saw it.”
Diamond also said that one of the reasons she passed on the opportunity to record an album with Princess is that the duo’s new contract would have left the remaining members of the group, M.I.G. and Cyco Blac, without a deal.
Princess refuted Diamond’s explanation.
