Sean “Diddy/Brother Love” Combs sparked reactions on Friday when he posted his 1998 “Victory” music video on Instagram with the caption “Bad Boys For Life.” 

The 54-year-old mogul’s post seemed cryptic, as the video starring him invading authorities was shared after federal agents raided his properties on March 26. Bad Boy For Life is a common catchphrase by the mogul, paying homage to his record label. 

“Bad Boy For Life” is also the hit song and music video Diddy released three months after being acquitted of gun and bribery charges in June 2001. The song marked the introduction of P. Diddy after his name change from Puff Daddy. 

From his debut album, No Way Out, “Victory” is the most expensive music video ever made at $2.7 million. The music video was partially inspired by the 1987 film Running Man, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. “Victory” helped No Way Out reach 7x platinum. 

Diddy settled a sexual assault lawsuit against ex-girlfriend and singer Cassie Ventura in November 2023. After Cassie, two additional lawsuits arose against the mogul, filed by two alleged victims. 

The sons of Combs are also involved in legal drama with Justin, 30, named along with Diddy in the lawsuit by producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones, and Christian, also known as rapper King Combs, 26, sued for allegations of sexual assault and emotional distress on Friday (April 5). 

While under investigation, no criminal charges have been filed against Diddy, nor has he been arrested for any sexual allegations. Diddy and his attorneys previously released statements refuting all accusations.
