Rap mogul P DIDDY admits he's attracted hatred from people due to his phenomenal success.

Diddy, real name Sean Combs, says he felt a backlash at the height of his fame - but drew encouragement from the words of Snoop Dogg.

He says, "I felt a real backlash for being so big and all over the place. Niggas flipped on me like I was wack or a nigga was over. At a show once I even heard some undertones of boos."

"That s*** didn't feel good for a long time but then I read something that Snoop said about me. He said, 'Now you're going to be able to test if a nigga is supposed to be where he's at.' And it was then I made sure I was able to handle the onslaught."
