The single pays homage to King Comb’s dad, Sean P. Diddy Combs. “Can’t stop won’t stop” was a phrase often used by Bad Boy mogul and was a song with Diddy and The Lox. Hot New Hip Hop points out that the title is also the exact title of a Diddy documentary about how he became a success in the music industry.
Revolt notes Rippa On The Beat produced the single. The song is a Lil Kim and Lil Cease sample from their classic hit, “Crush On You,” which was originally a sample from The Jeff Lorber Fusion’s 70s hit “Rain Dance.”
The video takes viewers on a ride to nostalgia. In King Comb’s version, he recreated a similar setup from the Queen Bee’s video. Kodak and Combs rocked matching outfits in some scenes, and they turn up at a party. (hot97)

Blige’s “I’m Goin’ Down,” Puff Daddy’s “Victory,” Shyne’s “Bad Boyz,” Puff Daddy’s “It’s All About the Benjamins,” and “I Need a Girl (Part Two),” Busta Rhymes’ “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II,” and Puff Daddy and Faith Evans’ “I’ll Be Missing You.”

At the 50th birthday bash for the late Biggie Smalls Friday, the Queen Bee exclusively revealed to The Post that her life story will soon be told on the silver screen for music lovers around the world.
Beaming in fitted emerald-green couture, Kim, 47, confirmed her forthcoming biographical flick on the red carpet of the fete, which she hosted at Guastavino’s on 59th Street in honor of Biggie, nèe Christopher Wallace — who was gunned down during a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997, at age 24. He would have been 50 on May 21.
“Absolutely,” said Kim when asked by The Post if fans could expect a film detailing her transformation from a coy Macy’s clerk to renowned Grammy-winning virtuoso.
And while speaking to The Post, Kim noted that the film will closely trail the release of her upcoming memoir.
In the book, Kim will unveil the intimate details of her undying love for Biggie, with whom, despite his being married to singer Faith Evans, 48, at the time of his death, she shared a passionate relationship.
“Oh my God,” said Kim of her forthcoming tell-all. “Everyone’s gonna know things that they’ve never known.”
