Nas could receive Diddy’s key to New York City

New York, NY

Nas has been suggested as Diddy’s replacement as pressure grows to revoke his honorary key to New York City.

Several members of the New York City Council have been pressuring Mayor Eric Adams to take back the symbolic key after CCTV footage emerged of the Bad Boy mogul assaulting his ex-girlfriend Cassie.

Several council members spoke with TMZ, including Sandy Nurse, who said, “Mayor Adams should immediately revoke Diddy’s key to the city. As an abuser, Diddy forfeited his right to such honor and should be held accountable for his actions. “Mayor Adams should lead by example and remove it.”

Council member Shaun Abreu commented: “Mayor Adams should take the key from Diddy and lock the door behind him. “We won’t miss you.”

Council member Justin Brannan also offered a replacement for Diddy in Nas, calling the Queensbridge rapper the “GOAT.”

Diddy was given the key to the city last September, just two months before Cassie sued him for sexual assault, among other crimes, but Mayor Adams has talked about revoking it.

In an interview with PIX11 earlier this week, Adams addressed the footage of Diddy’s assault, saying, “I think we were all deeply disturbed watching that chilling video of the young girl being assaulted by him.

And he added: “The committee and the team had never rescinded a key before, but now we are sitting down to see what the next steps will be (…) We are taking everything into analysis and the team will come.” Return me with a final determination.”

The images in question, obtained by cnn Late last week shows Diddy brutally assaulting Cassie in a hotel hallway in 2016.

The mogul can be seen running out of his hotel room wearing only a towel and throwing the singer to the floor while she waits for an elevator.

He then kicks and stomps on her as she lies on the ground before dragging her back to her hotel room. CCTV footage also shows him pushing her against a wall as she tries to use a hotel phone and throwing a vase at her.

Diddy has since apologized for his actions in the video, claiming he was “at rock bottom” at the time.

“My behavior in that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I am disgusted. So I was upset when I did it. Now I am disgusted,” she said in a solemn video posted on Instagram.

“I’m so sorry. But I’m committed to being a better man every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m so sorry.”

Cassie’s attorney called the apology “false.”
