Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell has recalled a business dealing with Diddy that ended with Uncle Luke declining an offer for a trip on a private jet.

Uncle Luke shared details on a recent interview with the “We In Miami” podcast.

The 2 Live Crew star said he got a call just before the release of rapper French Montana’s 2012 “Pop That” music video — featuring Rick Ross, Drake, and Lil Wayne.

According to Uncle Luke, the Bad Boy/Interscope single sampled his hit song “I Wanna Rock,” without permission or payment.

Still, he said Diddy — then known as “Puff Daddy” — asked him to appear in the music video.

“Puff was like, ‘We want you to come and be in this video,'” Uncle Luke recalled. “But I was like, ‘Nah, I’m good.'”

Uncle Luke said he was told Lil Wayne and Drake would be at the video shoot, but he didn’t care.

“I was like, ‘I don’t give a f–k.’ That’s just not my vibe. They’re all cool people, but I don’t just move like that because somebody is someplace. ‘[They said] We’ll send a jet,’ but I was like, ‘I don’t need no f–king jets and all that.'”

Several articles were written about the song, but Uncle Luke said he told the interviewers he had nothing to do with the single.

“People started hitting me [up] and I was like ‘I don’t know what the f–k that [song] is,'” he shared. “Then it became as if it’s a little beef, but I was like, I don’t have beef with nobody.”

The “We In Miami” crew then asked the 63-year-old rapper if he was paid for the song sample.

“Nah, I didn’t want no check,” he said. “If it was done the right way, then yeah, we’ll negotiate through people, but I don’t want checks like that. I just let people have s–t.”

Later in the interview, the podcasters asked Uncle Luke if he ever attended any of Diddy’s infamous parties.

“I would go to the party and leave early,” he said, suggesting that he didn’t want to be part of whatever was happening. “I’m sorry. I don’t know what goes on after hours, but I wasn’t trying to find out. I know my place.”

Diddy has been constantly in the news lately after agents from the Department of Homeland Security raided his homes in Los Angeles and Miami on March 25, as part of a sex trafficking investigation.

The Bad Boy founder has been accused by multiple women and music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones of sexual abuse. The music mogul has denied all of the allegations.
