It was stated that last Tuesday Sean "Diddy" Combs signed a deal with Universal Music Group's Interscope Geffen A&M label. In the deal all of Diddy's future albums will be released and it will also create a new Bad Boy/Interscope joint venture. Interscope, which is headed by Jimmy Iovine, has a long history with hip hop. In fact, it is home to labels like rapper 50 Cents' G-Unit Records and Eminem's Shady Records but also pop artists like Lady Gaga and Nelly Furtado.
I think Diddy and his artists who are signed to Bad Boy will fit in great at Interscope. I can only hope for Interscope's benifit that Diddy is 100% focused on his album and not another MTV band. His new upcoming album "Next Train To Paris," will be the first release on this deal. I am excited for the album to drop, it is said to be electro-hip hop soul funk. Diddy is collaborating with hit-making producers The Dream, Tricky, The Neptunes, Mario Winans, T-Pain and Rodney Jerkins.
I am ready to see and hear again the "artist" Diddy not the "business man" Diddy!
