Forbes richest star in the hip-hop world will be releasing his first solo album since the 2006 album “Press Play.” As name changes have become synonymous with Combs, reverting back to the Puff Daddy nickname will symbolize a return to music as a solo album.
Combs seems to change his nickname every time he embarks upon a new project. He has been Diddy for the past decade after briefly going under the name of P.Diddy. Under Diddy, he has released a Diddy-Dirity Money collaboration album titled “Last Train to Paris”. He has launched the careers of musical groups such as Danity Kane and Day 26 and has been involved in numerous business ventures.
The new album does not have a release date yet, but the timing of the announcement coincides with a teaser trailer for his new single, “Big Home.” The teaser video features appearances by Rick Ross and French Montana. The single is scheduled to hit the airwaves on March 31.
Under the original tag of Puff Daddy, the founder of Bad Boy Records is hoping to re-create that old hip-hop vibe with a modern touch of course.
