The hip-hop mogul takes back his old moniker for his new album.
The world has been patiently waiting, and now Sean Combs has returned as Puff Daddy for the first time since changing his stage name to P. Diddy at the start of the new millennium.
The rapper announced the return to his roots for his upcoming album MMM by identifying himself as Puff Daddy in a teaser video for his next single, Big Homie, which debuts on March 31.
Combs used the moniker for his debut album, No Way Out, before dropping it for P. Diddy in 2001 weeks after he was found not guilty on charges of gun possession and bribery in connection to a 1999 shooting at a New York club.
MMM, the artiste’s first album in four years, doesn’t have a release date yet. — Reuters
