Puff Daddy Releases “Big Homie” Video Featuring Celebrities And Dirty Money

It makes me so happy to write Puff Daddy instead of P. Diddy and I only have my own love of nostalgia to blame.

Following the audio release last week, Puff Daddy has blessed the internet with the official visuals for his comeback single, “Big Homie.” The clip takes a step back from high-gloss visuals of recent Diddy efforts and aims to remind fans that Puffy still has cred in the street. You see Sean Combs and crew hanging out around NYC and LA, mean mugging for the camera, and occasionally counting large stacks of money that looks …


Big Homie: Puff Daddy’s Comeback Single Is A Beast

Growing up in the 1990s, I can recall several years where no one in hip-hop could touch the Bad Boy Records empire. It was the premiere label in urban music, and sitting on the throne was none other than Sean Combs – aka Puff Daddy. If you have never heard No Way Out in its entirety you have lived an unfulfilled life.

In the early 2000s, Puff Daddy became P. Diddy, and with the name change came a musical evolution that leaned heavily on pop influences and turned away many longtime listeners. Later releases found circles where they were appreciated, …


P Diddy Goes Back To Puff Daddy, Announces New Album

In our lifetime we’ve gotten to see one man take on one too many monikers. We’ve known him as Sean Combs, P Diddy, just Diddy, Puffy, and now he’s going back to the one that started it all – Puff Daddy. How long will this name change last though? Probably as long as his new album cycle takes.

It’s been four years since this guy’s dropped a record but back then he was still Diddy. It’s been even longer since he’s released anything under Puff Daddy. It was in ’99 when Forever hit the shelves and went to number two …


Big K.R.I.T. Kicks Off ‘Week Of K.R.I.T.’ With A Rick Ross Assisted Banger

There is nothing better than a song you never expected arriving in your inbox and blowing your mind. Big K.R.I.T. is no stranger to the world of hit-making, he has truly outdone himself with this first contribution to his ‘Week Of K.R.I.T.’ free music series.

Review: Rick Ross – ‘Mastermind’

Artist: Rick Ross
Album: Mastermind
Genre: Hip-hop

Rick Ross has gone through a lot since his last album. Between accusations of date rape lyrics, lawsuits from the real Rick Ross, tour dates around the globe, an attempt on his life, and all sorts of shade from artists and critics alike, the man behind Mastermind has experienced more in the last two years than many will ever go through in their entire lives. Unfortunately, most of that never gets addressed or put to good use on his sixth studio album, Mastermind. Instead, Ross offers a collection of potential radio …

All I want is a $100 million dollars and a bad bitch.

Rick Ross surprised fans last night by sharing his new album, Mastermind, via iTunes a full week ahead of the record’s official shelf date. The entire record is worth your time, but for those who only want the hits we are sharing what is bound to be the most talked about track.

His recent singles and freestyles have been some of the best of his …


Rick Ross Debuts “Nobody” Featuring French Montana

Fresh off the premiere of “War Ready” earlier this month, Maybach Music Group CEO Rick Ross has delivered the second single off his upcoming album.

Produced by Diddy, “Nobody” pairs Ross with French Montana for a laid back anthem about what makes a nobody a somebody. It’s the type of track that allows emcees to ignite a fire in your soul without aggressively attacking the beat. You can put it on and vibe, but still feel motivated to get shit done. Click below to stream “Nobody.”

If I could change one thing about this track it’s the decision to …

MUSIC VIDEO: Rick Ross – “Bound 2″ Freestyle Cover

Kanye West released his latest album, Yeezus, last summer. One of the singles off that album, which he also released a music video for, is “Bound 2.” Aside from the controversial video and the fact that he is being sued for sampling the 1971 song “Bound,” that song has been a huge hit. When you have big hit singles, usually people want to show off their creativity and whip up a remix or re-imagined version of the music. Rick Ross has done so and released a freestyle version of “Bound 2.” He even premiered a music video for it. …
