Now this is how you turn up for your birthday!
In honor of his big day, Diddy pulled a Beyoncé move and released a surprise new album, MMM on Wednesday, Oct. 4, and it can now be heard on streaming services for free. “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to gift my fans with MMM for free today,” he said in a statement. “MMM is a thank-you to my fans and is just the beginning, a prelude to what will be my final album, No Way Out 2.”
On Tuesday, Oct. 3, Combs threw himself a party in New York City, which centered around the first unveiling of his surprise disc, a project he dubbed a “sonic motion picture,” which sounds an awful lot like the Visual Album that Bey dropped last year. The content appears to be fashion-based: the cover art is a throwback snap featuring Combs and supermodel Kate Moss (taken in 1999), and the mogul told the crowd at the listening party, “Before I used to make records when I made my music. Then I decided to make culture. And as I got older, I decided I’m going to make fashion.”
Naturally, the music mogul enlisted all his friends to collaborate on the disc, including Atlanta rapper Future, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T, French Montana, Styles P, The Lox, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil’ Kim, Jadakiss, King Los, and many more.
Although there’s no word on when No Way Out 2 will be available, fans can listen to the project in its entirety below.
