Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy has recruited rapper Yung Berg for involvement on his upcoming Last Train to Paris album.
According to Berg, he has worked on two records for the rap mogul's forthcoming LP.
"A lot of people don't know that I've been behind the scenes producing and writing records for a lot of different artists. I actually have two records on Diddy's Last Train To Paris album that I produced, one called "Make Love To You" and "Half On A Baby" that I co-wrote as well. They're both slower, R&B type songs. He actually sent the "Half On A Baby record to Rico Love, who I've been building a relationship with." (VIBE)
Over the summer, Berg said he was also doing records with Bad Boy artists Dirty Money and Cassie.
"Well right now, man, I've been producing a lot of things with my brother Rob," Berg revealed in his interview with Playboy Radio. "We working man, we got a lot of things out. We got Rich Boy's new single out, 'Stand On The Couth,' We got that popping and then we got my new single which is 'Sex & The City' and it's coming out right now...4th of July weekend, we're actually going to Atlantic City, Puff, Dirty Money, yeah so if you're in Atlantic City and you're listening right now, please show some love to the big homie Puff, we'll be in the building holding it down, you know...We got a lot of things coming, like I said, Last Train to Paris, Rob produced a lot on it and I helped him out with a few things on that, we got Rich Boy's new single, 'Standing On The Couch,' featuring Polow, we're working on Cassie's new project, Roscoe Dash, we did a record for Lloyd, we just working right now."

Originally slated to drop in 2009, producer Rico Love recently talked with SOHH about Diddy's delayed LP.
"I was just with him recently and I feel like he's really, really close [to completion]. He just has this one record he wants to have perfected and add some parts to it. He's just so much of a perfectionist that he won't stop until he feels like he has his masterpiece. It's like Picasso, you [couldn't] tell Picasso when something was ready. And I can respect that, I feel like if he puts out material [and] it's not good, everybody's gonna trash it and say, "this is bullsh*t." (SOHH Guest Star)
In the summer, Rico said the album had potential to be a classic.
"If he comes out and the record is not good, then y'all are gonna trash him but with the fact that he went in and he said 'I'm gonna take my time until I'm happy with what I'm delivering to the people,' I really take my hat off to Puff, I take my hat off to the whole Dirty Money crew -- it's tough for an artist to deal with that type of pressure," Love said in an interview. "I think it's gonna be one of the best albums to come out, and I'm really gonna say this, it's gonna be one of the best albums to come out in the past five, six years. It's gonna be mentioned with 808's & Heartbreak and College Dropout, Blueprint III, like those types of albums I really feel like, 'Dangerously in Love,' I think that Last Train to Parisalbum has the possibility to be that big."
