Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy is living the high life as new photos of his $8.5 million apartment have landed online days after it went onto the buyer's market.

The fancy apartment reportedly got transformed from a three to one-bedroom once Diddy took over.

Last week, Diddy listed his 2,300-square-foot high-rise apartment in NYC for $8.5 million. It boasts phenomenal views of Manhattan, interior decorating by designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, a transparent piano, and a huge bottle of champagne. It was originally a three-bedroom that he converted into a one-bedroom. Who would say no to floor-to-ceiling windows and a view that makes you feel like you're on top of Central Park? That's right, nobody. (Complex)

The rap mogul also received help from celebrity designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz in its overall look.

Sean "Diddy" Combs' 2,300-square-foot high-rise apartment in Manhattan hit the market for $8.5M last week, and finally some sweet new listing photos have surfaced. The apartment, a large one-bedroom carved from a three-bedroom unit, boasts some pretty fabulous views of Central Park and slick, at times sparkly, decor by celebrity designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, not to mention a kind of cool transparent piano, more than one black velvet sofa, and a colossal bottle of Champagne. Whatever one's personal feelings about Lucite may be, Diddy's pad is yet another pristine enclave in one of America's dingiest cities. And hey, is it really a home of a hip-hop powerhouse if it doesn't include some over-the-top details? Have a gander above and check out the floorplan over on Curbed NY. (Curbed)

Reports of Puff Daddy's pricey apartment hitting the for sale block surfaced last week.

SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS has put his Manhattan, New York apartment on the market for a whopping $8.5 million (GBP5.3 million). The rap mogul and entrepreneur bought the one-bedroom pied-a-terre for $3.8 million (GBP2.4 million) in 2005, according to public records, and the listing information, obtained by RealEstalker.com, suggests the pad on the 66th floor of the Park Imperial building features a media lounge and a piano room. The place is also "fully customized for the most sophisticated living," and comes with a nine-foot flat-screen TV and panoramic city and Central Park views. (ABC 2 News)

Recently, Diddy just missed topping Forbes' annual Hip-Hop Cash Kings list.

With $110 million in pretax earnings, Dr. Dre is this year's Hip-Hop Cash King--despite the fact that his long-awaited album, Detox, remains on the shelf. He's not the only one on the list who banks the bulk of his bucks outside the recording studio. Diddy ranks No. 2 with $45 million, thanks mostly to a share of profits from Diageo's Ciroc vodka; Jay-Z ranks third with $38 million, pulling in more than half his annual earnings from ventures including ownership stakes in cosmetics company Carol's Daughter, the Brookyln Nets and a joint venture with battery maker Duracell.
