Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy is reportedly going to juggle the launch of his new television network Revolt TV with plans to drop a studio release in the near future.
While details are slim, Atlanta producer Mike Will Made It revealed his involvement on Puff's mystery project.
In addition to those two projects, WiLL has also been producing for Mariah Carey, Diddy, Lil Wayne, Juicy J. "We worked on one song for her album," he said of Mariah Carey. "Diddy - we're working on a new album right now. I'm a fan of Puff. We actually went shopping for my whole outfit," he added, referencing his Versace shades and bullet-toned metallic brocade jacket with tux pants. "He picked out everything because I'm not used to dressing up." (Rolling Stone)
A couple years ago, Puff's one-time Dirty Money group member Dawn Richard spoke on leaving Bad Boy after he fell back on their music.
"Well, Puff was done. He didn't want to do it anymore, and I couldn't sit back and wait around to see what was going to happen next. So instead of waiting, I asked could I be released from my contract, and he was gracious enough to let that happen. I gave him six years of my life, and now I'm just excited about this next phase. Like I said before, every moment up until this point was just getting me ready to step out on my own." (Rolling Out)
Prior to splitting up, former member Kalenna hit up SOHH and discussed their chemistry.
"I just believe that we were in an embryonic state when we started Dirty Money," Kalenna explained to SOHH. "And that's just in a whole, because in this industry you continue to grow until you're really old and being with Puff, it's like we were shot up with steroids. He put us in his boot camp and it was so crazy because we knew things before but with producing the record, writing the lyrics, how to go deeper in your mind and your soul, pulling those things out and making them more vulnerable and exposed to people were all learned. I just think at this point he's created two monsters and we're able to go out and be with other people or be able to be seen apart and still represent who we are as Dirty Money. And I thought that was just genius, as far as our spirituality, leaning and depending on God a lot more. As a group, Dawn could be on the side of the stage and she can wink her right eye and I can wink my left and it's so epic. We're just so in-tune and of course with Puff, he loves the energy. He loves the Yin and the Yang. We're real strong and vice versa." (SOHH)
This week, one of Puff's reps said there was no truth to new Bad Boy shutdown rumors.
The label created by Sean "Diddy" Combs recently commemorated 20 years of existence, but today the viral universe fanned rumors of Diddy shutting down Bad Boy. With swirling hearsay reported that people have either been fired or moved on to other companies, a rep from Bad Boy officially confirmed with XXL that "Bad Boy shutting down is nothing more than rumors," and "isn't true." Bad Boy houses acts like French Montana, Janelle Monae, Machine Gun Kelly, Red Cafe and King Los amid others. (XXL Mag)
