After multiple delays, Diddy‘s Last Train to Paris will once again be pushed back to a retail release this September.
Initially slated for a late June release after previous scheduling conflict-based push backs, Puff will now keep fans waiting closer to the fall.
‘Hello Good Morning’ couldn’t help either. Diddy announed on Scott Mills BBC show that the album will now arrive on September 20th. If you remember, the album was originally planned to release last September. (Hip Hop N More)
Producer/Ghostwriter Rico Love recently said Puff’s upcoming album would 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 Paris album has the possibility to be that big.” (Rap-Up TV)
Diddy ghostwriter Mista Raja recently talked with SOHH and shared his thoughts on the upcoming record.
“Well it is experimental, I would lean more toward 808’s & Heartbreak than Jay‘s Blueprint III,” Raja added. “Like from what I heard of the album, I didn’t love everything but he’s got a solid eight that I could see myself bumping. You know, you can never count Diddy out. As a producer, he’s one of the producers that I look up to and there’s only a few producers — you can’t count it out but it is a solid album, it’s up to the people to make it a classic. When it all comes back and all the conversations are there, that’s when you’re gonna know if you got a classic album or not but I definitely support it and respect it, shout-outs to Diddy.” (SOHH)
Despite having singles like his T.I.-assisted “Hello, Good Morning,” 50 Cent has taunted Diddy’s new love-based songs.
His music sucks,” 50 said in an interview. “It’s bad. He’s not an artist anyway, so it doesn’t really matter. When you think about it, is he a rapper? Because he says he doesn’t write rhymes, he writes checks. Like the same things that I would say are wrong with a Rick Ross project, it’s not authenticity to what he’s doing. Now he’s a singer? I think that’s Kanye West’s part. Kanye’s an artist, if he’s making those artistic choices — it’s different. Puff is just buying a record and singing. Nobody’s buying [Last Train to Paris.] He even said it himself that he doesn’t expect it to sell, he doesn’t care about the sales, he’s just using it as a promotional tool…” (Jam N 94.5)
