It’s official! Although we feel like this happened already, but fly guy, Diddy is calling it quits! Well from music that is. After blessing us with major hits for years complete with signature dance moves and ad-libs, Diddy says he’s giving it all up to focus on a career in acting.
The hip hop mogul took his talents to to discuss his retirement and newest venture. “I’m going to put out my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films … I want to stop at a great place.”
The question is … who is retiring? Diddy, P-Diddy or Puff Daddy?
His final album, No Way Out 2, is scheduled to be the final chapter of his legacy in the music industry.
“When I’m gone, only the songs will survive. I know I’m making music that will live on. I don’t go into the studio just to be hot or to hear myself on the radio,” Diddy told the magazine. “Michael Jackson, Tupac, Biggie – part of them lives on in their music, even though they’re not here anymore. That’s really deep, man. The only thing like that is religion.”
Ok Pastor Puffy!
We won’t hold you, but we grew up on Puff Daddy, he’s a hero of ours, so we are secretly happy that we’ve received the chance to experience the entire Bad Boy era! Diddy is ready to kick off his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour on May 20, with an additional date honoring Biggie’s birthday at the Barclays Center.
But before Diddy bows out he plans to travel the world one last time. “I want to take a victory lap, to do a world tour and really enjoy it one last time,” he said.
