Puff Daddy to Release New Album ‘No Way Out 2’, Bad Boy Signee Grizzle Says
by Carolyn Menyes | Musictimes.com
It’s all coming full circle for Puff Daddy. As the rapper and mogul celebrates the 20th anniversary of his Bad Boy Records, the label’s most recent signee Gizzle revealed that Puffy (a.k.a. Diddy, Sean Combs, etc.) will be dropping an official sequel to his debut album, fittingly entitled No Way Out 2.
Speaking in an interview with Rap-Up, Gizzle spilled the beans about what he says is Puff Daddy’s final full-length LP. « I’m working on Puff Daddy’s last album, » he said. « It’s called No Way Out 2. It’s a crazy project. I’m very honored to be a part of it. Nobody can make an album like Puff Daddy. I’ll be actually rapping on there too. »
According to Gizzle, the follow-up to Puff Daddy’s 1997 classic No Way Out is going to be a release to remember. He’s heralding it as a « classic » and « epic, » which is no small order.
« It’s one of a kind. The mindset is to just be classic and be epic and to really live up to that. We know it’s a tall order, but we welcome the challenge, » he said.
Further news about Puffy’s No Way Out 2 remains tightly under wraps, but under his original moniker Puff Daddy & The Family, a new single « Finna Get Loose » featuring Pharrell dropped earlier this year.
No Way Out 2 is not the only new music coming from Combs in the coming months. He’s also working on a different project, MMM (Money Making Mitch).
« I think MMM is something else, » said Gizzle. « You’ll be surprised. It’s a lot of cool things going on. »
