Diddy Delays ‘Last Train To Paris’ for Jay-Z, Drake Albums
Hip-hop mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs is putting his 'Last Train To Paris' album on hold in light of upcoming releases from rappers Jay-Z and newcomer, Drake. The usually competitive Combs stated that he had no problem stepping to the side, and is enjoying working on his project.
"We just [vibing] and making music, having a good time," he said in an interview. "The album is [going to] be something different for me, and I don't have to support it by myself...The train is coming...It's coming, it's coming. Right now, it's like Jay-Z time and Drake time. Enjoy those guys. But the train is coming. Get your ticket. You don't want to be left out." Billed as an eclectic mix of music, Combs jumped on the current trend of using a vocoder to modulate his voice despite Hova's recent announcement of the 'Death of Autotune.'
In preparation for the release, the 39-year-old embarked on a nationwide search to audition potential band members for his upcoming world tour. The competition will be the focus of his 'Making His Band' reality, show airing on MTV.
Although originally scheduled to hit stores this fall, at press time the album had no official release date.
'Making His Band' premieres on July 27 at 10PM.
