Listen to Puff Daddy & the Family’s ‘MMM’ Album
Diddy won’t stop -- and we don’t want him to. The Bad Boy leader releases a free album, MMM, to celebrate his birthday (Nov. 4).
"I want to thank everybody that has supported me over the years and purchased any music that I’ve made. With that being said, on my birthday, I would like to return the favor and gift you something that is important to me. All I ask is that you listen and enjoy!" he wrote in an Instagram post announcing the record.
Several artists are featured on the LP including old friends like Jadakiss, Styles P and Lil' Kim as well as current heavy hitters like Future, Sevyn Streeter, French Montana and Wiz Khalifa.
The business mogul, who's been churning out hits since the '90s, starts off the "ultimate hustler fairy tale" with "Facts," a story of how he became successful.
The character in Diddy's story tells listeners that in order to make it in this business, it's important to "take their street smarts and run the world." The skit ends cleverly as a flight attendant's voice begins to make an announcement using the numbers in Diddy's birthday: "We are preparing to make our final descent into New York f---in' City. The local time is 11:04 p.m. and the temperature is 68 degrees."
She continues to point out some important sites: "If you look to the left you will see the borough of Brooklyn -- home to the Notorious B.I.G. And on your right is the world famous Harlem World -- home of the legendary Puff Daddy himself." It turns out they're riding on Combs Air, "where all dreams do come true."
The album goes straight into the ode to Diddy's old stomping grounds with "Harlem," on which he calls himself the King of New York in a slow drawl over the head nodding beat. Head-nodding bangers like "Help Me" featuring the songbird Sevyn, and "Auction," which Diddy debuted at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards are also included. The title song "MMM" featuring Future and King Los proves to be a boastful anthem over a bouncy rhythm. "Workin" gets an assist from Big Sean and Travi$ Scott as well.
