Diddy is going back to where it all began.
It’s been 18 years since releasing his debut album, the hip-hop mogul is readying the sequel, No Way Out 2.
Bad Boy’s newest member Gizzle shared the news at ASCAP’s Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, “I’m working on Puff Daddy’s last album,” said Gizzle. “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. 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.”
The album will serve as the follow-up to 1997’s No Way Out, released under the title Puff Daddy & The Family. He also debuted his Pharrell Williams-assisted single “Finna Get Loose”under his ’90s moniker.
Puff had previously announced plans for his mysterious MMM (Money Making Mitch) project. “I think MMM is something else,” said Gizzle. “You’ll be surprised. It’s a lot of cool things going on.”
Diddy has referenced the No Way Out 2 title on Instagram using the hashtag #NWO2, and is planning the Bad Boy 20th anniversary tour.
