- Story Text: One of the world's most hip hop artists, Puff Daddy, released his latest CD, "P-Diddy and the Bad Boy Family, The Saga Continues," at the Virgin Megastore in New York's Times Square on Monday.
Puff Daddy is one of the most respected and well known rappers of all time. Many will never forget his well known relationship with Jennifer Lopez that ended just a few months ago. If that is not enough, how can anyone forget about a recent shooting incident at a well known New York nightclub where one of his well known posse was sentenced to prison for shooting a gun at the club and injuring innocent bystanders.
But the well known "Puffy" proved to be an "untouchable" and was found not guilty of all the charges he faced. Within a few months of an extended court case, Puffy found himself signing autographs and greeting fans for what is expected to be one of the hottest CD's of the summer. A new video is being released on Tuesday July 10th, at 1800est (2200gmt).
When asked about was his new CD was all about, Puff Daddy said,
"My new CD is about music, it's about dancing, it's about having a good time, it ain't to personal and deep underlying meanings, it's just like yo man, put on the record, dance to it, shake your ass in the shower, out of the shower, in car, going to work, jus having a good time man."
Puff Daddy is also well known for his line clothes that he calls, Sean Jean. When asked what else is coming up for him, Puffy spoke casually about how the public should be getting into his underwear.
"You know I always got something up my sleeve, I got some new underwear that's in store now, Sean Jean underwear, whole lot of underwear for men, you need to have yo ass in a pair of my underwear."
But the big question on everyone's mind is has Puffy moved on from Jennifer Lope? And to that Puffy responded, " "Oh man, I can't talk about things like that right now, I'm talking about this album baby, go get it!"
Video from Puffy's 1999 release, "Public Enemy NO 1" shows that although Puffy is in the fashion business, his clothes have not changed all that much over the last two years. A large crowd was on hand for the CD signing but it was only a small number who were lucky enough to get signed.
