Puff Daddy’s celebrating his 46th birthday by sharing a gift with the world: his new project, MMM. The mogul/rapper made the surprise announcement after holding a private listening session in NYC on Tuesday night. Described by Diddy as “a sonic motion picture,” Money Makin’ Mitch contains 12 tracks whose features include the likes of Future, Wiz Khalifa, Jadakiss, French Montana, Lil Kim, and more. “Before I used to make records when I made my music,” Puff told the crowd of invited listeners. “Then I decided to make culture. And as I got older, I decided I’m going to make fashion. Ladies and gentlemen, listen and watch some fashion.”
Money Makin’ Mitch was once thought to be scrapped when Puffy decided to cancel his planned world tour. Instead, he shifted his focus to making No Way Out 2 and bring The Family into his plans. As his first solo effort since, No Way Out 2 serves as the sequel to his highly successful debut release from 1997 and is said to be Diddy’s final album. But for now, the focus is MMM. Below, we’ve included the tracklist and we’ll update with audio once the project is released.
Update: Here’s the final version of the project, available for a free listen below. It can also be downloaded, both the dirty version and the clean copy, too, courtesy of Bad Boy. Also, Puff wrote a letter to pair with the release and it can be seen below as well.
“Money Making Mitch is this fairy tale you know, about this fly nigga from Harlem that came up and he did his thing man he was shining on them, stylin on them.
Showin them how to do it.
Showin them how to get it.
Maybe he was getting in the wrong way, but you know, the fairy tale of it, is most brothers and sisters end up dead or in jail.
But check this out with this fairy tale that I created in my brain imagine if Mitch lived, survived, took those different talents and attributes and business skills and applied it to the world of business. Maned the game.
The legal game.
So this is the fairy tale man and fairy tales do come true.
Cuz we got millions of cats that’s comin up with that hustlers spirit and drive they got that Mitch in them and they ain’t going to fall to the waste side. They going to take those street smarts and run the world because:
The Black Man is God and NO WAY OUT 2
That’s how I’ma leave it on you.
