Even with the "We Won't Stop" slogan well-worn into our brains for its third consecutive decade, it is still quite the phenom to see Sean "Diddy" Combs make headway with his constantly dwindling rap resources. Long gone are the days when his "familia" scoured the charts to strengthen his musical empire with the past few years---unsurprisingly---forcing the multi-million dollar man's recording duties to go into repose. 2006 was the year of Diddy's last studio output in Press Play, which, basically was an open casting call to the who's who of the industry to supply the Bad Boy with firepower that couldn't be found in-house.
Fortunately, the musical iso-period saw more endorsements land into the aggressively ambitious mogul's lap yet his lowkey presence on the charts was apparently put to good use as he's added some malleable pieces to the fray that look to improve his musical contributions. Coordinating the services of Dawn Richard (formally of Danity Kane) and Kalenna Harper, Diddy arguably assembles the best possible scenario for himself, constructing his own quasi-urban B-52's model.
