Diddy with Ross and the Maybach Music crew.

If there’s one thing that Diddy’s got the magic touch in, it’s music. Though he’s a monster in liquor and a beast in television, music was always his first hustle and his lasting legacy. Therefore, it’s not a surprise that Rick Ross has tapped him as Executive Producer on his upcoming sixth solo album, Mastermind. With the release date of Mastermind, March 4, rapidly approaching, XXL made a list of some of the best songs and albums of Diddy’s career as a producer and executive producer to see why Rozay was wise to recruit the Ciroc CEO and Bad Boy Worldwide mogul. Here are seven dope albums and singles that prove Diddy’s the right man for just about any project. It's all about the Benjamins. Andrew Asare
