Diddy’s train is finally ready to leave the station. After several setbacks, the hip-hop mogul’s fifth studio album, Last Train to Paris, has received a release date.
Puffy announced the news in an interview with UK radio personality Tim Westwood. “We revving that train up,” he said. “We about to take off. We got the release date…it’s June 22.”
“Why is it June 22,” Diddy asked, rhetorically. “’Cause we wanna set it up the right way, we wanna take our time, drop two more singles [and] do a bunch of videos.”
During the appearance, Puff also said that he snagged T.I. for a collaboration on the disc set to come out through his new deal with Interscope. Along with Tip and Rick Ross—who has two verses on the “Angels (Remix)”—Diddy told MTV News that Lil Wayne and Drake are also featured on the album.
Last Train To Paris was originally slated to hit stores in 2009. —William Nilly
