Sean Combs returns to 'Puff Daddy' for new album

Sean Combs has been called many things over the last 20 years of his career: Puff, Puff Daddy, Puffy, P. Diddy or simply "the D, the I, the D, the D, the Y."

Although he famously shed his “Puff Daddy” moniker back in 2001, he never really ditched it.

Sure, we’ve called him Diddy for more than a dozen years, but the rap mogul is going back to his roots to roll out his upcoming album. On Monday, Combs (sorry, Puff Daddy) rolled out a minute-long teaser video for a new track, “Big Homie.”

In the clip, he offers only a few seconds of the actual track, which will feature Rick Ross and French Montana, but there’s some dramatic shots of his beloved New York City and of him strolling through a bodega, because Puff Daddy frequents corner stores.

The single is the first from his upcoming album, “MMM” -- a title that seriously needs explanation.

A release date for “MMM” has yet to be announced, but it marks Combs’ first album since 2010’s unfortunately overlooked, high-concept “Last Train to Paris,” and his first credited as Puff Daddy since 1999.
