“Off the Grid Vol. 1” marks Diddy’s first major music release since 2015’s ‘MMM (Money Making Mitch)’ — a 16-track mixtape that saw a slew of contributions from many top singers including Sevyn Streeter, Jadakiss, Styles P, Pusha T, Lil’ Kim, Future, French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Travis Scott, and Ty Dolla $ign. And he hasn’t put out a proper album since 2010’s Last Train to Paris.
Diddy acted as an executive producer on Burna Boy’s 2020 album Twice as Tall.
In 2019, Diddy announced that he was taking a break from music, but he returned to the studio in January 2021. “To be honest, I’ve been in semi-retirement,” he told Rolling Stone at the time. “If you don’t see my name on all the Top 10 records, that means I’m not making music.”
Combs’s debut album, No Way Out (1997), has been certified seven times platinum. The album was followed by Forever (1999), The Saga Continues… (2001) and Press Play (2006), all of which were commercially successful. In 2009, Combs formed the musical group Dirty Money and released the critically and commercially successful album Last Train to Paris (2010).
Combs has won three Grammy Awards and two MTV Video Music Awards and is the producer of MTV’s Making the Band.
