31 Dec MMM rereleased on iTunes with bonus tracks
Puff Daddy is close to the finish line as a recording artist. But first, the performer wants to go out with a bang by rereleasing his well-received sonic motion picture, MMM
, on iTunes. The sonic motion picture serves as the prequel to No Way Out 2, Puff Daddy's final album to be released next year.
"I'm just following in the footsteps of (Frank) Sinatra," said the rapper, born Sean Combs, in an interview Wednesday. "It feels good to end something on your terms that you worked so hard to build."
MMM was initially released for free on Nov. 4 - the Grammy winner's 46th birthday. The sonic motion picture garnered positive reviews and featured artists like Future, Lil Kim, Jadakiss, French Montana and others.
Puff said he felt compelled to rerelease the mixtape after hearing the "overwhelming demand"
from fans and colleagues to sale it. The rerelease will include a new interlude and two additional tracks.
"I was surprised that after people had a chance to have it for free, they still want to buy it," he said. "I heard about the effect that Kendrick (Lamar) had when he let everybody hear his album for a week for free before they could buy it. It just shows that if it's quality, people have a demand for it."
