"Diddy" Gets in Touch With Rolling Stone, But Fails to Mention "Notorious" Soundtrack


Yesterday, Rolling Stone received an e-mail press release informing us that the soundtrack to the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious will be out on Bad Boy January 13th. We also received a package in the mail from Bad Boy's little-known and uh, fictional, Valley Village, California outpost from "Diddy," who was promoting a disc from a group called Wax & E.O.M. The handwritten note from "Sean 'Puffy' Combs" is as real as our new interview with George W., and truly amusing: It concludes, "Please listen to the enclosed CD. Also, enjoy the enclosed pack of gum and photo of myself, both of which are intended as bribes" (photo above). We've had artists call up to ask us to review their work before, but a celebrity impersonation is a first. Bravo, Diddy.
