Diddy is slowly Taking Bad Boy Records to Interscope

30 Sep

Sean CombsSean Combs has finally given some in-depth details about his new deal with Interscope Records. Initial rumors had Combs releasing his next album, Last Train to Paris, on the label. Later, rumors stated that he, along with the entire Bad Boy label would move. Then, it was said that he had left Bad Boy Records.

Now, the man behind all of these rumors is finally talking. Diddy said that he has signed a new distribution deal with Interscope Records. His next album will be released on Bad Boy Records and distributed by Interscope. All of the artist currently signed to Bad Boy will remain artists on Atlantic Records, but future artists will be signed to Interscope.

With him moving over to Interscope and all new artists moving over to Interscope, it is safe to say that they will be of bigger priority than the older artists. Bad Boy’s roster currently consists of Cassie, Cheri Dennis, Boyz N da Hood, Black Rob, Donnie Klang, Day26, Dawn Richard, Gorilla Zoe, Janelle Monae, The L.O.X., Ness, Red Café, Mario Winans, and Yung Joc. This is not even mentioning the labels that Bad Boy distributes.

The label is rumored to be interested in signing Mase, Ghostface Killah, Jadakiss, Raekwon, and many other artists. If they are signed, they will be signed to the new Bad Boy Records under Interscope Records. Also, when the contracts are done with the Bad Boy artists under Atlantic and they decide to re-sign, they will become Bad Boy/Interscope artists.

In 2005, Diddy reached a deal with Atlantic/Warner that gave them a 50% stake in Bad Boy Records. He has signed a separate deal with Interscope that is slowly terminating the deal that he made four years ago.
