Diddy Drops New Mixtape, Introduces World to His New 'Lectro Black Alter Ego
Published Aug 18, 2009In preparation for his long-anticipated album return, Last Train to Paris, Diddy (aka P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Sean John Combs) took a five-minute break from frantically updating his Twitter to drop a brand new mixtape. But don't call it a Diddy mixtape - the tracks are from his newly minted club alter ego, 'Lectro Black.
Simply titled the 'Lectro Black Last Train to Paris Mixtape, the release is now available from RCRDLBL. The tape was mixed by Chicago DJ Felix Da Housecat, and is made up of a full hour of electro beats with Diddy's 'Lectro Black character rapping over top.
Sample lyrics, as pointed out by MTV, include this little gem: "We are the crush groovin', the body movin', the record makin' and the record breakin'. We go by the name of 'Lectro Black and we represent that dirty, dirty. We represent that electro, that funk, that hip-hop, that punk rock, the dirty, dirty. We ain't into that commercial, crowd pleasin' ass-kissin' DJ, 'throw yo hands in the air, wave 'em like you just don't care' shit! We want your mind, we want your body, and we came to take your motherfuckin' soul!"
While we still don't have a firm release date for the Last Train to Paris album proper, it is expected to be released in November.
