In an interview with a upcoming issue of Cigar Aficionado, Puff Daddy reveals that he’ll be retiring from the music industry and will be spending his time in doing film. This will mark the end of  his 20-year long music career, Read the highlights below and be sure to pick up a copy when it drops on May 3 for the full interview.

“I’m going to put out my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films. I want to stop at a great place. And a final album is a great place to stop. I want to take a victory lap, to do a world tour and really enjoy it once last time. […] I have such a deep appreciation at being able to be a father,” he says. “My father didn’t get the chance to be there for me. That makes me appreciate the opportunity that much more deeply. I stress the importance of that to my kids—that you can’t take having a family for granted. […] If you’re not putting out albums all the time, you have to come back in a way that grabs attention. People are always looking for what’s next – but the cream always rises to the top. I’m going to make it the most honest and best that I can. If I can be fearless with it, nothing can stop me.”

I don’t know about you but Puffy has been around my entire life and though he’s not the greatest rapper. A part of me is a little sad to see him go. He’s had a good run and is a major staple in hip hop history. If he is seriously leaving the music game then we wish him the best. Lets pour one up for the homie Puffy aka Puff Daddy aka P.Diddy, aka Sean Puffy Combs!
