Their track ‘Pass At Me’ offers a preview of the coffee-table tome, which will be released on November 22 and features photographs of women’s posteriors taken by fashion snapper Raphael Mazzucco.

P Diddy has teamed up with Mazzucco and Interscope Geffen A&M chairman Jimmy Iovine to release the book, which takes its name from the Italian word for ‘buttocks’.

In a statement on the book’s official website, Iovine says: “Fashion needs fewer girls who look like boys and more women with some ‘Boom Boom Pow’.”

Mazzucco, meanwhile, said:

The conversation about creating a book of asses is not your garden-variety cocktail party fare.

Earlier this month, an ex-LAPD detective claimed to have proof that P Diddy and Suge Knight ordered the murdered of rappers Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur. Diddy responded by condemning the allegations as being “pure fiction and completely ridiculous”.
