Album Review: Diddy - Dirty Money - Last Train To Paris (Polydor)

From swimming in a massive pile of money to his nutso turn in Get Him To The Greek via text-pesting the drummer out of Arctic Monkeys, Sean ‘Diddy’ Coombs is our kind of madman. But get him near a mic and suddenly he has all the steez of a shopfloor dummy. Which is why Diddy - Dirty Money — his project with Bad Boy protégés Dawn Richard and Kalenna Harper — is the perfect showcase for his surprisingly spiffy new record. The chilly Euro-house stylings may be a mite predictable but Diddy proves a generous curator, laying on blockbuster exhibits and atmospheric slow jamz alike in the greatest cast-of-millions hip-hop joint since, well, Kanye’s latest.
