P. Diddy to preview LP for free
P. Diddy is previewing his new material at a free concert.
The rapper and his new group Diddy-Dirty Money will perform songs from upcoming album 'Last Train To Paris' at a concert at the Old Fruitmarket, in Glasgow, Scotland, on September 29.
The show will be Diddy's first UK concert in over five years and the hip-hop superstar will also treat fans to a selection of his greatest hits as well as the fresh material.
The band said: "We cannot wait to bring the Diddy-Dirty Money movement to Glasgow. Diddy-Dirty Money definitely know how to get the party started!"
The concert is part of MTV Crashes and is being filmed and aired on MTV channels in 161 countries.
Kerry Taylor, Senior Vice President Content and Creative for MTV Networks UK and Ireland, said: "Glasgow is the ideal destination for MTV Crashes. Diddy-Dirty Money who will no doubt help us 'crash' the city of Glasgow on September 29 and turn it into one big party for the people of the city."
The 40-year-old rapper formed Diddy-Dirty Money with singers Kalenna Harper and Dawn Richard and recently admitted he named the group after spending time thinking about his cash-stashing habits.
He said: "It's called Dirty Money because of a situation I found myself in a while back. I had some dollars stashed in my pants. I keep my s**t pretty tight so there was no question of this cash being, you know, tainted in any way.
"But it made me think it was dirty money from being stashed down my pants. That's where the name came from."
