A new era is upon us. Sean “Diddy” Combs’ fifth album, “Off The Grid”, will be released Sept. 24, 2021. The announcement was made via the rap mogul’s social media accounts Wednesday. The announcement comes in the form of two photographs posted to Diddy’s Instagram account, both with stop-light red letters splashed across a stark black background. The first picture reveals the album’s title, while the second picture reveals the album’s release date. He also shared the announcement on Twitter. He also revealed that he legally changed his middle name to “Love.” Providing some mystery are the words “Vol 1” tacked on to the title, as they indicate there’s potentially another full album counterpart coming from Combs. The forthcoming album will be Combs’ first release since 2015’s “MMM”, a mixtape which featured special guest appearances by Lil Kim, Future, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, Wiz Khalifa and more. The new album announcement comes following the news that Combs has inked a deal with manager Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, who represents The Weeknd. Combs will move into his new era in partnership with Slaiby and his company SALXCO as well as with WME, with whom he also signed this year. The rapper with several names is also a man of many projects. In addition to his new album, he’s also working on his Excellence Program. Partnering with WME, he launched an education progam in June aimed at developing aspiring entertainment executives from underrepresented neighborhoods. The program provides its participants with everything from resume building help to courses covering touring, professional development and storytelling.
