How many times are you allowed to change your name? Sean Combs signs a deal with Universal:

    Rap mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, one of contemporary music’s most successful entrepreneurs, has signed a distribution deal with Vivendi Universal’s Universal Records rather than sell the Bad Boy label he says is worth $100 million, the partners said on Thursday.

    The three-year deal leaves Universal paying marketing and promotion costs and giving Combs an undisclosed upfront fee, which analysts saw as a way for the producer of such hit acts as Faith Evans and the late Notorious B.I.G. to get the backing of the biggest record maker without selling his own company in a down market.

    Terms of the deal were not disclosed and industry sources gave conflicting accounts. One source said Universal had paid the producer a few million dollars up front and committed to $10 million in marketing and promotion over three years.

    Another said the deal could be worth up to $75 million to Combs, formerly known as Puff Daddy. [Reuters]

And always known to suck. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to purge the image of Puffy and Jimmy Page doing such violence to Led Zeppelin on SNL – no wonder Godzilla tanked.

    In June he bought back control of Bad Boy for an undisclosed sum, ending a 10-year 50-50 joint venture with Bertelsmann AG’s Arista.

    “I wasn’t going out there searching or begging for that number. I just went for the best deal,” he said. “Because of where the marketplace is at, I had to take my time. At the end of the day I got what I wanted.

    “What we are doing is black history right here,” he said. “I retain 100 percent ownership. I just pay a distribution fee and get promotion.”

I’m not sure what this has to do with black history, but he is a good businessman, no doubt about that.

    Hi Mr.Combs! Here’s one of your biggest fans. I’m Pedro Mendes with 22 year old, also know as PDL and I’m trying to start develop my career the way that you’ve done. I also design clothes and I wanna create my own line cause I’m really good, but I have music as my big passion. Actually most of people used to say that me and you, we really look like each other physically. In this case, I look like you cause you “arrived” first. Is really weird but that’s true. Anyway, I’m living in London desperate for the oportunity to start my musical career in America as an RnB singer. But as I’m here at my own, I have to do some savings first and then, do the big jump investing on me. Wish you could help me but maybe it’s almost impossible cause there’s plenty of guys asking for the same. Anyway I ain’t gonna quit to do my thing! I’ll keep strugglin at my own willing that one day we’ll be enjoying together. One love big man…

    hi. I’m not sure if Mr.Combs hisself will ever read this. but right now I’m reaching for the stars & if I make it great. if not, I wont be discouraged. I have what I believe is a great idea. its primarily for toodlers & infants.i got the idea from my now 2 year old son & 4 month old son. I think it’ll be a very profitable idea. as well as beneficient to many parents. if Mr.Combs in fact does receive or view this message in any way. I’d love to share more of my idea with you personally. [Personal contact info deleted] if your interested please get back to me. thank you so much for your time. sincerly, Angela S.
