Ladies and gentlemen, "Puff Daddy" is back. Sean Combs, who changed his stage name from Puff Daddy to P. Diddy in 2001, is going back to his roots. The hip hop mogul will now go by Puff Daddy once again.
Combs, 44, made the announcement via Twitter in a bid to promote his upcoming album MMM.
For the record, I did not change my name. I always have been and always will be PUFF DADDY! :) Be cool Man lol #MMM #BigHomie RT!!!!While the Sean John designer says he did not change his name, it's clear from his Twitter handle and other social media accounts, that he has in fact gone by Diddy for the last several years.
