Via Brians World : Sources report that Diddy’s Bad Boy Records has partnered with Epic Records for a distribution deal. Head of Epic Records, L.A Reid had this to say in a press conference:
“Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs aka Puff Daddy and I have been musical collaborators since the 1990s, when we both ran independent record labels, myself with LaFace and soon after, Puffy with Bad Boy.Over the years, we not only enjoyed incredible success together, but we also became lifelong friends. Today, of course, Puffy is truly in a league all his own, continuing to influence culture and ignite musical revolutions time and time again. He’s a true innovator and I could not be more excited to join forces once again.”

To collaborate with LA Reid is to collaborate with the very best.”
