Music News

Diddy’s “The Hitmen” production team is back with a new member.

“What You Want” by Total and Ma$e, “Real Love (Remix)” by Mary J. Blige, and Notorious B.I.G. – do these ring a bell? If so, you should be on game about the strings, synths and drums behind these staple tracks. Back in the ’90s, Diddy housed a collective of Bad Boy producers that worked on tracks together to create grandiose moments in hip-hop and R&B music, leading to 21 platinum and gold records.
