A 6' 11" former NBA star-turned-DJ and Diddy walk into a bar.
There's no punchline here, as Lebanese DJ Rony Seikaly has joined forces with the hip-hop mogul for a new tech house track called "Won't Stop Now." According to a press release, the two have been friends and neighbors in Miami for years. When the storied Syracuse basketball star told Diddy he was developing his debut album, he agreed to hop onboard.
"It’s such an honor to have Diddy on my track," Seikaly said in a press statement. "We’ve talked about it for years and finally made it a reality."
The track features a personal voicemail message from Diddy to Seikaly, but the meat and potatoes of Diddy's contribution to "Won't Stop Now" comes in the form of a sample taken from his work on Nas' "Hate Me Now." That song dropped back in 1999, when he was affectionally known as Puff Daddy.
