Diddy’s “Avant-Garde” Album Cover For Last Train To Paris

2 Jun

When word got out that Diddy was going to do a concept album; it’s safe to say that everybody had their doubts that it would be a smash hit. Diddy(who’s also been performing under the Dirty Money moniker) decided to leave his celebrity connections behind when it came to shooting the cover for Last Train To Paris. According to Rap-Up.com, Interscope Records contacted Australian photographer Jarrod “Jrod” Kimber for one of his photos that he snapped at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris during a 2008 vacation. After repeated attempts to reach him, they finally connected and the label purchased the photo from him.

The reaction to the cover for the album has been very negative surprisingly(read the comments on Rap-Up). Some fans are praising Diddy for going in a more “indie”,”avant-garde” direction, but a lot of other die-hard hip hop are not happy. Whether you love it or hate it, Diddy’s Last Train To Paris drops on June 28th. Remember kids, the cover doesn’t always equal hit record. Let’s wait and see what the finish product sounds like
