Diddy Is Retiring From Music to Do What?

He's about to make a big change.

Published May 1, 2016

After building one of the most powerful empire's in hip hop for over 20 years, Diddy has decided to take an indefinite sabbatical from the music business. Turns out, the mogul has his sights on conquering another industry altogether.

In a recent interview with Cigar Aficionado he says, "I'm going to put out my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films." 

A move to Hollywood will happen after he drops his next album, No Way Out 2. "I want to stop at a great place," the rapper and producer said. "And a final album is a great place to stop. I want to take a victory lap, to do a world tour and really enjoy it one last time."

This isn't the first time Diddy has spoken about a possible retirement only to stage a comeback, but maybe this time he really is done.

The music mogul has been focusing energy on a lot more than just music. Check out his recent humanitarian effort, to open a brand new charter school in Harlem, with BET Breaks:
