The DDM magazine gave us a chance to illustrate some of our personality and share pieces of some of the elements and people who have inspired our collective journey," says Sean "Diddy" Combs. "Diddy Dirty Money features some of our all-time favorite articles, photographs mixed in with some of our own content... it's an accurate glimpse into our respective lives."
