Puffy Hits The Studio With David Bowie


debuting on the Billboard Charts at number 2, only two

weeks ago with The Saga Continues, P.Diddy

is still in the news. He was in the studio earlier this

month with the legendary David Bowie recording a remake

to Bowie's 1985 hit "This is Not America" for

the "Training Day" soundtrack.

The movie

is an upcoming Denzel Washington flick where Washington

is a cop schooling a rookie cop (Ethan Hawke) to the streets.

Bowie is recording live vocals and Diddy is not relying

so much on samples as he did when using Bowie's track

"Let's Dance" for "Been Around the World"

on his No Way Out debut disc. The soundtrack is

to feature cuts by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Trick Daddy, C-Murder,

The Lox, Tupac and the Outlawz Gangstarr, Nelly, Cypress

Hill, Pharoah Monch, The CD hits stores on September 11th

while the movie hits theatres on September 21st.

In other P.

Diddy related news, he is joining Russell Simmons' Hip

Hop Summit Action Network, a product of last month's Hip

Hop Summit that took place in New York. Their first task

on the agenda is to make sure that Hip Hop has fair political

representation. Simmons, the Chairman of the Network will

be speaking at the "Hip Hop and Political Empowerment

Panel" at the Black Congressional Caucus on September
