Puff Daddy To Revive Magazine
Dec. 05, 1998
NEW YORK (AP) _ Sean ``Puff Daddy'' Combs is adding publisher to his growing list of titles.
The rapper, producer and hip-hop icon is investing millions to help revive the defunct ``Notorious'' magazine, said David Anthony, a co-publisher of the magazine.
The magazine shares the name of Combs' friend, the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. Four issues were published between November 1997 and July.
Anthony said the rapper's ``vision is to create an entertainment empire in the 21st century.'' The amount of Combs' contribution was not disclosed, but Anthony said it ``was in the multimillions.''
A prototype featuring ``the 25 most notorious people of '98,'' hits newsstands Monday. The target audience will be 20- to 40-year-olds who are affluent, urban and media-savvy.
