Hip-hop mogul Sean Combs has teamed up with ex-Danity Kane member DAWN RICHARD to form a new band called DIRTY MONEY.
Combs and Richard are joined by songwriter Kalenna, who completes the line up.
Dirty Money’s work will be heard on the star's' upcoming Last Train to Paris record, which is due for release in November (09).
Combs explains the project, telling Allhiphop.com, "Dirty Money is not about no drug money, illegal money, or anything negative.
"Dirty Money is a look, a sound, a movement, (and) a crew. For my new album, Last Train to Paris, I wanted to do something refreshing, something unique, something forward for myself as an artist…I’m a team player. I wanted to tell a love story…I couldn’t just tell the male’s point of view.
"I grew up listening to groups like Soul II Soul, Loose Ends, and it was always two guys and a girl. So let me flip it. Let me get two talented, bad divas to the left and the right of me.”
