Sean 'P Diddy' Combs is possibly the most famous rapper alive today, but his new album suggests that he's far better at self-publicity than he is at making original music. Frankly, The Saga Continues is a tiresome, lazy effort that buries its few effective moments under an avalanche of aimless jamming, stilted deliveries and unforgivably cliched lyrics. The self-styled bad boy has organised a host of guest appearances, with the Neptunes, Faith Evans and Big Azz all popping up to lend a hand to their gangsta ally. Their loud, shouty contributions can't disguise the basic weakness of the material, however, which makes Combs's outlandish boasting sound particularly inappropriate. Anyone who suspects him of being an outright misogynist, meanwhile will find nothing here to change their mind. One to avoid.
