Sean "Diddy" Combs recently announced his retirement from music, and in an interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine, he clearly seems to want to go out with a bang.

"I'm going to put out my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films. I want to stop at a great place," Combs said. "And a final album is a great place to stop. I want to take a victory lap, to do a world tour and really enjoy it one last time." 

Combs says that his final album, No Way Out 2, will be his best and that he plans to "grab attention" with it. The father of six also spoke about the legacy he plans to leave behind, one that will of course include his music.

"When I'm gone, only the songs will survive. I know I'm making music that will live on. I don't go into the studio just to be hot or to hear myself on the radio," Diddy said. "Michael Jackson, Tupac, Biggie—part of them lives on in their music, even though they're not here anymore. That's really deep, man. The only thing like that is religion."
