The WWE 2K17 soundtrack is loaded with amazing tunes brought to you by one of the biggest names in the music industry. Personally curated by legendary hip-hop recording artist, producer, entrepreneur and WWE enthusiast Sean “Diddy” Combs a.k.a. Puff Daddy, the soundtrack will feature 13 unique songs from established and emerging artists that span multiple music genres, including hip-hop, indie and alternative rock, heavy metal and electronic dance.
“I am a huge WWE fan. I love the intensity and the competition and I wanted fans to feel that energy in the soundtrack for WWE 2K17,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs. “While prepping for the upcoming Bad Boy 20-Year Family Reunion Tour, I’ve been thinking a lot about the past and the artists that inspired me. I mixed some of my favorites with some of the best new acts in the game today to create something really special.”
Puff Daddy emerged on the music scene in 1993, founding Bad Boy Entertainment and quickly finding success as executive producer for three of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time: The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die and Life After Death, as well as Mary J. Blige’s My Life. In 1997, he released his debut album, No Way Out, which delivered a host of Billboard Hot 100 hits, including “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down,” “I’ll Be Missing You,” “It’s All About the Benjamins” and “Been Around The World.” The album won a GRAMMY Award for Best Rap Album and was certified septuple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales exceeding seven million copies. Puff Daddy has also seen success across many entrepreneurial endeavors, including the hit MTV reality television series Making the Band, popular Sean John clothing line, CÎROC Ultra Premium vodka partnership, Revolt Media & TV platform and various acting roles.
