Puff Daddy remixed by Trent Reznor?

Originally published in MTV on February 1, 1998

On the heels of the "All About The Benjamins" rock remix currently the top-selling single in the country) Puffy has put out the call for another rock remix, this time for "Victory," the next single from his "No Way Out" album.

Reznor has already submitted a rock version of "Victory" as have Anthrax, the Deftones, Dinosaur Jr. mastermind J Mascis, and Fuzzbubble, the only rock act on Puffy's Bad Boy label. Korn and Megadeth are also poised to get in on the act as well.

According to artist and repertoire executives in Bad Boy's rock division, the "Victory" remix might be a combination of the rock tracks submitted, or simply Puffy's favorite track.

The executives also added that Puffy's interest in rock is no joke, and that he's looking for a denser, heavier rock sound for the "Victory" remix.

No word yet on a release date or video for the single, but we'll keep you posted.
