Victory & Nine Inch Nails
Daddy's forthcoming video co-strarring Busta Rhymes with cameo
appearances by Danny DeVito and Dennis Hopper premieres on MTV, BET
and the BOX on March 31. ``Victory'' is a post-World War III urban decay,
directed by Marcus Nispel. The video opens on a futuristic, gothic, dark and
rainy city. Puff Daddy holds the weight of the world on his shoulders. He
speaks for those who cannot speak for themselves, the oppressed, the
downtrodden and the undesirable. The evil corporate institutions headed by
Dennis Hopper now control the fate of the underpriviledged. Puff Daddy, with
help from his friend Busta Rhymes, looks to tear it all apart.
In addition to the video, the single will feature new and exciting re-mixes and
once again Puff Daddy crosses over into an entirely new genre of music.
Already successful with the number one single ``It's All About the Benjamins''
re-mix, Puffy has taken it one step further by enlisting the help of industrial
king-pin Trent Reznor and electro-spin-king Goldie. Each have put their own
flavor into the already hard-hitting song, ``Victory.''
The Trent Reznor re-mix will hit record stores first and features some of
Trent's master mixing skills and industrial-heads will be running to the stores to
hear this latest version because Trent has basically taken the Puffy version and
turned it into his own.
Goldie's re-mix screams of his ability to mix and sample. Goldie took time out
from his current release Saturnz Returns, in which Goldie worked with Noel
Galagher, to put together the charged ``Victory'' re-mix. Saturnz Return and
the ``Victory'' re-mix are Goldie's first releases in three years.
Both Trent and Goldie make an interesting addition to the mixes. They have
created an exciting and suprisingly different follow-up to the re-mix of ``It's All
About The Benjamins,'' (Which featured Dave Grohl, Rob Zombie, Anthrax
and Puffy's own rock band Fuzz Bubble). One can only ask, ``What's next for
