(Newser) – Rapper Sean Combs—also variously known as Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, and Diddy—appears to be going retro and reverting back to Puff Daddy, which he hasn’t used since 2001, E! Online reports. His rep says there’s no change in the works, but Combs suggested otherwise on his MySpace page and on a new single.

“They call me Puff Daddy...he's back,” he says in his guest appearance on the O'Neal McKnight remix. “Yeah, you heard me right—I said Puff Daddy.”
