The album reached number 2 on the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, It is the only studio album under the P.Diddy name, and the first album by Sean Combs not to feature any guest appearances by Jay-Z or Lil Kim.Combs was executive producer of the reality TV show Making the Band, which appeared on MTV from 2002 to 2009.On August 16, 2005, Combs announced on Today that he was altering his stage name yet again; he would be calling himself "Diddy".
In November 2005, London-based musical artist and DJ Richard Dearlove, who had been performing under the name "Diddy" since 1992 – nine years before Combs started using even "P.
Diddy" – sought an injunction in the High Court of Justice in London.
He accepted an out-of-court settlement of £10,000 in damages and more than £100,000 in costs. and Combs orchestrated the 1994 robbery and shooting of Tupac, substantiating the claim with supposed FBI documents; the newspaper later retracted the story, acknowledging that the documents had been fabricated.
After a police investigation, Combs and fellow rapper Shyne were arrested for weapons violations and other charges. Lawyers for both sides, having agreed to keep the settlement terms secret, said that the matter was "resolved to the satisfaction of all parties".
The Saga Continues..., released on July 10 in North America, was the last studio album released by the joint venture.
An Entourage series representative announced that Combs would guest star on an episode during the 2010 season.
