On the tail of yesterday’s massive band drop which added everyone from Melissa Etheridge to Action Bronson to the fest’s lineup, today SXSW music announced a featured interview with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. Combs will discuss his musical career and his new venture which the festival describes as “a new multi-platform music channel focused on delivering a place for people to discover and share music across television, the web, and social media.”

The Web site for launched last year. It came onto many hip-hop enthusiasts’ radar when the site was the first to confirm rumors of a 2014 Outkast reunionthat took the Internet by storm just before Thanksgiving.

This will not be Diddy’s first trip to SXSW. He was here last year for a showcase/talent scout event at Emo’s. No performances have been announced yet, but surely they are coming.
