Mariah Gets Help From Puffy

Feb. 11 [7:55 EST] -- Mariah Carey is starting work on her next album, and among the hired help she's importing for the project are Bad Boy Entertainment mogul-turned-recording artist Sean "Puffy" Combs and members of A Tribe Called Quest.

Combs, known mostly for his public feud of words with Death Row CEO Marion "Suge" Knight, now has a thriving music career of his own. He is currently ranked at number five himself on this week's "Billboard" singles chart with "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down," a track from his upcoming "Hell Up In Harlem" album.
