Puffy Unveils "Roxanne" As "No Way Out" Tour Kicks Off

November 7 [7:55 EDT] -- As we told you earlier this week, Puffy Combs is set to unleash his remix of the Police's breakthrough 1979 hit "Roxanne" on November 25.[300k Audio File]-->

Of course, Puffy's no stranger to the Police; the band's 1983 hit "Every Breath You Take" was the basis for Puffy's Notorious B.I.G. tribute "I'll Be Missing You." [1.2MB QuickTime]

About the only surviving element of the original "Roxanne" that makes it to the remix is Sting's pleading vocal, as the song's original instrumentation has been replaced by an up front beat with Puffy serving up the occasional vocal interjection.

Puffy kicks off his "No Way Out" tour with Lil' Kim, Usher, Mase, Foxy Brown, Busta Rhymes, and the Family on Friday in Albany, NY and will cruise through the U.S. until Christmas before heading off to Europe early next year.
