After releasing final album, No Way Out 2, Sean 'Diddy' Combs will focus on acting, according to a new interview with the rapper.

"I'm going to put out my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films … I want to stop at a great place," he tells Cigar Aficionado magazine (quote via People). "And a final album is a great place to stop.

I want to take a victory lap, to do a world tour and really enjoy it once last time."

Diddy -- who is on the cover of the magazine's June issue (hitting newsstands May 3) -- added: "When I'm gone, only the songs will survive. I know I'm making music that will live on. I don't go into the studio just to be hot or to hear myself on the radio.

Michael Jackson, Tupac, Biggie -- part of them lives on in their music, even though they're not here anymore. That's really deep, man. The only thing like that is religion."

He previously mentioned that No Way Out 2 would be his last album in late 2015. At publication time, the album's release date is unknown, though it is expected to drop some time in 2016.
