Mark Ronson's P. Diddy tip

Super-producer Mark Ronson once got a £50 tip from P. Diddy.

While Mark has made his name recently through his collaborations with some of the UK's hottest singers including Amy Winehouse, he revealed he lived in New York in the early 90s and worked as a DJ for £25-a-night at various clubs.

It was at one of these hotspots Mark was spotted by P. Diddy, who liked his music so much he decided to give him his details.

Mark said: "The first time I met P. Diddy he said, 'I like the way you DJ' and gave me a $100 bill with his number on it.

Mark admits he was so pleased with the bill that he framed it and put it up on his wall, but he was eventually so desperate for cash he was forced to spend it.

He added: "I saw P. Diddy this year and reminded him of the story - and he gave me another $100 bill!"

Mark is currently producing the new album by British band Kaiser Chiefs.
