Welcome to another chapter in Howell Raines' bizarre ongoing fascination with the hip-hop/rap scene: the NYT follows Pianist star Adrien Brody out for a night on the town and finds him hanging with P-Diddy (yo) who is "dressed in diamonds and a baggy yellow tracksuit like a very rich 4-year-old." Brody had made a CD for P-Diddy after taking mom and dad to Nobu and wanted to drop it off. The NYT reports that P-Diddy liked what he heard and "began doing that exaggerated nod to the beats that signals either 'I have no strength left in my neck' or 'I really groove on that.'"
