SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMB's former butler Farnsworth Bentley is adding to his impressive resume by signing to pal Kanye West's new record label.

The smartly-dressed personality has already launched fashion and umbrella lines, a film and TV career - with a presenter role on American showbiz news show ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT - and a starring role in the new Fat Albert movie.

And now, after performing a rap on West's new single NEW WORKOUT PLAN, Bentley, real name DEREK WATKINS, has been offered a contract and plans to record a rap album with the Chicago, Illinois, rapper/producer.

West says, "He's one of the illest MCs I've heard in years."
