Re: Hip Hop Discussion Thread
He should be grateful that he discovered Biggie Smalls, otherwise, yeah...he would've probably just had Ma$e and no disrespect to Ma$e but yeah...
I wonder if Biggie would have ever left Bad Boy and Diddy? It sure would have been interesting.
Puff did a lot more before discovering Biggie.
Everyone already knew who Puff was before Biggie came out. He was integral in the early careers of Jodeci and Mary J Blige especially, and he had enough juice in the industry to even start Bad Boy up and blow up his first 2 artists.
I'm not defending his business practices at all, he's obviously shady and screws over his artists.
As for why he had to be "all in the videos, on the records" (Suge), he definitely overdid it. But he still gives us some great adlibs and rants, like on the above Long Kiss Goodnight. "And we ain't talking about no other rappers, we talking about YOU mothafucka!" I like Pac, but that was dope.
