A time when rap needed a change
You had to know when rap was getting big, it needed to change. What were these rappers gonna do, keep living in the ghetto? Of course not, they need cars, and not normal cars, Bentleys. They needed houses, and not just any house, a mansion. They also need expensive designer clothes, diamonds, and gold to hang off of their bodies. The kids need a role model, and why not Puff Diddy. He's a very talented musician. To think P. Daddy put together all these beats is amazing. They are great, and the rapping is better, and very insightful.This is a groundbreaking record when rap was finally starting to get better.
Fluffy is one of the main reasons why Hip-Hop sucks today
This album is a complete piece of sh*t. Pretty much everything Fluff did after the terrible death of Biggie was crap. The only thing I'll ever give him props for is bringing up and mentoring Biggie, but serioulsy how hard could that have been? Biggie was a once in a lifetime talent that was waiting to blow, anyone could have made him into a star.
I do like his production on Big's albums, I'll give him that. But then you realize that (almost) all of his beats are straight ripped-off loops, and the choruses and hooks he employs are jacked from popular '60's-'70's soul/funk tracks. His production is all straight ripped-off in a totally unimaginitive form. Yes, I know, Hip-Hop was built on sampling, but everyone else does things CREATIVELY, fluff doesn't have a creative bone in his body.
All his big hits (the beats AND hooks) were unimaginitive rip-offs of old songs that everyone knows already. "Been around the world" - straight jacked. "DIDDY" or whatever that sh*t track was called, was jacked from BDP's "JIMMY." "Bad Boy" the Mase track, I could go on and on.
***The real reason I wrote this review was to let the world know something that is truly disgraceful. We all know how fluff brutally jacked Sting for the track "I'll be Missing You," which pretty much angered the whole world. That track was supposed to be a heartfelt tribute to his fallen homie Biggie (R.I.P. Big Man!) BUT DID YOU KNOW THAT HE DIDN'T EVEN WRITE THE F*CKING LYRICS!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!?! SAUCE MONEY WAS EMPLOYED BY FLUFFY TO WRITE THE LYIRCS FOR THE "EULOGY" OF FLUFFY BEST FRIEND. I READ THAT IN AN ISSUE OF THE SOURCE AND I WAS FLOORED. THAT'S LIKE PAYING A STRANGER TO WRITE YOUR FAREWELL SPEECH AT YOUR BEST-FRIEND'S FEUNERAL.***
Pass on that info, please. I can't stand anything fluff does and he get waaaay too many undeserved and artificial props in this world. He is a corner-stone in Hip-Hop's selling out demise...F*ck you fluffy, you piece of sh*t. Peace.
I'm sorry son I cant give a rating higher than one star to a dumb as n**** that don't write his own s*** at all. Who's beats is replayed s***. Sampled like hell and put it out like he's a music artist. And constantly tryin' to eat off a dead rapper. F*** Puffy, f*** bad-boy, you n****'s fell off in 97'.Take JD's idea, grab some talentless young mu'f*****'s and try to eat of them. Oh I forgot, You got the band and Dream. Oh, and you a dumb ass too, keep payin that child support for kids that don't belong to you. Stupid f***.
