But when you're an inside man to the powers that be in the two biggest Hip Hop conspiracy murders, only to the public are you "useless".

But in his defense, Diddy always cared about owning the label more so than being a rapper. He just makes songs to stay relevant today.

agreed

i could care less if he did anything to either of those guys though

im just answering purely from a listeners perspective

and youre right, diddy was more about owning the label, but hes put himself out there as an artist too much for me to overlook

If Biggie hadn't died, Puffy only releases one album and Biggie goes one to be the headliner of Bad Boy, with Ma$e and the Lox as the secondary acts. So I ain't tripping off Puffy, he was doing what he does. The headphones don't surprise me. Nothing about that was surprising or depressing, except Outkast. Snoop and Nas were too real for the Grammys. Grammys are for Kanye West.

Could have been as rich of a useless guy, but had Jerry Heller stealing his money.

And Puffy did some of the production. He also made the call to have Biggie rap over the Juicy beat when even Biggie didn't want to.

Yeah. He's absolutely worthless as an artist. But I'll still take his contributions a billion times over DJ Drama just talking shit, fucking up mixtapes and DJ Khaled. How those people make money literally angers me.

im with you on that.

i remember when khaled came out screaming and yelling over generic ass south beats.  shit was crazy how popular his music was.

By far. As far as Puffy the artist goes, I never thought he was nearly as bad as people made him out to be (at least in his hey-day).

Come on, how can you be comparing eazy and puff. Only similarity i see is, that they were both more into business than music. But when it comes to music, its disrespectfull to eazy.
