Biography

Puff Daddy started as an intern for record companies. He eventually became the A&R rep for Uptown Records. Here his most popular work was with Mary J. Blidge. After that, Puff headed over to Arista Records where he started his own “Bad Boy Entertainment”. The first artists on Bad Boy were Craig Mack and Notorious BIG. Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs and Bad Boy Records was starting to get popular.

For a while, Puff Daddy found himself in the middle of one of the biggest east coast/west coast fights: Bad Boy Records Vs. Death Row Records. Basically it was Puff Daddy & Biggie Smalls Vs. Suge Knight & Tupac Shakur. This started when 2pac was shot for the first time in New York. (2Pac blamed his shooting on Biggie Smalls among other East Coast rappers) Before this, 2Pac & Biggie Smalls were friends. This was a big incident in the east coast-west coast situation. In 1996, Tupac Shakur was shot & killed. Shortly after this, Suge Knight was thrown in jail for a probation violation. Death Row Records didn’t turn out to be as “untouchable” as they said they were. (Puffy Daddy & Family made no direct involvement in this east coast-west coast fight and Puff Daddy now gives shout-outs to 2Pac saying R.I.P.

1997 was a big year for Bad Boy Entertainment. In early 1997, Puff Daddy was doing vocals for a change and Bad Boy had a new family member who went by the name of Mase. “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” was a huge hit from Puff Daddy & Mase.
