So, Here is the best example of Puffy being of questionable character.
Back when Biggie died, Puffy came out with a tribute song to him called "Ill be missing you". The only problem was that he didnt write it. Puffy HIRED Sauce Money to write the lyrics. The beat is another jacking of an 80's song. So what did Puff really do besides cash that check? He couldnt even write his own lyrics to pay respect to his recently murdered best friend...but I guess he can release a song he didnt write under the guise that he is personally sending a heart felt message of loss and make money off it. Thats fucked up.
Puffy has always been a beat hack who has always hired people to write lyrics for him. you cannot say the same about RZA.
I don't kow why everyone is so offended that Puffy didn't write that song. Dre didn't write the song about his brother on 2001
As for Puffy jackin' shit, sorry i don't see it.
As for myself: I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing sacred about myself or any human being, that we were all machines, doomed to collide and collide and collide.
