P. DIDDY LIFE AND CAREER TIMELINE



11th November 1970:  Puff Daddy, aka P. Diddy was born Sean Combs in Harlem, New York on 11th November 1970.
 

December 1991:  A celebrity basketball game and benefit Puff had organized turned tragic when a stampede occurred within the audience and 9 people died of "asphyxia due to compression of the chest." Poor security and organization were sited as the cause of the tragedy, and Puff Daddy had been in charge of both. The event devastated Puff Daddy, but soon he was feeling the effects of success with work on hit LPs by Mary J. Blige, Jodeci and Heavy D.
 

Early 1990's:  After working at Uptown Records throughout the early 90s and after being let go from the company, Puff Daddy established Bad Boy Entertainment whose clients eventually include the late Notorious B.I.G., 112, Total,Faith Evans, and Craig Mack. Bad Boy's first major hit came with the 1994 Craig Mack single, "Flava In Ya Ear." In a short 4 years, Bad Boy Entertainment sold approximately $100 million worth of recordings. Bad Boy Entertainment also made a multi-million dollar deal with Arista Records allowing the support of the label without impinging on artistic control.
 

1995:  Puff Daddy's production success with Bad Boy Entertainment continued with the Notorious B.I.G.'s emergence as a well-known rap artist with his LP Ready To Die and the single "Big Poppa." Bad Boy Entertainment could now boast an impressive line-up of acts, and multi-platinum success.
 

1995:  At the same time, a once friendly relationship with rapper 2Pac and Death Row's Suge Knight had turned into a war of words, comments, and accusations, especially in 2Pac's song "Hit 'Em Up." The East coast versus West coast rivalry continued after 2Pac was fatally shot, and many rumors connected Puff Daddy and the Notorious B.I.G. with his death.
 

Early 1996:  Puff Daddy began producing for other artists outside his own company including Boyz II Men, SWV, Mariah Carey, Lil' Kim, Babyface, New Edition, and Aretha Franklin.
 

November 1996:  Puff topped the Billboard Rap Singles chart for 9 weeks helping out Lil' Kim with "No Time."
 

February 1997:  Puff Daddy hit the Top 40 helped out by Mase with "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down." "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" topped the Billboard R&B; Singles Sales chart for 12 weeks.
 

March 1997:  Puff Daddy had big plans for the up-coming release of the Notorious B.I.G.'s next LP. But Puffy lost his close friend to gunshots. B.I.G.'s LP, Life After Death, was released 3 weeks later to great commercial and critical success. Puff Daddy's reaction to B.I.G.'s death (and the death of rival 2Pac the year before) was to leave the business - but friends talked him out of it. "When everything happened, I just wanted to give up. I didn't wanna work, I didn't wanna make music no more." Puff's single "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" topped the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart for 6 weeks, the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales chart for 7 weeks, the Billboard R&B; Singles chart for 6 weeks, the Billboard Dance Music Maxi-Singles Sales chart for 6 weeks, and the Billboard Rap Singles chart for 12 weeks.
 

April 1997:  The single "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" was certified 2x platinum. "I'll Be Missing You" topped the Billboard Dance Music Maxi-Singles Sales chart for 11 weeks.
 

June 1997:  Puff hit the Top 40 with his tribute to Notorious B.I.G. - "I'll Be Missing You" (with Faith Evans and 112). The track hit the Top 10 by the end of the month.

July 1997:  Puff Daddy released his own LP, No Way Out (shown as Puff Daddy & The Family) to equally commercial success, but much less critical enjoyment. Most of Puff Daddy's appearance on the charts were collaborations: from his own LP, from B.I.G.'s LP, or as a featured artists on other artist's LPs. One of Puff Daddy's protegees, Mase, showed up along side many of Puff Daddy's hits, including his first chart appearance, "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down." But the hit that crossed platforms and put Puff Daddy in the limelight with his tribute to his slain friend, "I'll Be Missing You" (which also featured Faith Evans and 112). The track also demonstrated a common theme in Puff Daddy's art of production - sampling a familiar 80s track (in this case The Police's "Every Breath You Take") and up-dating the lyrics with rap and hip hop. "I did it as a tribute to Biggie, so I feel like it came out of my love for him... whatever else it does, I'm happy," The money from the single was used to set up a fund for B.I.G.'s children. Also The single "I'll Be Missing You" was certified 3x platinum. Puffy hit the Top 40 helping out The Notorious B.I.G. and Mase with "Mo Money Mo Problems."

Puffy also appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
 

September 1997:  Puff Daddy performed "I'll Be Missing You" at the MTV Video Music Awards with Sting and the connection continued at the end of the year when Puffy remixed The Police classic "Roxanne" for their greatest hits collection.

It is Puff Daddy's sampling method that has brought him some criticism, not only for his own music, but for the tracks he has produced for others such as B.I.G., Busta Rhymes,L.L. Cool J, and Mariah Carey. Puff Daddy has stated about sampling: "I'm not afraid of using samples. That's how I started producing. I never played no instruments. I never programmed no drum machines. So if I was at a party and heard a record that I loved. I would figure out a way to bring that record to life. Make it like it was some brand new shit."
