  1. Dude never did a damn beat in his life. Maybe one or two, but name the last beat Puffy did that was all him.

  2. Thats the real definition of a producer…Puff has an excellent ear for the hits…the producer who just makes the beats..only exist in hip hop.

  3. It kills me how dudes wont give this guy the credit he is do. Most of the guys who doubt Puff are purists like me : we like dudes who stay mad creative regardless of commercial success. I feel that, but how can you deny the quincy jones of rap? Without Puff, you might have never heard Biggy! The guy has a keen ear for what sounds good, and although he’s no sample chopper, he understands what will move people, and he has a gazillion hits. I wish I had a dude like Puff in my crew.

  4. preach puff preach.
