You got it twisted a bit there Heinz.

Biggie was not the downfall of hip hop...Puffy and his shiny ass suit pants were the downfall. Puffy killed good hip hop.

And yes 36 Chambers is an absolut classic!
Let me rephrase that... i love Biggie, and wouldn't want it to sound like i'm putting it on him

It's because of Biggie's rise that Puffy became a factor

Without Biggie, Puffy is just another Teddy Riley.... and even if you remember who Teddy Riley is, you really got to strain your brain to recall any of his contributions to music.... that's who Puffy is SUPPOSED to be.

Biggie legitimised him in a way he never should have been... and THAT was the downfall of hip hop
