    The Good Makes up for the Bad

    Though definitely not his best CD, overall Diddy does a pretty good job. If someone had been able to convince him to leave off the drunken, rambling, "Diddy Speaks" interlude, the boring "I Hear Voices" and what could arguably be one of the worst songs ever made, "PE 2000" I might have given this review the 5th star. Still the other tracks more than make up for the few glitches. My favorites include "I'll Do This For You" (which sounds a little laced with Mase), "Pain" (a bit reminiscent of Slick Rick's "Children Story" and clearly a song he wrote when he was entertaining the thought of making George Pelecanos' novel 'King Suckerman' into a feature film) and finally "Angels with Dirty Faces" which has the feel of an explosive action movie packed into under six minutes. As a final point, I couldn't review this without mentioning the absolutely hilarious "Player-Haters Hotline" interlude. And I have to point out the irony of songs like "Do You Like It... Do You Want It" where he and Jay Z rap about among other things, the ridiculous notion of being involved in crime (Do I need to mention the felony charges they were both facing by the end of December 1999?) and "Reverse" which features Shyne, G-Dep, Cee-Lo, Busta Rhymes and Sauce Money sharing what their lives might be like had they not reached success. For Shyne, at least success didn't make that much of a difference.

    Puff Daddy's Here to Stay

    Puffy's rappin' on 'no way out' was helped along with the presence of the Notorious B.I.G. On 'forever' however, Puffy does it better without Biggie. Though Biggie puts in an explosive appearance on Real Niggas, this is by no way one of the best tracks. Tracks such as 'Is This The End 11', 'Satisfy You' and 'I'll Do This For You', are all prime examples of Puffy's solo genius. Every track is pure quality and features some fantastic cameo appearances by Twista and Bizzy Bone. Puffy blends a subtle mix of smooth R'n'B rap and up tempo rap to give both aspects of the multi-talented rap star. Forever is quite different from no Way Out which really shows how rap has changed over the years. On Best Friend, with Mario Winans, Puffy delivers a fabulous song which shows rap isn't all about drive-bys and drugs. The song is dedicated to Jesus and I hope all rap critics hear this song as a voice for the new generation of Hip-Hop. If you ever doubted Puffy's ability without Biggie for one minute, listen to forever and you'll be eating your words. This album shows Puffy, with or without Biggie, is still one of the kings of Hip-Hop. The only way I can sum up this album is, buy now!!!
