Before releasing his first solo album, Puff Daddy aka Sean "Puffy" Combs was famous as the producer of the Notorious B.I.G., Junior Mafia, Craig Mack, Lil' Kim, and many other rappers. As he was making his solo debut, the Notorious B.I.G. was murdered, and that loss weighs heavily on Puff's mind throughout No Way Out. Even though the album has some funky party jams scattered throughout, the bulk of the album is filled with fear, sorrow, and anger, and it's not only evident on the tribute "I'll Be Missing You" a duet with Faith Evans and 112 that is based on the Police's "Every Breath You Take" but also on gangsta anthems like "It's All About the Benjamins."

That sense of loss makes No Way Out a more substantial album than most mid-'90s hip-hop releases, and even if it has flaws -- there's a bit too much filler and it runs a little long -- it is nevertheless a compelling, harrowing album that establishes Puff Daddy as a vital rapper in his own right.

    Combs Joins Some Elite Company

    It's hard to imagine - I thought work of this calibre was a thing of the past. Apart from the last Sam Harris CD or the funk experiments of a mid-Eightie's Barry Manilow, I can't remember an album that sounded so original, fresh, and dynamic. This is a MUST for any serious music buff.

    It is just horrible

    I was given this CD as a birthday present when it first came out, I listened to it once and returned it, this CD is truely bad, its just sad that Biggie's last work was on this. Puffy can't flow to the same rythme as his beats and Mase sounds like he is reading off a cue card, its just choppy and doesn't mix well, on top of that he has no original backgrounds. Maybe its just the New York style, but I don't know anyone out here in the Bay that has liked this CD, so I know I am not alone.

    My One True Artist

    Puff Daddy realy expressed his feelings in the song 'I'll Be Missing You'.I think it is one of the best songs he has sung.It shows lots of meaning. The way he described his feelings towards his good friend Big Pappa.
