On Wednesday, reports came in that Puffy either has shut down Bad Boy Records or will be soon enough. Whether the story is true or not, it got us thinking about Bad Boy’s legacy. Looking back over the years, every one of us can recall a handful of successful Bad Boy singles we grew up on and called our own. Despite the inkling to think most of them featured the label’s Notorious superstar, many were actually songs Puffy helped pull out of other artists from his versatile roster and distribute to the world.
Whether Puff had anyone’s best intentions in mind aside from his own is always up for debate, but we’re sure you’ll agree these were some of the best non-Chris-Wallace-associated singles Bad Boy has to offer.
