Shaun Boothe - Unauthorized Sean Combs

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Shaun Boothe
Album:
Hip Hop in 3D

Due to some, shall we say outlandish, behavior in recent years, many critics have called Sean Combs a sellout, but today rapper Shaun Boothe will let you be the judge. On his new track Unauthorized Sean Combs, Boothe draws on some deep historical hip-hop knowledge and presents the life story of the artist known simply as Puff Daddy/Puffy/Diddy. While a collection of classic Bad Boy samples play in the background (see if you can name them all), lyrically Boothe leaves no stone unturned, starting with his young life, his father’s murder and how he got his famous nickname (“…as a kid he’d always puff out his chest when he’s angry”) and then intricately chronicling his rise through the hip-hop ranks and of course touching on his historical partnership with Biggie: “A diamond in the rough, Puff polished it.” What can I say? Boothe’s like a hip-hop Ken Burns. Fans can expect more fresh biographies when Boothe’s album Hip Hop in 3D drops in January 2010.
