    It was a culmination of many things. I'm not much of a Joe Budden fan but if you haven't heard his tracks "Who Killed Hip Hop Part 1, 2, and 3" give em a listen. He's spot on in his assessment. You'll really get it if you're around his age though and watched all this crap evolve over the years. Props to him for sayin it.

    well the bad boy era certainly made hip hop more flashy and commercially appealing, especially since they were just turning old songs into beats and rapping over them, it was kind of beyond sampling, just took a song added a little bass and that was that and people liked it. I guess when dmx came out it got back to a little more hard street stuff, i wouldnt say puffy killed hip hop but he showed that you dont have to be good at rapping to sell millions of records thats for sure.

    YA I hated both of his albums. forever and press play, But he has produced a lot of decent songs. And i think he makes money off biggie unfairly.
