P. Diddy and Bad Boy Records Present: We Invented the Remix

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Lead Performers: Sean P. Diddy Combs, Missy Elliott, Ginuwine, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Beanie Siegel, Various Artists; Producer (group): Bad Boy

On this set, Surnames-a-Lot remixes tracks from Notorious B.I.G., 112, and Mary J. as if they were funky Tinkertoys – leaving out a bass line here, dropping in a new arrangement there, adding cameo raps for good measure. These freelance gigs are as playfully imaginative as Sean Combs’ solo material is bereft of creativity.
