Collection marks rap label's tenth anniversary

February 24, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Seven years after the murder of the Notorious B.I.G., Bad Boy records salutes the revered rapper with a new compilation that puts him at the center of the label's success. Bad Boy's 10th Anniversary: The Hits! also marks the one decade milestone achieved by the label launched by hip-hop mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs.

The set kicks off with a new cut, "Victory 2004," which pairs a Notorious B.I.G. vocal with rhymes from P. Diddy, Busta Rhymes, 50 Cent and 50's G Unit mate Lloyd Banks. The set also includes a new bonus track from former Bad Boy rapper Mase and eleven other rap and R&B cuts from the label by the likes of Black Rob, Craig Mack and 112.

But the collection revolves around Notorious B.I.G., who is represented by "Hypnotize," "Big Poppa," "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems" and a remix of "Only You" with 112. The set also includes Diddy's hit tribute to Biggie, "I'll Be Missing You."

The album will be packaged with an hour-long DVD that features interviews with P. Diddy and several long-form videos of Bad Boy songs.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
