Gunshots fired at Puff Daddy's Manhattan recording studio, Daddy's House

October 5, 1999 12:00 AM ET

At 1:30, Friday morning, shots were fired upon Puff Daddy's Manhattanrecording studio. Daddy's House, while the CEO himself was away in Florida. According to the New York Post, the gunshots were fired through the front door, and while no one was directly struck by the gunfire, glass shards from the shattered door injured one woman. The Post went on to suggest that the intended target of the shooting was Shyne, The Bad Boy MC who sounds remarkably like Biggie, who'd gotten into an altercation with the unknown assailants earlier that evening at a night club.

Lil' Kim and Lil' Cease were recording in the studio at the time, both of whom released a statement denying any other involvement with the shooting. Police have yet to determine suspects or a motive for the shooting.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
