Throwback Thursday: Puff Daddy & The Family [VIDEO]
For today's Throwback Thursday, I had to grab one of my all time favorite Hip-Hop songs and videos: "It's All About The Benjamins". I was actually in Japan when the song first came out on a DJ Clue mixtape. Sean "Diddy" Combs was still using the Puff Daddy moniker at the time. The beat was the first thing that grabbed me. It also was my first time hearing Diddy's then new Bad Boy Records signees, The Lox.
The original version was just Diddy and two thirds of the Lox (Jadakiss & Sheek Louch). But the remix that appeared on his album, No Way Out, also featured Lil Kim and the late Notorious B.I.G. There were also several version of the video that aired as well, including a rock remix (below) and a tap dance version (above) which depicts Combs and tap legend Savion Glover in a battle. This one is truly a classic!
