A Family Affair
|Title:||A Family Affair: The Unauthorized Sean "Puffy" Combs Story|
|Publisher:||Ballantine Books, New York|
The New York Times calls Puff Daddy "a rapper, a dancer, a mourner, a preacher, a trash-talking homeboy." He's also one of the most successful music artists of our time. As CEO of the hottest, most controversial label of the decade--Bad Boy Entertainment--he's taken hip-hop out of the underground, birthing the careers of such powerhouse artists as The Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans, Craig Mack, and Total. He is the producer of choice for top-sellers like Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, and Boyz II Men. And if this weren't enough, following the tragic death of his comrade The NotoriousB.I.G., Puff Daddy overcame his grief and took center stage, dazzling us with his fancy footwork, irresistible hooks, and flashy videos.
So just how did one young, black, connectionless kid from East Harlem revolutionize an entire industry? This candid and moving book tells all. From Sean Comb's birth in the projects to his life as a devoted father, from the phenomenal success of his multiplatinum debut album No Way Out to the founding of his Daddy House charity and his latest business ventures, A FAMILY AFFAIR reveals how this sexy, enterprising talent minted the hot genre known as "hip-hop soul" and created a multimillion dollar empire.
