After starting the label, both Craig Mack and The Notorious B.I.G. quickly released hit singles, followed by similarly successful LPs, particularly B.I.G.'s Ready to Die. N. Diddy, as he was then known, began signing more acts to Bad Boy, including, Dream, Carl Thomas, Faith Evans, Father MC, 112 and Total, as well as producing for Jodeci, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Lil' Kim, TLC, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, SWV, Aretha Franklin and others, and forming The Hitmen, an in-house production team. Ma$e and D-Block (known as "The L.O.X." at the time) soon joined Bad Boy, just as a widely publicized rivalry with the West Coast's Death Row Records was beginning. Puff Daddy and Biggie were criticized and parodied by Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight, in songs and interviews during the mid-1990s. Shakur was murdered in September 1996.Six months later, on March 9, 1997, the Notorious B.I.G. was murdered weeks before the release of his most successful album, Life After Death. Puff Daddy has never married but is the father of five biological children and one through association.His former girlfriend Kimberly Porter gave birth to a son, Quincy Jones Brown, (December 1991) with 80s New Jack Swing romantic singer/producer Al B Sure, whom Puff Daddy later claimed. Puff Daddy's first biological offspring is a son, Justin Combs (December 1993), from his relationship with high school sweetheart designer Misa Hylton-Brim. His second child is son Christian Casey Combs (April 1998) with Kim Porter. Puff Daddy's third child (and first daughter) is Chance Chapman Combs (August 2006) with Sarah Chapman . After initially denying the paternity of Chance, DNA tests revealed that Puff Daddy was in fact her father. Four months later Kim birthed Puff Daddy twin daughters D'Lila Star Combs and Jessie James Combs (December 21, 2006). Sarah Chapman and Kim Porter were pregnant at the same time. In July 2007 Puff Daddy's rep confirms that the couple split. Puff Daddy was given the key to the city of Chicago. October 13, 2006. Puff Daddy's godson, Aaron Reid, who is the son of L.A. Reid starred on MTV show My Super Sweet 16. Puff Daddy performed at the party for his godson. Diddy's latest LP, entitled Press Play, featuring notable collaborations with, among others, Christina Aguilera, Twista, Just Blaze, Pharrell, Brandy, Mary J. Blige and Keyshia Cole was released on October 17, 2006. During 1994-1995, Diddy also helped produce songs for TLC's CrazySexyCool, which was one of the decades most popular RnB album. Songs he helped produced include If I was Your Girlfriend and Can I Get A Witness. It was reported that Diddy would be singing on all the tracks of this album, but that was proven false as, on the album's first single, "Come To Me" (featuring Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls), he did not sing at all, but rather did his traditional rapping. He does sing on the third single, "Last Night" (featuring Keyshia Cole). "Tell Me" (featuring Christina Aguilera) was released as the second single. An interesting fact about this song is that it was a demo song for his Making the Band 3 girl group, Danity Kane, as seen in the second season of the MTV show. He was asking fans on his MySpace page to help him choose the fourth single. "Through the Pain (She Told Me)" (featuring Mario Winans) was chosen as the fourth single.
