Puffy's Pajama Bash

Tuesday, November 4, 2014, legendary hip-hop mogul Puff Daddy celebrated his 45th Birthday with a pajama party at his Beverly Hills mansion. He partied with several of his famous acquaintances including French Montana, Snoop Dogg, and Jermaine Dupri. Puff Daddy documented his epic birthday bash on his Instagram.

French Montana and Khloé Kardashian surprised Puff Daddy with a $75,000 pearl white Cadillac Escalade. Puff Daddy thanked the duo on his Instagram and twitter accounts.

Top 5 Puff Daddy Collaborations

1. "It's All About the Benjamins" featuring The LOX, Lil’ Kim and Notorious B.I.G. is Puff Daddy’s greatest song. It contains samples from "I Did It for Love" performed by the Love Unlimited and The Jackson 5’s "It's Great to Be Here." Produced by Deric “D-Dot” Angelettie, “It’s All About the Benjamins” is the ultimate party song that never gets old.

2. "Victory" featuring The Notorious B.I.G. and Busta Rhymes is the best song from Puff Daddy’s debut studio album, No Way Out. The song heavily sampled the Bill Conti song "Going the Distance," which is very appealing to fans of the Rocky movie. The song is very cinematic, gothic, and energetic. As a listener, I could feel the emotions of the song.

3. "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down” featuring Ma$e was the perfect rap song that merges old school rhythm with a futuristic sound. The song heavily samples Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message" and an interpolating of Matthew Wilder's "Break My Stride." It was the first song from Puff Daddy’s debut album, No Way Out. The single transformed Puff Daddy into a rap star.

4. “Hate Me Now” featuring Nas is one the greatest rap songs ever. The backbeat is inspired by, and contains some samples from, Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. Puff Daddy put his Midas touch on the chorus. Even though this was Nas’ single from his album, I Am…, the song exudes Puff Daddy. “Hate Me Now” reminds me of “Victory” with its energy and fast-paced sound. The song is very much like an anthem for those that are succeeding.

5. "Mo Money Mo Problems" featuring Notorious B.I.G. and Ma$e is one of the most popular songs in hip-hop history. Utilizing the sample of "I'm Coming Out" by R&B diva Diana Ross, this radio-friendly jam describes Puff Daddy’s extravagant lifestyle. “Mo Money Mo Problems” topped the Billboard 200 when it was released posthumously on Notorious B.I.G’s second studio album, Life After Death, just weeks after his death.
