CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP Trailer: Puff Daddy and the True Story of Bad Boy Records

You've gotta hand it to Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs (yes, I still call him Puff Daddy); he is always on message. Twenty -four years ago he founded Bad Boy Records, which became the preeminent hip-hop record label, catapulting the genre into the mainstream airwaves, taking hits from the '80s and making sounds so crazy. He himself proclaimed his own legend, literally before anyone else had a chance to do so.

He's been diligent about keeping the legacy of the label alive, and that of his comrade Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace, who was killed at the height of fame in 1997. So it comes as no surprise, at least to me, that there is now a documentary chronicling the label's journey (which is likely synonymous with Combs's story), and that Combs's face is the only image on the film's poster.


Directed by Daniel Kaufman, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story is an exclusive look behind the scenes at the history of Bad Boy through a complex portrait of the label’s mastermind, Sean “Diddy" Combs, as he tries to reunite his Bad Boy Family in the course of a frantic three week rehearsal period. As they prepare to celebrate the label’s 20th anniversary, the film traces Bad Boy’s emergence in Harlem and Brooklyn, follows it’s meteoric rise, explores the tragic killing of Biggie Smalls, and celebrates Bad Boy’s influence in reshaping music, fashion, marketing and culture.

"I knew this was a story that should be shared with the world," Combs states in the press announcement. I missed this at Tribeca Film Festival last month, so my curiosity is now heightened.

CAN'T STOP WON'T STOP: A BAD BOY STORY will be available on Apple Music on June 25.

Sick of rappers "inc" said...

"I want the phantom".... jeez what a materialistic wanker. What about I want the "amount of money" that the phantom costs so I can provide for the local, disadvantaged community. Another perspective on rappers thinking they make music and they really just make, rap. They prey on gullible souls who "want" everything, their plastic chains give hope to some kid in a housing project who thinks if he is a "real gangster" then he is successful too. There is not one rapper who deserves respect. And just because I know this is racially charged "will write anything glorious about people if they are black" website - Billie Holliday deserves respect. Elle Fitzgerald deserves respect, Nina Simone IS respect. They woudl be so disappointed to see 50 cent, jay Z, Kanye west and all these other idiots on screen with their stupid baggy clothes calling each other N***a. Fot the love of equality, when will these rappers just stop trying to look rich and instead try and enrich some black lives that matter? Footage of Sean Combs getting out of his private jet? Hey, kids in the bronx Just so you know, that isn't reality. Get out of the airplanes and into the community gardens you materialistic wanker.
