Biggie Smalls has a recording deal on the horizon, but he doubts it’ll ever go through. Now that Puffy is out of a job, the future of Bad Boy looks dubious at best. If Puffy can’t find a new distributor fast, the songs Biggie’s been recording might never hit the airwaves.

Meanwhile, on the West Coast, Dr. Dre has been working day and night, crafting the beats for his debut solo album, but there’s only so much he can do on his own. If there’s any hope for the album, Dre will need to find a rapper whose voice and flow are as unique as his beats.
