Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - 11/99, p.181
6 out of 10 - "...a record more about streetwise cameos than the bubbly, soda-pop hooks of NO WAY OUT. The guests include hip-hop's deadliest enlisted men....But then again, PD's always onto the next big thing. He's most convincing when talking about his guiding light, Jesus..."
Entertainment Weekly - 9/3/99, pp.67-8
"...It makes for morbidly fascinating listening - frankly, picking out the instances of lyrical alarmism is more fun than playing spot-the-sample..." - Rating: B-
The Source - 10/99, pp.219-20
3 mics out of 5 - "...some of the most formulaic hip-hop this side of Wil Smith. With his sophomore record, P-Diddy follows tried-and-true templates to a t....He enlists a virtual army of guest MCs and ghostwriters....The guest spots are FOREVER's saving grace..."
Rap Pages - 11/99, pp.149-54
"...Although FOREVER is not bad, other artists generally have better production, and, lyrically, Puff's solo attempts are not as successful. Puffy reminds you of a band that creates good songs whose lead vocalist sucks....He understands his limitations - he just ignores them..." - Rating: C

Sean "Puffy" Combs gets behind the mic once again for his sophomore solo effort, FOREVER. Packed with guest appearances from such artists as R. Kelly ("Satisfy You"), Jay-Z ("Do You Like It...Do You Want It") and Redman ("Fake Thugs Dedication"), FOREVER is fifteen tracks deep. Known for sampling pop and R&B hits from the past and reworking them into sparkling hip-hop gems, Puff relies on various producers to keep the sounds fresh on FOREVER, including Mario Winans, Carlos Broady, and Nashiem Myrick. A track featuring the late Notorious B.I.G. and Lil' Kim called "Real Niggas" is also featured on the album. Other notable tracks include "Angles With Dirty Faces (featuring Bizzy Bone)"; a group cut called "Reverse," featuring Shyne, G-Dep, Cee-Lo, Busta Rhymes, and Sauce Money; and "P.E. 2000," where Puff drops new flavor on the classic Public Enemy track "Public Enemy No. 1."
