Diddy

Bad Boy founder Sean "Diddy" Combs was amid recording his debut album when his close friend and biggest signee, Notorious B.I.G. was brutally murdered. He decided to press on with the project, eventually naming it "No Way Out" and including material he recorded with Biggie as well as the album's most successful single, the hastily released, tear-jerking song, "I'll Be Missing You." The album went septuple platinum. (Photo: Larry Busacca/Getty Images for Caesars Entertainment)
