Sunday Throwback: 1995 Source Awards Bad Boy :Total, Lil Kim, Diddy, Craig Mack,Notorious B.I.G. & Faith Evans Vs Death Row: Snoop, Dr Dre, Dogg Pound, DJ Quik. Who Nailed It? [3 Videos + Poll]

Video After The Jump

The Source Awards used to be the hip hop equivalent of The Grammys. In 1995 especially so, because two powerful labels, one from the east and one from the west would have a showdown to see who would outperform the other.

Suge Knight and Death Row Records brought Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik, Dr Dre, Lady Of Rage, Nate Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound to Madison Square Garden that day

While Bad Boy Records Ceo, Diddy brought Notorious B.I.G., Total, Craig Mack, Lil Kim, and Faith Evans.

It's debatable who had the better performance because they were both great, so I'll let you decide.

There was some negativity though. Suge Knight just couldn't let the night go without taking a swipe at Puffy whom he criticized for "dancing all up in the videos" before inviting artists to come join Death Row if they didn't want all that.

 

You can see that part at the end of the 2nd Bad Boy video.  All that did was fan the flames of the east coast vs west coast feud even more. 2Pac was in prison on a rape charge at the time or things might have gotten violent.  

 

As it turned out though, it was a peaceful event and everybody went home safe

Who do you think had the better performance out of the two camps?

 

R.I.P. B.I.G.
