Get Your Paper Up, Biggie's Signed Bad Boy Contract Is Up For Auction
With the right chunk of change in your pocket, you may soon be able to own Biggie's signed Bad Boy contract. Paddle8, known for offering up rare documents and music memorabilia, have put up for auction what seems to be the holy grail of Golden Era documentation, which includes the late legend's contract, but does not stop even close to that point. Also included in the auction are documents that detail the acquisition of Bad Boy by Arista and Big's termination agreement from Uptown Records (drafted and signed just a few months before the release of his iconic debut, Ready To Die) which also states precisely how much he paid for the masters of his first two singles "Party And Bullshit" and "Flip Dat Shit." The documents also provide an intimate glimpse into the inner-workings of Bad Boy prior to acquisition, outlining Puffy's salary and how much Clive Davis' label would be contributing to the Bad Boy imprint. It's a rare and expensive opportunity to own a chunk of hip-hop history and a massive brag piece for the aspiring Golden Era archivist. Hit the link below to peep the documents for yourself. Just be wary. According to Rolling Stone, they're expected to sell between $5,000-$7,000. Happy bidding, y'all.
