History was made as Diddy and several artists of Bad Boy entertainment rocked the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Friday (May 20).
The all-star concert was dedicated to the late Notorious B.I.G. who would have celebrated his 44th birthday today (May 21). According to the New York Daily News, music legends Mary J. Blige, Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Jay Z, Rick Ross, Usher and more graced the stage to celebrate Bad Boy Records’ musical legacy.
Some of the highlights at the event included Mary J. Blige doing the Uptown dance during her performance of “Be Happy.” That was followed by Jay Z and MJB performing “Can’t Knock the Hustle” (from Hov’s Reasonable Doubt album).
Elsewhere, Faith Evans performed her 1995 ballad “As Soon as I Get Home.” Another highlight was Total reuniting onstage to perform some of their classic hits. The LOX also came together for a quick medley of their hits as well.
Also joining Diddy onstage was Lil Kim. Dressed in all-white the Queen Bee looked flawless as she performed songs like “Hardcore.” Even Ma$e showed up to take fans back down memory lanes.
Former Bad Boy artists 112, Carl Thomas and Mario Winans also serenaded the sold-out crowd with their respective songs.
The concert is a precursor to a planned 25-city tour that is expected to kick off in August.
Congratulations to Diddy and the rest of the Bad Boy Records Family.
