The former Bad Boy artist appeared live onscreen for concertgoers at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center last week weekend to spit lyrics from his his 2000 song.
Shyne moved back to his home country, Belize, back in 2009. But that didn’t stop the rhymer from joining in the Bad Boy fun as he rapped in from of one of Belize’s famous Mayan temples. “Happy birthday to the greatest rapper of all time,” he said before getting into the track. “Notorious B.I.G.”
Diddy put together an epic lineup for The Notorious B.I.G.’s birthday (May 20) with his Bad Boy family. Lil’ Kim, Ma$e, Faith Evans, the LOX, French Montana, Total, 112, Mario Winans and Carl Thomas were just some of the artists who came out to perform. Bad Boy affiliates and friends such as Jay Z, Mary J Blige and DMX also stepped on the stage to perform.
The crew is slated to tour the country as well to lead up to the Bad Boy CEO’s retirement from music.
“This isn’t just a concert – this is a moment in hip-hop and R&B history,” said Diddy in a statement. “The family and I are so excited to welcome fans into this once in a lifetime experience. This tour is 20 years in the making, and is a celebration of the hits and the Bad Boy lifestyle. The Bad Boy Family has set the standard for concert excellence, and this tour will be a testament to that!”
