Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Family reunion tour launched a little early. Ahead of the beloved hip-hop crew’s sold-out anniversary trek, the group hit the Today show Friday morning to ring in the program’s summer concert series.
Puff Daddy and company ran through an arsenal of classic tunes, including “Bad Boy For Life,” “I Need A Girl (Pt. 2)” and the late Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems.” Busta Rhymes led “Pass The Courvoisier,” from his 2001 album Genesis, and Mase graced the stage for his 1997 entry “Feel So Good.”
The mini-concert lands just hours before the collective’s back-to-back reunion shows, taking place Friday and Saturday night at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The sets will feature performances from Jay Z, Mary J. Blige, Faith Evans, Lil Kim, Mase, French Montana, Total, 112, and Mario Winans. The first night marks what would have been Notorious B.I.G.’s 44th birthday.
On August 25, the rap squad will take to the road for their newly announced 25-date trek, with stops in major hot spots like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. Puff Daddy recently revealed he was retiring from music to pursue an acting career, so this could be the last chance to catch him live.
