Puff Daddy will celebrate the late Notorious B.I.G’s birthday with a concert featuring Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige and Jay Z
Puff Daddy has announced the “Bad Boy Family Reunion,” a one-night-only concert to celebrate the late Notorious B.I.G and Bad Boy Records. The evening is being billed as the reunion of Puff Daddy and the Family. (A similar reunion happened at last year’s BET Awards.) Mase, 112, Faith Evans, Lil’ Kim, Jay Z, Mary J Blige, French Montana, the Lox, Total, and Mario Winans will perform. The show will take place at the Barclays Center in Biggie’s native Brooklyn on May 20, the night before what would have been the rapper’s 44th birthday.
“This isn’t just another concert—this is hip-hop history,” Puff said in a press release. “The Bad Boy Family includes some of the biggest names in music and songs that helped define a whole generation of music. Also, we are celebrating one of the greatest of all time—Notorious B.I.G. This will be a night to remember. I can’t wait to see you all there.”
Recently, Evans revealed that she was planning a posthumous collaborative album with Biggie, tentatively slated to drop this fall. She also hinted at potential live performances featuring a Biggie hologram.
