There was a Brooklyn Takeover last night, and that was by none other than Bad Boy and Puff Daddy among other close celebrity friends in the building with their classic cameos. The Bad Boy Reunion tour kicked off the 25-city tour on Friday, May 20th and what a night to remember! Ironically the tour kicked off a night before what would have been Biggie‘s 44th birthday. Puffy was in rare form in the Barclay Center dominating the stage while hosting and performing. Puff was also accompanied by his Bad Boy legendary crew.
The family took us back with Mase hitting the stage, The LOX, 112 performed “Dance With Me,“ Faith Evans sang her heart out on “Soon as I Get Home” and Mary J. Blige killed it; Puff also complimented the Queen of Hip Hop Soul by saying, “There would be no Bad Boy without you.” Lil’ Kim made you put your lighters up, Total, Carl Thomas, Mario Winans, Usher, and Busta Rhymes reminded us all why we were fans of that era. Jadakiss made a special appearance on stage with The Lox, while French Montana gave us a dose of new-school flava in hip-hop.
Jay-Z and Nas made honorable appearances during reunion kick off night, with hits like, “Public Service Announcement” and “Made You Look.“ Jay-Z traveled 5,000 miles home to Brooklyn to be apart of this historical hip-hop night.
The crowd was hype filling the room with energy, chanting “Bad Boy” as Puff lit the arena and fans bought shirts in representation and honor of Notorious B.I.G. They also sipped on cocktails that were made with Puff Daddy’s own Ciroc vodka. Everyone was reacting and social media, including Puff himself posting pictures and discussing the moments of the greatest show on earth.
