Back in March, Puff Daddy announced that he’s reunite with most of the ’90s Bad Boy roster — Mase, the Lox, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, 112, Total — for a massive Biggie tribute show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The show sold out so quickly that Puff added another show, then turned it into a full national arena tour. And since the first show is tonight, Puff and his comrades were on the Today show this morning to perform in the outdoor square they have for live shows. He started things off with a euphoric 12-minute medley that featured Mase, 112, and Busta Rhymes, then did the deathless “I’ll Be Missing You” and brought out the Lox and Lil Kim for “All About The Benjamins.” It’s a complete blast of a performance, especially for a damn morning show, and you can watch the whole thing below.
I am intensely jealous of everyone who will be at the show tonight.
