The first - and probably not last - tour to honor the history of Bad Boy Records and the Notorious B.I.G. is going down at the AT&T Center Friday, September 16.
Masterminded by Sean John Combs (currently Diddy, formerly Puffy Daddy, formerly Puff, formerly Puffy, formerly P. Diddy, formerly relevant), the tour celebrating the east coast hip-hop label will feature Lil' Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, 112, Total, Carl Thomas, the Lox and French Montana.
When he's not hosting My Super Sweet 16 parties for his sons, designing stylin'-yet-affordable clothes, appearing in Muppets Most Wanted, slanging Ciroc and all that other stuff that have made him an estimated $735 million,Combs is putting together massive tours in celebration of the golden years of the label and those ridiculously awesome puffy jackets.
Combs' label Bad Boy Records, although currently home to six artists (two of the six being Combs and his offspring), helped launch the careers of not only the aforementioned musicians, but most notably the deceased Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls, with the release of his debut album Ready to Die, the label's first record.
Tickets prices are yet to be announced, but mark your calendars. For Bad Boy, there appears to be some life after death.
