As someone who grew up primarily in the 90’s, hip-hop & R&B became a huge affinity for me which was the key to lead me into the journalism field that I happily have worked in for the past six years. Some of the biggest influencers growing up that got me to this point was Puff Daddy, Jay-Z and a plethora of other artists that shaped the way for today’s generation of rappers and hip-hop to do what they do the best. Well, the streets of Brooklyn will be buzzing at a deafening level on May 20th, when Puff Daddy & The Family will reunite for one night only at the legendary Barclay Center on May 20th. What is the occasion? To celebrate my favorite hip hop artist of all time’s birthday- The Notorious B.I.G.
Let’s keep it real here- the roster for this concert would make any hip-hop connoisseur lose his or her freaking mind. On top of Puff Daddy hosting the event, it will feature legendary Bad Boy members such as Mase, Total, 112, Faith Evans, Lil’ Kim, French Montana, Mario Winans and more. To add further fuel to this amazing line up is the one and only Mary J. Blige and Brooklyn’s finest and icon in the industry Jay-Z. Holy… freaking… god!
“This isn’t just another concert — This is hip-hop history,” said Sean “Diddy Combs aka Puff Daddy. “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.”
The event will be produced by Live Nation. Tickets for the event will be available at www.livenation.com beginning Saturday, April 2 at 11:00am local. Should be an absolutely epic night!
