I just saw the best. concert. of. my. life. I've seen pretty much every artist live so it takes a lot to turn my head but the Bad Boy Reunion show at Barclays Center this weekend was on another level. Puff Daddy brought back the entire Family for three hours of nonstop hits. Ma$e, Total, Faith Evans, Carl Thomas (who KILLED IT), Lil Kim, Lil Cease, Black Rob, 112, Mario Winans, French Montana, etc. PLUS a ton of special guests including Jay Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Mary J. Blige and Usher.
As a kid, I was obsessed with all things Bad Boy Records. I interned at the label in 2005 and Puffy is pretty much the reason I've wanted to work in hip-hop in the first place. To see (and hear) the soundtrack of my life on the anniversary of the late Notorious B.I.G.'s birthday was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
