Reunited and it feels so good. Puff Daddy and the family (well, most of it) put the rumors to rest and reunited to deliver one of the most anticipated performances at Sunday’s BET Awards.
The 11-minute Bad Boy reunion kicked off with Puff and Ma$e on “Feel So Good,” donning their signature red leather outfits. 112 followed, bringing “Peaches & Cream,” as it segued quickly into Diddy’s “I Need a Girl Part Two.” Faith Evans arrived in a red mink for “Love Like This,” and pandemonium ensued.
The momentum remained for Bad Boy 2.0 artist French Montana as he delivered his verse from Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Ni**a (Remix).” Biggie’s verse from Total’s “Can’t You See” set off the classic “All About the Benjamins” with Jadakiss and Sheek Louch front and center.
Of course it couldn’t be complete without the Queen Bee. Rising from beneath the stage like a phoenix, Lil’ Kim asked “Wanna bumble with the bee, huh?” spitting her “Benjamins” verse over the beat to “Queen Bitch.”
Following Kim, Diddy fell down through an open hole in the stage (making for some hilarious memes), but kept going (take that, take that).
While the crowd was still amped, Ma$e and Puff returned for “Mo Money Mo Problems” and Biggie’s voice could be heard as the track emanated over the award show airwaves.
Diddy capped it off by debuting his new single “Finna Get Loose” with help from Pharrell, while Chris Brown danced through the aisles and Janelle Monáe joined her Bad Boy family, making this reunion a most memorable one.
