And Many More To The Bad Boy Reunion Show
With a lineup that included Lil Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, The Lox, French Montana, and may more, it was sure to be a spectacle, but naturally, Puff managed to pull out quite a few surprises as well.
Anyone else would crumble after losing their job, but Puff’s ear for talent was uncanny. He was instrumental in developing Mary J. Blige, and nearly two decades later she was still appreciative. When Blige came out to perform timeless hits “Real Love,”

“Be Happy,” and “You Don’t Have to Worry,” she thanked him for taking a tomboy living in the projects and transforming her into the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, whose signature baggy look became a staple of the ’90s.
“There will be no Bad Boy without Mary J. Blige,” Puffy said, which set the tone for a deafening singalong of “I’m Goin’ Down.”
Hip-hop comedy duo itsthereal managed to put together not only the insane setlist, but a Spotify playlist dedicated to the show. Check that out below, as well as a few clips from the performances. The second show goes down tonight, and we can only imagine there will be even more surprises unveiled this time around.
The surprises went into overdrive after that. Busta returned to perform “Pass the Ciroc” (no Courvoisier). Lil’ Kim—dressed in all white—rapped her verse on “Quiet Storm (Remix),” continuing to prove she’s the OG Queen Bee with a word-for-word exchange of “Queen Bitch” with the crowd.It wasn't the greatest show ever but man oh man did Bad Boy restore the feeling. pic.twitter.com/v5UeWWVqT5— ItsTheReal (@itsthereal) May 21, 2016
Mario Winans hit us with “I Don’t Wanna Know,” Cassie crushed her smash single “Me & U,” and Ty Dolla $ign joined Diddy for “You Could Be My Lover.” Usher also surprised with “U Don’t Have to Call” and “I Need a Girl, Pt. 1 and 2.”
Just when Puff had the crowd reeling, he wanted to make sure we were really having fun. He saved the best set of songs for last, dedicating a portion of the show to Biggie where he projected videos from songs such as “Warning” and “Juicy.”
This was the apex because the entire Bad Boy family also returned for remixes and guest spots. Lil Cease did his thing on “Player’s Anthem,” as well as Kim and The LOX for the remix of “It’s All About the Benjamins.” Black Rob performed his street banger “Whoa!” Ma$e joined Puff and tore down “Mo Money Mo Problems.”
