Puff Daddy to celebrate Notorious B.I.G with NYC concert
NEW YORK (AP) — Puff Daddy will celebrate the late Notorious B.I.G’s birthday with a concert featuring Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige and Jay Z.
The “One Night Only Bad Boy Family Reunion” concert will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on May 20. It’s a day before what would have been Notorious B.I.G’s 44th birthday.
Puff Daddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, is from New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.
Notorious B.I.G, who was from Brooklyn, died in 1997 at 24. He released multiplatinum albums and hit singles like “Hypnotize” and “One More Chance” on Combs’ Bad Boy imprint. Others from that roster will perform at the upcoming concert, including Mase, 112, The Lox, Total, Mario Winans and current signee French Montana.
Tickets go on sale Saturday.
