Puff Daddy Performs Bad Boy Classics on ‘Today’
If you didn’t know, P. Diddy runs the city and shows no pity, which today (May 20) means performing on the Today show with a slew of Bad Boy affiliated artists for a packed-in crowd at Rockefeller Center. The performance was the first in the show’s Citi Summer Concert Series, and comes the morning before Puff and his Bad Boy family take the stage at the Barclays Center for a two-night reunion event.
The Today performance then gives a small taste of what fans can expect, as the Bad Boy boss brought out Ma$e, 112 and Busta Rhymes throughout his medley performance which included, “Bad Boy for Life,” “Been Around the World,” “Feel So Good,” “Peaches and Cream,” “I Need A Girl Pt. 1,” “Pass the Courvoisier Part 2 (Remix),” “Mo Money Mo Problems” and “Finna Get Loose.” There is truly no denying the Bad Boy catalog and even Hoda Kotb can be seen shaking her tail feather to the constant stream of hits.
The Brooklyn shows taking place Friday and Saturday (May 21) were originally planned to coincide with what would have been The Notorious B.I.G.’s 44th birthday. The demand was so incredible though that Puff and his crew are taking their reunion on the road for a 25 city tour this summer. If anticipation wasn’t already going through the roof, Puff’s Today extravaganza will surely send it there.
