PUFF Daddy officially kicked off the “Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour” with a bang in Chicago on Thursday September 1, following a brief delay due to shoulder surgery.
As if having his entire Family on the run wasn’t enough, Diddy had a few tricks up his sleeve for opening night at the United Center.
One of those surprises came by way of Chance the Rapper, who performed “No Problem” for his hometown.
Puff didn’t stop there. Ever the crowd pleaser, the mogul maestro also brought out Jeremih for a performance of “oui.”
Guests weren’t just onstage. DMX, for instance, stopped by to lead Bad Boy in prayer.
“We thank you for this gathering of souls,” said X, while Puff and the Fam bowed their heads. “We thank you for your presence. We ask that your grace and blessings are upon the show this evening.”
And boy did the Family show out. Lil’ Kim, Ma$e, French Montana, Faith Evans, Total, 112, Carl Thomas, and the rest of the crew ran through hit after hit during opening night of the 20-date tour, which continues through Oct. 4.
As part of the tour, Bad Boy has also announced “Reunion Tour Pop-Ups” at every stop on the nationwide trek. – www.rap-up.com
