In one of the more buzzed-about moments of the 2015 BET Awards, the stars of Bad Boy Records including label founder Sean “Diddy” Combs, Mase, Lil’ Kim, R&B super-group 112 and rappers The LOX, reunited for an explosive performance.
Celebrating 20 years of chart-topping hits, with fallen member Notorious B.I.G. looming over them as large as ever, the ensemble cast dropped song after song, amping up the famous crowd of onlookers including Rihanna, Kelly Rowland and Ne-Yo.
Diddy opened the set with “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down,” rocking his signature ’90s-style track suit and glasses (it is, after all, twenty years later), with Mase joined him on stage for their classic “Feel So Good.”
Bad Boy diva Faith Evans joined Diddy before the show-stopping entrance of Lil’ Kim. Rising from beneath the stage, Kim busted out her verse from “All About The Benjamins” as the crowd screamed in approval.
Label crooners 112 belted out a few verses from “Peaches & Cream,” before a massive closing performance of B.I.G.’s posthumous 1997 hit “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems.”
