Puffy is on the ‘Bad Boy Family Reunion’ tour, which reached Madison Square Garden this weekend. West joined the veteran rapper on stage to play ‘Father Stretch My Hands Part 1’ from West’s recent album ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
Diddy acted as West’s hypeman, with West commenting as he left the stage: “My idol – Puff Daddy. I love you, bro.”
The Chicago show on the tour saw Puff joined by Chance The Rapper and Jeremih.
The rapper, real name Sean Combs, has gone back to his original alias of Puff Daddy for the tour, which honours Combs’ former friend Notorious BIG. The pair were both on Bad Boy Records before BIG’s death in 1997.
The tour also features fellow Bad Boy artists Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Mase, French Montana, Mario Winans, 112, The Lox and Carl Thomas.
Explaining the tour, which runs until October 10, Puff said: “This isn’t just a concert, this is a moment in hip-hop and R&B history. It’s 20 years in the making, and is a celebration of the hits and the lifestyle of the Bad Boy experience. The Bad Boy Family set the standard for concert experience, and this tour will be a testament to that.”
Puff is due to release new album ‘No Way Out 2’ this year, a sequel to his 1997 debut album. His most recent album was ’11 11’ in 2014 with Guy Gerber.
