The Bad Boy family can't stop, won't stop.
After announcing the reunion tour kicking off in August, Sean 'Diddy' Combs and Bad Boy Entertainment continue to celebrate their two decades in hip-hop and R&B with the release of the forthcoming Bad Boy 20th Anniversary box set edition.
The five-disc, 80-track set spans Bad Boy's rich catalog including hits from Puff, the late great Notorious B.I.G., 112, Faith Evans, Mase, Craig Mack, The LOX, Janelle Monáe, Danity Kane, Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana and Cassie among others. Expect rap anthems like 'Money, Power, Respect,' 'Juicy,' 'Hypnotize,' and 'Flava In Ya Ear (Remix),' party tunes including 'Love Like This' and 'Pop That' and such classic slow jams as 'Can't You See,' 'I Need a Girl' and 'I'll Be Missing You' to make the cut alongside a 64-page historiography and foreword covering the iconic label's legacy penned by esteemed hip-hop journalist Michael A. Gonzales.
'Bad Boy helped make hip hop what it is today -- and this collection highlights all the music, history and vision that made Bad Boy number 1.” said Puff Daddy in a statement sent to Billboard. “We wanted to thank our fans, celebrate the music, the people, and the Bad Boy lifestyle that have defined the past two decades. We’ve always made music that makes the people dance; this collection does all that and more, and it is a celebration of all things Bad Boy.”
Harve Pierre, the co-executive producer of the set, adds, 'It was a pleasure putting this collection together. It’s something that Bad Boy, the artists, producers, staff, peers and fans can cherish forever. For our generation, it’s a must-have music collection and for the newer generation, it should be used as an educational piece to understand how historic and timeless music really sounds like.”
