Jay Z Joins Hip-Hop Royalty at Puff Daddy’s Star-Studded Bad Boy Records Event

During a guest appearance at rapper Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Family Reunion show at the Barclays Center on Friday night in New York, though, Jay Z didn’t betray any negative feelings—he delivered the most powerful moment of the three-hour-plus show with “Public Service Announcement,” one of his most engaging live tunes. It was his first performance since the April 23 release of “Lemonade,” which topped the charts and is the most highly-rated album of the year, according to
Jay Z’s spot was part of a show organized by Puff Daddy celebrating his storied label Bad Boy Records, New York’s 1990s hip-hop scene, and the 44th birthday on May 21 of the Notorious B.I.G.—“the greatest rapper of all time,” Puff Daddy said—who died in 1997. Puff Daddy founded Bad Boy Records, Biggie’s label home, in 1993.
“Two fingers in the sky for B.I.G. tonight,” Jay Z said, storming the stage midway through the evening and efficiently punching out a few songs with Puff Daddy that raised the energy level of the show. “Whenever I get in trouble, this is the one I call,” Puff Daddy said, in praise of Jay Z, who he said came from 5,000 miles away for the Brooklyn event.
