Bad Boy Records is back in a big way. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the iconic label, Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs is reuniting with artists who were previously on the roster and currently call it home for the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, including Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Ma$e, Mario Winans, Carl Thomas, Total, 112, French Montana, and the Lox, plus special guests. The crew plans on hitting the road on August 25 in Columbus, Ohio, for the first of 25 dates touching down in major cities across North America before wrapping in Oakland on October 8.
For Puff and his Bad Boy consortium, this year marks a victory lap for the collective, which sold more than 400 million combined records worldwide and scored 38 platinum and multi-platinum singles through the years. Since the label's inception, the artists have all found success with the company, with some branching off to pursue their careers elsewhere and others staying put. In anticipation of the upcoming tour, Complex reflects on the respective trajectories the reunion tour artists have taken.
