*Sean “Diddy” Combs stopped by Hot 97 to discuss the highly anticipated Bad Boy Reunion Concert on May 20th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. A second night was added and they’re both sold out! The reunion concerts will mark the first time all living Bad Boy artists will perform on one stage together, along with special guests Mary J. Blige, Jay Z, and maybe even a hologram performance from the late Notorious B.I.G.
Biggie’s daughter, T’yanna Wallace, recently blasted her “uncle” for failing to offer tickets to B.I.G.’s family saying, “Haven’t spoken to puff in years, I guess that’s why I didn’t get a ticket to the concert”. Wallace later acknowledged clearing up the misunderstanding with her father’s former best friend. Still – Combs addressed her claims during his interview with Ebro on Hot 97.
Combs said, “I already had tickets set up for the family of course, people were notified but, they didn’t notify her” he continued, “I called her and let her know that I love her, and I also told her – as a man, if I ever made you feel like I haven’t checked on you enough, I apologize.”
During the interview, Diddy also spoke about signing his youngest son Christian Combs, to Epic Records, the hype surrounding the Bad Boy Reunion concert and his feelings about a Biggie hologram.

Faith Evans recently made the announcement that she was working on a duet album using the vocals of her late husband called “The King & I.” She also told Billboard that Biggie’s family is collaborating with Los Angeles-based Augmented Reality Holographic Technology (ARHT) to bring his image to the stage and to feature in music videos.
“We actually are in development with a hologram [company] but I don’t necessarily know to what extent I’m going to perform with it but I definitely want to debut it probably in the first video for the album and maybe use it a little bit performance-wise but that depends on a lot of things.” Evans said, adding, “If this Bad Boy [reunion] tour ever really happens, that might be something we might consider and if I was to go on that tour, of course, I’d use it but just not over-use it.”
Biggie’s mom, Voletta Wallace, told Billboard, “Words can’t even capture how elated I am for the world to finally see my son again on stage and beyond. Christopher’s impact and legacy will not only live through his past work, but also the new experiences which have been made possible through ARHT Media.”
Biggie’s digital image will premiere in Faith’s upcoming music video from their duets album.
