Puff Daddy opened his Bad Boy Reunion tour in Chicago on Thursday (Sept 1) with a special guest. The rapper mogul told the crowd to make more noise than ever before for hometown hero Chance The Rapper.
Chance stormed out, performing “No Problem” off his May release Coloring Book.
Just this past Sunday, while Kanye West was introducing his video for “Fade” at the MTV Video Music Awards, he included both Puff and Chance as people in the audience whom he admires, saying, “I’m standing in front of my idol, Puff Daddy. I’m standing in front of my wife, Kim Kardashian West. I’m standing in front of the future: Chance the Rapper, 2 Chainz, Jaden Smith.”
The Reunion bill includes Lil’ Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, French Montana, the Lox, 112, Mario Winans, Total and Carl Thomas as well as some special guests, if the Chicago show gives us any indication. The tour heads to Baltimore next for a Saturday show before hitting Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
