8 Ways to Get a Little More Extra for Tonight’s Bad Boy Family Reunion Takeover

Pour one out for Biggie, bust out those oh, so colorful Queen Bitch wigs, pass the Ciroc, slide on the Sean John, put a $ in your name and then collect all of the Harlem World All Stars(wherever they just might be), because in just a short while Diddy, Lil’ Kim, Carl Thomas, 112, Ma$e, Faith Evans, and of course, Total, will be descending upon the Wells Fargo Center to rightfully serve us with a stop on their Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour. 

While those attending tonight’s festivities (and that they most certainly will be) have been living that extra life since they snatched their tickets up, but since Philly is about to get served with some of the greatest hip hop and R&B tracks that hit our ’90s headphones, we need to be more than woke for the Bad Boy flavor that”s about to take over our lives once again. 

So, here are a 8 ways that you (yes, you, Ms. Minaj), can get a little more extra for tonight’s Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour.

As if that were fucking possible. 

1.Get a little “Juicy”… No explanation needed. 

2.Listen to “It’s All About the Benjamins” over and over again. First of all, this is something you should be doing on a regular basis anyway. Second of all…go. #whatthebloodclot 

3.Pay your music respects to the Queen Bitch…. Before Diddy and the gang announced their massive reunion tour earlier this year, he linked up with Los and Styles P on a gritty, grimy groove called “Auction,” which also co-starred the one and motehrfucking only, Ms. Lil’ Kim. Of course, just her presence alone gets us all in frenzy (anyone remember her entrance to the stage at last year’s BET Awards? Yes), which is why you should always bow down to the rap diva who gave us such treasures as “Crush On You,” “How Many Licks?”, “The Jump Off,” “Magic Stick” and “No Time.” So in case you wanted to know, you certainly will know once you read these 5 reasons as to why you should always musically respect Lil’ Kim, whether she’s on that “Auction” block or not. 

But first, here’s this track that we’ll never be able to forget anytime soon. 

4.Those grooves from 112, though…   Whether heating things up on the dance floor or in the bedroom to hits like “Peaches & Cream,” “Dance With You” and “Only You,” plain and simple, 112 was the fucking shit when it came to cooking up those essential baby makin’ bangers. However, when it comes to (sigh….) “Cupid,” pass the Bon Bons, please, because we fucking couldn’t then and we still fucking can’t now. Thanks, Slim. 

5.Be quickly reminded of what happens when the vocals of Ms. Evans and Mr. Thomas collide… It all comes down to a little, yet, oh, so big track called “Can’t Believe.” Just listen. 

6.Realize how much you need “What You Want” in your everyday lives…again. It’s Ma$e. It’s Total. It’s fucking everything and always will be. 

7.Get all sorts of down with this Total playlist. Because when it comes to Kima, Keisha and Pam (oh, shit, god dammit), it’s about a little thing called….respect. 

8.Just get ready to take that, take that, take that… Enough said. 

And then….of course.
