(AllHipHop News) Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs and Bad Boy Entertainment are celebrating the legacy of the iconic company with the 20th Anniversary Box Set Edition.
Eighty songs by Puff Daddy, The Notorious B.I.G., Craig Mack, Faith Evans, Total, Mase, 112, The Lox, and more are included in the collection. Plus, Hip Hop journalist Michael A. Gonzales provides the foreword to the accompanying 64-page historiography.
"Bad Boy helped make Hip Hop what it is today - and this collection highlights all the music, history and vision that made Bad Boy number 1,” states Combs. "We wanted to thank our fans, celebrate the music, the people, and the Bad Boy lifestyle that have defined the past two decades. We’ve always made music that makes the people dance; this collection does all that and more, and it is a celebration of all things Bad Boy.”
Puff Daddy serves as executive producer of the Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Box Set Edition. Bad Boy President Harve Pierre is the co-executive producer and curator.
“It was a pleasure putting this collection together. It’s something that Bad Boy, the artists, producers, staff, peers and fans can cherish forever,” says Pierre. “For our generation, it’s a must-have music collection and for the newer generation, it should be used as an educational piece to understand how historic and timeless music really sounds like.”
The Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Box Set Edition is scheduled for release on August 12. A pre-order option is now available on iTunes.
