Back when Sean "Diddy" Combs was still Puff Daddy, he created one of the most successful hip-hop labels in history. Now, four of its top artists -- Faith Evans, Ma$e, Carl Thomas and Total -- reunite for the Legends of Bad Boy Records concert. With three platinum-certified albums (Faith, Keep The Faith and Faithfully), Evans is a five-time Grammy nominee and winner for "I'll Be Missing You," an homage to Notorious B.I.G., her late husband. Thanks to his instantly recognizable voice and baby-faced charm, Ma$e was one of Bad Boy's biggest stars, and he's back with a new catchy single, "Nothing." Best known for his No. 1 smash "I Wish" from his chart-topping album So Emotional, Thomas remains one of the finest R&B vocalists performing today. Finally, the "New Jill Flava" trio known as Total -- Keisha, Kima and Pam -- have reunited, ready to perform new music as well as hits like "Kissing You" and "Can't You See." Catch them all at this history-making event at the Saban Theatre. Learn More
