Puff Daddy and the Family’s Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour has been one of the most talked about tours of the year. With its roster of some of the most memorable artists of our generation, it is quickly becoming one of the most historical concerts in Hip-Hop. Dubbed as “the greatest show on earth,” Diddy enlists a surprise guest at every tour stop. Chance the Rapper (Chicago), Kanye West (New York) and Erykah Badu (Dallas) are among artists that have been called to the stage in different cities.
DMX is another artist who has made a few appearances on the tour. And for good reason. There’s no doubt that DMX is one of the most memorable and influential rappers of our time. On the tour, he’s not only performed classic hits, but he’s also led the artists in prayer, backstage. Now, DMX has become a permanent part of the tour.

The tweet was accompanied with a special video message from DMX.

To be a part of something like this is crazy,” he exclaimed.
And we can only assume that Diddy is just as grateful to have the experienced and talented master on the team.

DMX is the only artist not a part of the Bad Boy Family invited to be a part of the tour. But he will be joining his fellow Ruff Ryders label mates, The L.O.X, who were first signed to Bad Boy.
On opening night, at Chicago’s United Center, DMX gathered with all the artists backstage and led them in prayer. “We thank you for this gathering of souls. We thank you for your presence. We ask that your grace and blessings are upon the show this evening,” he began the prayer. Later on in the show, he surprised fans with his classic hits…
