This past weekend, Detroit experienced the celebration of 20 years of Bad Boy Entertainment. The D embraced the legacy of Bad Boy Entertainment courtesy of Sean “P Diddy” Combs. To prepare loyal Bad Boy fans for the Bad Boy Family Reunion concert at the Palace of Auburn Hills, Diddy along with the Invisible Bully brand and Detroit’s own Detroit vs. Everybody apparel store, opened a “sicker than your average” pop up shop of Bad Boy gear. Fans embarked on the world of Bad Boy vs. Everybody September 1-2 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
Sponsored by Ciroc and Revolt, Detroit was one of three pop up shop locations that opened over the weekend along with Baltimore and New York City. It will continue on to 16 more cities following the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour. Earlier in the day, the women of Bad Boy hosted an empowerment brunch, followed by an afternoon of Bad Boy music in rotation, finger foods, and complimentary Ciroc drinks during a lounge party at the pop up shop. The Bad Boy vs. Everybody lounge party was held on the fourth level of Detroit vs. Everybody’s Eastern Market location. The vibe was chill as Bad Boy supporters gathered around, networking and mingling while proudly rocking their Bad Boy vs. Everybody, Bad Boy Invisible Bully and Label Us Notorious gear.
