Kirk Franklin and Kanye West. Chance The Rapper and Byron Cage. Puff Daddy and Isaac Carree? Well… not exactly, but close enough. Isaac Carree and Zacardi Cortez are singing background vocals on the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour that reunites entertainers Puff Daddy, Lil Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, Total, Carl Thomas, 112 and The Lox in venues around the country.

This isn’t anything new as gospel singers often provide background vocals for many artists outside of gospel music. So what makes this news? In the last few years we have seen a lot of notable gospel artists collaborating with those across the secular lines. Hey! Shirley Caesar even got a few stanzas in with Anthony Hamilton. well Sean “Diddy” Combs is known to have gospel influences in his music as well as his presentations, and adding Carree and Cortez might just be the thing to give that portion the authenticity it needs.

Zacardi reposted a post from Diddy; “I give all glory to God for this opportunity to come and see all of our true BADBOY FANS LIVE AND IN CONCERT! I want to thank all of you that have supported us over the last 20 years,”
Combs also told Ebony.com “I liked going to a Baptist church with my grandma; she was the one who really put me up on God. I don’t go to church every Sunday, and I’m not overly religious, and maybe I’m not the best person to do this album, but I want Thank You to be an album from the average person’s point of view to get our message across. Not all the artists are Bad Boy artists, but they’re all part of the family.”

The Bad Boy Reunion Tour is already under way.
