Sean “Diddy” Combs calls his Tribeca moment ‘surreal’

The rapper hosts a mini Bad Boy reunion at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of his new documentary, “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: The Bad Boy Story.”

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL / LIVE NATION PRODUCTIONS / BAD BOY ENTERTAINMENT) – A mini Bad Boy reunion was held at the Tribeca Film Festival on Thursday (April 27) as Sean “Diddy” Combs premiered his new documentary, “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story.”

The native New Yorker said debuting the film at Tribeca was fitting.

“It just feels like – it feels surreal but also I feel proud. I’ve been chasing a dream for a long time and to be debuting something in my city. I’m so New York, you know, and to be at the Tribeca Film Festival it’s beyond your dreams.”

Combs explained that the one hour and 15 minute movie started as a concert documentary and morphed into a story about family, tragedy and perseverance. The majority of the footage was filmed as Combs was putting together the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour to mark the label’s 20th anniversary.

After the screening, held at the Beacon Theater, rappers Lil Kim, Mase and other label members performed some of their biggest hits.

The film will premiere on Apple Music on June 25.
