Road to the BET Awards 2015: Puff Daddy and the Family

I thought he told you that he won't stop.

Puff Daddy (P. Diddy) - "P. Diddy run the city, show no pity" were the words uttered by the Notorious BIG on the 1997 compilation album No Way Out. The album served as a debut of sorts for Puff (known to the Millennials as Diddy or the Ciroc guy), as a rapper. It was also one of the greatest label compilations in hip hop history and included a world tour. Well, it looks like Puff is bringing that old thing back for the BET Awards. We decided to take a guess at which members of the Family would grace the stage in their shiny suits...  (Photo: Ethan Miller/Getty Images for Clear Channel)

The LOX - Consisting of Styles P, Jadakiss and Sheek Louch, the trio got their start battling for rep out in Yonkers, N.Y. By the mid-'90s their lyrical abilities had made their way on mixtapes throughout the city and they would eventually sign with Bad Boy. The death of their friend and mentor the Notorious BIG led to them recording the track "We'll Always Love Big Poppa," which appeared on No Way Out. Though no longer on the label, they continue to record. Most recently Jadakiss appeared on the BET.com original series #BLX.   (Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for GQ)

Lil Kim - "Wanna bumble with the Bee, huh?" For the uninitiated, Lil Kim redefined what it meant to be a female emcee in the '90s (watch the movie Notorious on BET Star Cinema for reference). Her appearance on No Way Out can be defined by her verse on "It's All About the Benjamins," which stands as one of the greatest from that era and can still be heard being recited whenever the song is played on the dance floor.   (Photo: WENN.com)

Ma$e - From 1995-1998 Ma$e was pretty much THAT dude. He was the model for what a jigged out Harlem-on-the-Rise rapper was supposed to be. His work on No Way Out helped shoot him into another level of superstardom. Of course things changed by the late '90s when he decided to become a pastor, but he still occasionally returns to music every few years. Will he return to the stage alongside the Family at BET Awards? We can only hope so.  (Photo: Ethan Miller/BET/Getty Images for BET)

112 - Remember the words "Room 112 where the players dwell"? 112 was cut from the same great R&B band cloth as Jodeci, Tony! Toni! Toné!, New Edition and more. On No Way Out they provided the vocals for "We'll Always Love Big Poppa" alongside the LOX.  (Photo: George De Sota/Getty Images)

Faith Evans - The First Lady of Bad Boy can be heard on the BIG tribute "I'll Be Missing You" off No Way Out. It was a beautiful, commemorative ballad that got spins on Top 40 radio and introduced a new generation to the Bad Boy Family. For Faith, the track was extremely personal as it was dedicated to a rap legend who was also her husband.  (Photo: Brad Barket/BET/Getty Images for BET)

Black Rob - Remember Black Rob? His verses on No Way Out were like, WHOA! Do yourself a favor: go back to the album and listen to "I Love You Baby." When you're done, ask yourself if this wasn't one of the best storytelling rap songs you've ever heard.   (Photo: Brad Barket/Getty Images)

Total - "Can't you see what you do to me?" Those words will forever be etched into the minds and playlists of those that love '90s R&B. Total was essentially 112's female counterparts (or maybe 112 was their male one) and knew a thing or two about putting out a hit. We're still sittin' home waiting for their jams to come on our Spotify list.  (Photo: Johnny Nunez/BET/Getty Images for BET)

Carl Thomas - Yes, he had you emotional. How crazy would it be if Carl Thomas came out and did the "If I Should Die Tonight" interlude or "Pain" from No Way Out? It would be even crazier if Twista hopped on stage with him and Diddy and did a rendition of "Is This the End?" Tune in to BET Awards 2015 on June 28 at 8P/7C to find out who shows up for the Family!  (Photo: PNP/WENN.com)
