Thousands of musicians, celebrities, and party people have flooded Miami Memorial Day Weekends over the years, and the Best of the Best concert has become the unofficial crowning event. While Best of the Best began as a virtually all-dancehall event, in recent years it's morphed into a more globally urban lineup, with American hip-hop stars sharing the stage with the legends of the Caribbean.
Miami is Diddy's adopted second home, and the media mogul wouldn't miss the opportunity to celebrate his continued hold on mainstream pop culture. Despite his recent forays into television (both of the reality and fictionalized kind), his cologne, and his plans to, apparently, open a business school in New York, Sean Combs always returns to music. Not only is he the official host of Best of the Best, but he's also slated to perform a headlining slot with "unnamed friends." Considering Diddy's endless celeb-packed list of such friends, this should be one for the boldface-name books.
