Just a little idea I've been thinking about. A while back, Jay-Z had a 10th anniversary concert for the release of his widely regarded classic debut album, "Reasonable Doubt". He performed the album in it's entirety with guest appearances (not all of the guest appearances due to various circumstances, but where they couldn't get the same people, they had other people perform). I've been thinking, how cool would it be if Diddy did that with "No Way Out"? July 22, 2007 will mark the 10th anniversary of its release.

"No Way Out" is generally not regarded as the classic that "Reasonable Doubt" is. Nonetheless, many people (and especially fans, of course) do consider it a classic. It remains one of the best selling rap albums of all time. It is certified 7x platinum. No Way Out had 1 3x platinum single, 1 2x platinum single, 1 platinum single and 1 gold single. Insane. It spawned 7 music videos.

Consider the caliber of the guest artists: The Notorious B.I.G., Busta Rhymes, Mase, Lil' Kim, Carl Thomas, Jay-Z, Black Rob, The Lox, Ginuwine, Twista, Foxy Brown, Faith Evans and 112. Obviously, Biggie is not here. But, that didn't stop them from performing Brooklyn's Finest at Jay-Z's concert. A bigger problem would be the bad feelings that exist between Diddy and Mase and Lil' Kim as well as Black Rob being in jail. I have a feeling the rest would make it.

Perhaps, in 6 months from now, Mase will be on some other label and that'll be worked out. He doesn't seem to have any big issues outside of that. Lil' Kim, who knows. But, who cares? Jay-Z didn't have everyone, either, and that includes people who were alive.

But, if it could be pulled together, it would be a sight to see. I probably wouldn't be able to make it, so a DVD release would be required!
