The St. Lunatic called on JD as well as Polow Da Don, Bryan Michael Cox and Johnta Austin to dress up as the R&B group for his Halloween 22 The Mo-town Revue 50’s & 60’s Costume Party. The event took place on Monday (October 31) in Atlanta, Georgia, and also served as a party to celebrate Nelly’s 48th birthday.
Nelly and his crew had a field day dressed as the modern Temptations as they posed for pictures and even performed some of the original group’s timeless records such as “My Girl” and “Ain’t too proud to beg.”
If that wasn’t enough for guests, Usher joined Nelly and the crew on stage for a quick set of his own, dressed in a costume inspired by the late actor Clark Gable.
“‘MO’ Town’s Finest Happy Birthday’ Mo’ @nelly UR is truly -Dark Gable,” Usher captioned the post about his impromptu performance.
Although the new age Temptations had some stellar costumes, other people in the hip-hop community showed up with their costumes, such as Diddy’s get-up as Heath Ledger’s infamous Joker character from the 2008 film The Black Knight.
The Bad Boy Records mogul was not only dressed as The Joker, but was fully immersed in the manic character by adopting his creepy speech and piercing laugh as he roamed Los Angeles. He even bumped into Tyler The Creator, who approved of the well-executed costume.
Not everyone rocked Diddy’s costume, though. Power actor Michael J. Ferguson ran into Puff at one point and appeared not to recognize him in costume until he entered a heated exchange with him in the middle of the street.
A viral video of their confrontation showed Ferguson, who plays Francis “2-Bit” Johnson to 50 Cent’s Power universe where they sat up to a costumed Puff and called him “pussy” in front of a crowd of people.
Diddy took a few steps back and let out a hysterical laugh before replying, “You’re a clown!” But Puff quickly fell out of character and took up the tough talk.
“So what honey? You don’t like me?” he said. “So come to it, n-gga. If you don’t like me, your bad fronting. Come to it, bitch. Don’t fuckin’ play with me on Halloween. I’m out here with love, n-gga. “
The two continued their back and forth until Diddy revealed who he was to Ferguson. When the situation seemed to cool down, the two hugged it out, telling each other that they had no problem turning up the volume.
