Biography


Often changing his stage name, P. Diddy was actually born Sean John Combs on November 4, 1969 in Harlem, New York. During his high school years, due to his habit of puffing out his chest to make his body seemed bigger, he earned the nickname "puffy". Majored in business administration at Howard University, he had shown a strong business instinct early on as he managed to produce weekly dance parties and run an airport shuttle service in between classes. After dropping out of the institution, he took internship at Uptown Records and was recruited as a talent director before reaching the position of vice president. Successfully recruiting mainstream artists, he decided to leave the company and established his own record label.

Blige, Faith Evans and Biggie Smalls a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G. The sudden death of Big in March 1997 prompted Diddy to write a tribute song entitled "I'll be Missing You". Included in his debut album and launched his clothing line, Sean John. In the years to come, he had more albums in the market, they were "The Saga Continues..." (2001), "Press Play" (2006), and "Last Train to Paris" (2010).
