P. Diddy Biography


Sean Combs was born in Harlem, New York, and grew up in Mount Vernon New York. His mother, Janice, was a teacher’s assist and part time model. His father, Melvin, was a crony of convicted drug dealer Frank Lucas. Sean’s father was shot to death, while Sean was still a child.

Sean was given the nickname “Puff” when he was little, because when angry, he would “huff and puff” at people.

He played football in high school and graduated from Mount Saint Michael Academy, a private Roman Catholic school, in 1987.

Sean dropped out of college in 1990 and began working as an intern at Uptown Records in New York. While working as a talent scout he developed Mary J. Blige and Jodeci.

After being fired by Uptown in 1993, Sean created his own record label, Bad Boy Records, in a joint venture with Arista Records. He took on a newcomer, Notorious B.I.G and Craig Mack. Both quickly made hit singles, along with very successful albums.

In 1997, using the name Puff Daddy, Sean recorded his first song as a rapper. His debut single, “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down”, spent 28 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number one. Sean’s debut album, “No Way Out”, was a huge success worldwide, but especially in the US, where it reached number one on the Billboard 200 in its first week.

Sean’s earnings and overall net worth can be attributed to more than his music. He started his own clothing line in 1998, has his own perfume line, and owns two restaurants in addition to his record label. Sean also owns major equity in Revolt TV, a 50 percent share of Cîroc vodka, along with the Enyce clothing line from Liz Claiborne.

Fortune magazine listed Sean Combs earnings for 2013 was 50 million dollars and that his net worth is 700 million dollars, which makes him the richest person in the hip hop/rap entertainment industry.
