P. Diddy Early life
Sean John Combs was born on November 4, 1969 in Harlem Manhattan in New York City  and grew up in Mount Vernon, New York. His mother, Janice (Smalls), was a model assistant and teacher and his father, Melvin Earl Combs, served in the United States Air Force and was an associate of Frank Lucas, a convicted New York drug dealer.
At the age of 33, Melvin was shot to death while sitting in his car on Central Park West, when Combs was 2 years old.
Combs graduated from Mount Saint Michael Catholic Academy in 1987. He played football for the academy and his team won a section title in 1986.
P. Diddy said he was given the nickname Puff as a child, because he would be “huff and puff” when angry.
Combs was a business major at Howard University but left after his sophomore year. In 2014, he returned to Howard University to receive an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities and to deliver the University’s 146th Commencement Address.

Combs became an intern at Uptown Records in New York. While working as a talent director at Uptown, he helped develop Jodeci and Mary J. Blige.
In his college days P. Diddy had a reputation for throwing parties, some of which attracted up to a thousand participants. In 1991, Combs promoted an AIDS fundraiser with Heavy D held at the New York City College (CCNY) gymnasium, following a charity basketball game. The event was over-sold, and a stampede occurred in which nine people died.
1997–1998: “Puff Daddy” and No Way Out
In 1997, under the name Puff Daddy, P. Diddy recorded his first commercial vocal work 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.
His debut album, No Way Out, was released on July 1, 1997, through Bad Boy Records. Originally titled Hell up in Harlem, the album underwent several changes after The Notorious B.I.G. killed on March 9, 1997. Many of the label’s artists made guest appearances on the album.

No Way Out was a significant success, especially in the United States, where it reached number one on the Billboard 200 in its first week of release, selling 561,000 copies.
The album produced five singles: “I’ll Be Missing You,” a tribute to The Notorious B.I.G., was the first rap song to appear at number one on the Billboard Hot 100; it remained at the top of the chart for eleven consecutive weeks and reached several other charts worldwide.
1999–2000: Forever and Club New York
In April 1999, Combs was charged with assault as a result of an incident with Steve Stoute of Interscope Records. Stoute was Nas’s manager, for whom Combs had filmed a video earlier that year for the song “Hate Me Now.”
P. Diddy was concerned that the video, which featured a photo of Nas and Combs being crucified, was blasphemous. He asked for his scenes on the cross to be removed, but after it was broadcast on MTV on April 15, Combs visited Stoute’s offices and injured Stoute. Combs was charged with second-degree assault and criminal mischief, and was sentenced to go to a one-day anger management class.
2005–2009: “Diddy” and Press Play
On August 16, 2005, Combs announced on Today that it is changing its stage name again; he would call himself “Diddy”. Combs said fans didn’t know how to tackle it, which led to confusion. In November 2005, London-based music artist and DJ Richard Dearlove, who had been performing under the name “Diddy” since 1992 – nine years before Combs even used “P. Diddy” – sought an injunction in the High Court of Justice in London.
He received an out-of-court settlement of £ 10,000 in damages and more than £ 100,000 in costs. Cribs can no longer use the name Diddy in the UK, where it is still known as P. Diddy. A charge of assault against P. Diddy was resolved in his favour in 2005.
P. Diddy Business career
Fortune magazine ranked Combs at number twelve on their top 40 entrepreneurs under the age of 40 in 2002. Forbes Magazine estimates that P. Diddy earned $ 130 million for the year ending May 2017, putting it at number one among entertainers. In 2019, its net worth was estimated at $ 740 million.

California billionaire Ronald Burkle invested $ 100 million in the company in 2003.
Also in 2003, the National Labor Committee revealed that factories producing the garments in Honduras violated Honduran labor laws.
The allegations included employees being subjected to body searches and involuntary pregnancy tests. The bathrooms were locked and access was tightly controlled. Workers were forced to work overtime and were paid sweatshop wages.
Charles Kernaghan of the National Labor Committee told The New York Times that “Sean Puff Daddy obviously has a lot of impact, he can literally do a lot overnight to help these workers.”
