Puff Daddy was born Sean Combs in Harlem, in 1969. He was interested in football as a child and that is where part of his nickname comes - "Puff" because that was what he would do when he was angry and "Daddy" because that is a synonym for player. After graduation he went on to study business at Howard University, but he dropped out after 2 years and started work as an intern at Uptown Records. His career advanced quickly – he soon became talent director and promoted artists such as Mary J. Blige.

In 1993 he got fired from the record company and he founded his own firm, Bad Boys Records – a very successful business venture that promoted a lot of artists who were unknown then, but are top of the list now.

Combs started his career as a rapper in 1997 when he produced his first album. His debut single was an instant success, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Other singles from the album also topped the charts and the album won the Grammy Award for the Best Rap Album in 1998. In 1999 he released his first solo album – another instant and resounding success – and in 2001 he surprised his fans with a gospel album and a name change, too, calling himself P. Diddy.

In 2005 he decided to change his stage name again, this time to Diddy, a name that he can use anywhere, except the UK where a DJ who had been using the name and had sued Combs, obtaining an injunction. 2005 is a year he spends trying himself as an actor and becoming widely appreciated as an artist – he plays in Carlito’s Way and A Raisin in the Sun and his name appears on the list of the Most Influential People of the Year published by Time.

His success continues today as well – during the last decade, Diddy has released a number of highly acclaimed albums, showed his talent on the big screen and he has become an appreciated fashion designer as well (the Dallas Mavericks wear his design on their alternate jersey).
