You’re asking: What is P. Diddy’s net worth? We may have an answer! Sean Combs (his real name), also goes by Puff Daddy, and P. Diddy. Sean Combs was born on November 4, 1969, in Harlem, New York. In 1974, his father was murdered leaving his mother to raise him alone. Unlike
Combs went a Catholic boys school in the Bronx. This was where he earned the nickname of “Puffy” because he had a habit of puffing out his chest to make his body seem bigger. He took to business like LeBron James to basketball and Bill Gates to technology.
He majored in business administration at Howard University and produced weekly dance parties while attending classes. Sadly, he also ended up dropping out of college the same way Mark Zuckerberg did.
While Zuckerberg dropped out to focus on Facebook, P. Diddy dropped out of college to pursue an internship at Uptown Records. His gamble paid off. Diddy was a star inside the company and quickly rose to the level of vice president. He left the company in the early ‘90s. P. Diddy’s net worth was growing.
In 1993, he created Bad Boy Entertainment and worked with many artists including Method Man, Mariah Carey, Babyface, Boyz II Men, Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige. His success rivaled that of Jay Z and Dr. Dre. However, he wasn’t done yet.
By 1997, Bad Boy Entertainment had sold nearly $100 million in recordings and made a multimillion-dollar deal with Arista Records for management of the label. After his close friend Biggie Smalls was murdered in 1997, P. Diddy recorded the tribute song ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ which topped the Billboard singles chart for eleven weeks. He had become a chart-topper just like Beyonce.
After the success of the song, P. Diddy released his first studio album, No Way Out. No surprise, the album debuted at number one and has sold over 7 million copies worldwide. P. Diddy’s net worth was ballooning by now.
After conquering the music industry, Diddy went into clothing design. He launched the Sean John clothing line. P. Diddy might be known for his music, but he had an eye for the business and has built an incredible empire. (Donald Trump could probably learn a few things from Diddy’s sprawling business ventures.)
As of 2019, Diddy has a net worth of $820 million, making him one of the wealthiest rappers ever. Diddy has six children from three different women, so it’s safe to his legacy will live on for a long time to come.
