The last thing Sean Combs needed was another name, but that’s just what he got at Howard University on Saturday. You can now call him “Dr.”
The hip-hop mogul was awarded an honorary degree in humanities from the HBCU in exchange for his commencement address. Combs attended Howard as a business major but dropped out in 1990 to pursue his dream of music business domination. When he was first announced as the commencement speaker, some students were upset since he didn’t actually graduate. Fortunately, that all blew over. Diddy brought his mother, Janice, whom he called the “love of his life.” Later, he posted a picture on Instagram with his degree and all of his children.
